A lot of craft projects contain vinyl letter decals. I really like them, but I don’t want to pay a lot of money for them. I always find it very strange that the vinyl letters are quite expensive compared to the big sheets. Besides that it’s nice to be able to choose from all the free fonts the web has to offer instead of just a few basic ones. I thought I could make them myself. This really is a super easy project but with great impact!

How to make these DIY vinyl letter decals
Cut your vinyl in a size that is small enough for your printer. You can use the standard letter or A4 size if you like. Open paint on your computer. Choose a font in paint and spell the text for your vinyl letter decals. Use a large size for the letters. Click ‘rotate’ and then ‘flip horizontally’. Now your letters will be mirrored. Select the whole image (ctrl + a) and copy (ctrl + c). Now open Word and paste the image inside your document (ctrl + v). Right click the image and choose ‘wrap text’, ‘in front of text’. Now you will be able to move the image in your document. Scale the image and move it until your letters have the size you want and fit the paper. If they don’t fit the paper you could use more than one sheet of vinyl. Print the letters on the back of your sheet of vinyl. Cut out and your vinyl letter decals are ready to use in your next project!
