DIY Fall Home Decor with Adhesive Vinyl

DIY Fall Home Decor with Adhesive Vinyl

Looking for a quick, easy, fall home décor project that you can make yourself with adhesive vinyl and your Silhouette? I have the solution. Recognize these letters? I used to stop in every local craft store to grab a few for decoration. They are cute by themselves but adding a little detail takes it to a whole other level. Thank goodness “FALL” is only 4 letters because I definitely picked some meticulous designs ;)

I purchased my letters on Amazon to save myself a trip to the local craft store, but Hobby Lobby, Michaels, AC Moore, and even Walmart should stock these letters year-round. 

Here are a few other materials to collect:

Honestly, the hardest part of this project was confirming what fall related objects to use. After much deliberation, I went with leaves, buttons, acorns, and pumpkins.  One by one I copied and pasted my icons to create a pattern in silhouette. I then went through and re-sized to create a proportional pattern by dragging the corner tool outwards.

From there, I needed to create two layers so that I could add depth to my design. I right clicked and released my compound path which then separated all my lines within the object. I selected the outer border of these shapes and dragged them to the side of the mat so that they wouldn’t be cut.

To cut the OraCal 651, I had my blade at 1, the speed at 8, and thickness at 9. I alternated cutting the same pattern with a variety of colors so that at the end I had lots of options for shapes and sizes. I moved this design to the side of my mat and then dragged my borders back on, this way I could cut them all with black.

 I now had the body of all my shapes out of assorted colors as well as the black borders that I would now layer. I applied the transfer tape over my black outlines first using my squeegee tool to apply pressure, once it released from my carrier sheet I applied it on top of the colored shape. Now that I had the full image on my transfer tape I started applying to the paper Mache letters individually. I just eye balled the placement of each shape so that there was an even amount of negative space throughout.
