Today I’d like to share with you something I discovered out of necessity, how to customize your vinyl. I LOVE to create frugally and often try a lot of different things to achieve that. I was trying to create a piece of art using drift wood and vinyl. I knew what I wanted but didn’t have the color of vinyl I needed. I am limited to only the colors of vinyl JoAnn Fabrics has and that’s pretty limited so I decided to try painting it. I had nothing to lose except a piece of vinyl. So I got out my vinyl and my paint and tried it and I LOVED it.
Here’s how I did it.
I used a piece of white vinyl and found a paint color that would coordinate with my project. It happened to be a “pearl” color which I thought added a lot interest.
I painted the vinyl with a foam brush and let it dry.
Once dry I ran it through my silhouette machine just like I would normally do. I cut out the word “beach” and I also cut an anchor and piece of coral. I put the pieces on a piece of driftwood I found on the beach.
Here it is in my bathroom. Last month I showed you how to make your own wall art from chargers. If you missed it you can find it here. I think my customized piece of vinyl goes great with the rest of the room. What do you think?
Here are a few of my favorite DIY Projects! Come over and take a peek.
