Add Vinyl to Your Gallery Wall

Gallery walls are all over blogland. It seems like they are filling up my feed on Pinterest everyday too. I mean, what isn’t there to love? A bunch of fun picture frames full of pictures and sayings that you can drool over? Well, I did an organization gallery wall in my office last month. You can find it here. I really liked it, but I felt like it needed a little more flair and personality. That is where the vinyl comes in…
Add Vinyl to Your Gallery Wall
I love how it all turned out. The vinyl added just the right amount of color to the space. I love using vinyl for projects like this because it is an easy way to participate in a trend without any major commitments. Right now, arrows are really popular, so I added a bunch of arrows to my gallery wall. This is what it looked like before I added them.
Home Office Organization
It is nice, but I felt like it needed a little something more. To add a little flair to your gallery wall, this is what you need…
*Vinyl cutter
*Shapes to cut out
Sillhouette Studio Arrows
First, I found the shapes that I wanted to use. I got all of my arrows from the Silhouette store. I love all of the different designs that these shapes come with.
Sillhouette Studio Arrow How To
I loaded my arrow images onto the Silhouette Studio. I right clicked on the image with all of the arrows on it and broke apart the image so that I could grab individual arrows.
Vinyl Arrows
I chose two different arrows that I wanted to cut out in red and sized them to the size that I wanted them to be and cut them out. 
Decor Arrows
Next, I moved onto the arrows that I wanted to be gray. I sized them to fit my space and cut them out.
Silhouette Studio Chevron Arrows
Then, I broke apart the chevron arrows to get the arrow I wanted to use. 
Decorating with Arrows
I used it and one of the arrows from the other shape pack for the yellow vinyl. I sized them to the size I needed and cut them out. 
Bright Colorful Gallery Wall
Putting the vinyl on was really easy because there weren’t several layers or anything to work with. I just peeled them off like a sticker and stuck them onto the wall. Nothing too complicated. For the chevron, I already had these cut out and they were in my scrap pile, but they fit in perfectly. 
Blog Office Gallery Wall
I am really happy with how it all turned out! I think my favorite part is my sign that says “I’m kind of a big deal on my blog” with an arrow pointing to a framed business card of mine. 
Adding vinyl to a gallery wall is not only easy, but it is a great way to bring some trend into your space without breaking the bank! To see another way that I added vinyl to a smaller vignette area, check out my baby’s nursery here
