Vinyl Decals on Glass in Frames, Photo Wall


Before I left for Creative Estates this last week, I decided to put some finishing touches on a few small frames that we are using in our family room photo wall collage.
I know it's taking FOREVER to reveal, but I have ONE more project after this to finish, and then the photo wall will be complete! :)

All I did was take these three small IKEA frames and back them with paper that coordinated with my photo wall.



Then I designed some vinyl for each frame, and placed them on the glass!




Um... yep.  Easy as that! haha!
I know it's not a "huge" step in the big picture, but I knew someone was going to ask me about it, so I thought I would just post the process as I went along.

I cut these decals out on my Silhouette, in white matte vinyl.
I used the fonts:
Disco
Modern No. 20
Adobe Woodtype Ornaments

  1. I agree. The five is kind of odd. I think it's that the bottom of the five looks like a fish. Other than that, I think the concept is great!

  2. I love it! And I like the font on the 5, but I think I would make it a smidge smaller. I need a little more space around the edges.

  33. Love it, but have a question: how do you keep the mirror in the frame, are the metal tabs enough to keep in it place???
    Thanks!

  34. Very cute! I'm with you on the "5," though. Maybe it's because the curve of the 5 resembles a fish?
