Do you remember my Born to Build art I made for Charlie a while ago? Well, when Mary from Delicious Decals wrote me to invite me to do a project with her vinyl I knew just what to do! I’ve always wanted to try vinyl on wood, and this was my chance. It was such an easy project, but I thought I’d post a tutorial for it just in case you’re interested in trying it out and never worked with vinyl before.
I started out by staining a scrap piece of 1×10 that was just the right size. I ordered my custom art from Delicious Decals in an 8×10 size.
I peeled the backing off. The vinyl and transfer paper is still pretty sticky.
Place the transfer paper straight down onto your board. Don’t worry if it’s not straight, you can easily reposition it.
Press down firmly over your vinyl with a credit card or other straight, flat device.
Carefully peel back the transfer paper, making sure the vinyl is still in place. Secure any loose spots, and you’re done!
A huge shout out to Delicious Decals for generously offering me a sample of their vinyl in my design to work with. And stay tuned tomorrow for a giveaway for a chance to do your own vinyl project!
