I enjoy decorating the walls in my home. I have actually been recognized to repaint them with murals and cover them with pictures. Now that I have a cutting machine, it's SO simple to create my own wall decor with vinyl! But here's the important things– I like to make wall style that is BIGGER than will certainly fit on a conventional 12 ″ x 12 ″ cutting mat. At first it could appear difficult, however you tin totally do it as well as I'm mosting likely to reveal you just how to make these big wall decals and also larger-than-mat tasks.

PRODUCTS LIST (has my associate web links):.
– Removable plastic, ideally in rolls (I made use of the Cricut brand– one roll each of Cream, Caribbean Blue, Sunshine Yellow, Flamingo Pink, and white, plus 2 rolls of Grape ).
– A 24" long reducing mat (if you don't have one, you can utilize a 12" reducing floor covering and also reduced the style right into smaller sized areas).
– Transfer tape (I used three rolls of Cricut transfer tape).
– Painter's tape.
– Weeding device.
– Scissors.
– Craft knife or X-acto knife.
– A means to reduce your vinyl (I made use of the outstanding Cricut).
– My free SVG/DXF/PDF cut files/patterns (Style # 138) (readily available in my totally free source collection– obtain the password at the bottom of this post).

Initially, allow's consider the kind of wall surfaces that function best– these huge vinyl stickers are going to work best on smooth walls. You'll find it a difficulty if you have textured wall surfaces. For this tutorial, I had Greg repaint a 4 ′ x 4 ′ board with an indoor flat paint, specifically the same things most of us carry our walls. As well as I put huge, 3-foot square plastic design on it. Likewise make certain your wall surface is clean and also without dirt.

Next, the plastic! It is essential that you use removable vinyl on your walls– if you don't, after that when you go to eliminate your huge wall surface decal since it's time to move or you wish to freshen your look, you might mistakenly take some drywall off with it. But if you utilize detachable plastic, you will not have any problems eliminating it. Cricut says it's removable for approximately two years, no doubt due to the fact that adhesives do break down gradually. So keep that in mind, especially if you're a renter.

And also what regarding the mat? You tin utilize a common 12 ″ x12 ″ mat to do this if that's all you have, but if you can obtain a 12 ″ x24 ″ mat– it'll suggest less work for you! I used a 12 ″ x 24 ″ cutting floor covering. As a matter of fact, I made use of two so I could obtain the following mat prepared while the other one was cutting.

Finally, you require to take into consideration the style. Not all styles will convert well to the wall surface– you'll wish to begin with a high-quality SVG, not a PNG or various other reduced resolution picture. For this tutorial, I attracted a couple of cute unicorns. They're sized at 10 ″ in the file, however you can scale them approximately whatever dimension you desire (I mosted likely to 31 ″ high). Currently as 31 ″ high is as well large to all fit on one mat, you need to separate it right into mat-sized items and after that join it after you sufficed.

ACTION 1: OBTAIN A DESIGN YOU TIN SCALE UP AND PREPARE IT FOR CUTTING.

STEP 2: PREPARE AS WELL AS CUT YOUR PLASTIC.

STEP 3: WEED YOUR VINYL FOR YOUR WALL SURFACE STICKER.

STEP 4: PUT TOGETHER AND LAYER YOUR STYLE.

STEP 5: APPLY YOUR TRANSFER TAPE.

ACTION 6: PUT YOUR HUGE DECAL ON YOUR WALL SURFACE.

So I'm hoping you currently see exactly how to make huge jobs that are larger than your reducing floor covering. It's uncomplicated to do– you simply require to separate whatever you want to make right into mat-sized pieces and then put them with each other once more after you reduced them out.
