Merry Christmas Wall Decor & a Silhouette Giveaway!!!

Hey, friends!  This month, I’m participating in something really fun: TheSilhouetteChallenge-TTC&Friends There are 35 of us sharing projects today that we made with our Silhouette machines, so get ready to be inspired.  Now, I don’t know about you, but when I decorate for the holidays, I like be festive all over the house!  I have decorations in the living room, the dining room, the basement, the hallway, the kitchen…but the trickiest place to decorate is the bathroom!   Especially our main level powder room, because not only is it, well, a bathroom, it’s also teeny tiny!  There’s barely room in there for everything you need, let alone extras.  In fact, we even have a bit of an issue with where to put the hand towel because of the way things are laid out in there.  So, I decided that if I was going to do any “Christmas-ifying,” it was going to have to happen on the wall.


So, that’s just what I did!  I pulled out my good friend “Cammie” {my beloved Silhouette Cameo” and put her to work making a bit of festive wall decor for my itty bitty powder room.  It was super easy; I had downloaded a “Merry Christmas” design from the Online Store {I believe it may have been a free shape of the week last month}, so all I had to do was open it in my software.  I sized it to be 12″ wide, then sent the design to Cammie to be cut.

silhouettebathroomstep1 Once the cutting was done, I placed transfer paper on top.  This is easy too; you just pull off the backing, and put it sticky-side-down on top of your vinyl.


Then, you peel it off, and the cut design comes off with the transfer paper.  Voilá!  Now, it’s not quite as easy as it sounds because sometimes all the little pieces inside of letters come off too and you have to peel them off by hand, but still…very do-able.


All that’s left to do is stick the whole shebang to the wall wherever you want it, and rub.  The transfer paper has handy-dandy lines on it to help you keep everything straight if you like that sort of thing.  I tend to do more eyeballing than measuring, mostly because I’m impatient, but hey…to each their own.


Then, you just peel off the transfer paper, leaving the vinyl stuck to the wall!  Ta-da!  You may be thinking to yourself, “That’s great, Amy, but what happens when Christmas is over and you have a big holiday thing stuck on your wall?” Simple, friends.  That’s the beautiful thing about adhesive vinyl.  It’s totally removable and won’t damage your wall at all!  {unless you do something weird}  It’ll peel right off like a sticker…in fact, it *may* even pull off nicely enough that you can reuse it again next year!  Super easy, super fun!


You may have noticed that I also added a few branches to my beachy basket.


Special thanks to my {unsuspecting} neighbor across the street for, ahem, “donating” the branches.  You didn’t see anything.


Isn’t it amazing how just a few small touches can totally change the feel of an entire room?  What do you think?

  1. Your powder room definitely looks better with your decorations, and I love that you applied the Vinyl by eyeballing! I do the same thing so glad to know I’m not alone!

  2. Very pretty and festive.
    My vinyl never comes off in a manner that it can be reused, but I think thats all me 😉 You don’t look at all suspicious in that get up and clipping branches LOL

  3. I need to try my hand at applying vinyl right to the wall – I haven’t gotten brave enough to try it! Love your “Merry Christmas” – so sweet!

  4. Ha ha ha! Your incognito photo at the end there was my FAVORITE PART! (I’m such a cheeseball.) And this post is really making me wish our walls weren’t textured so I could do some holiday wall vinyl up in here. Yours looks fantastic, my dear! So elegant!

    Thanks for participating in our December Challenge & Giveaway and helping to make it so special!
