DIY Christmas Decals for Your Door

Christmas decals for your doorI’m really all about simple holiday decorating this year.  So when I wanted to make my door a little more festive without going crazy, I decided to make Christmas decals.  You may have seen these before, whether for the holidays or a simple “welcome” that you can leave on year round.

It’s a really quick and easy project that I made using my Cricut machine*.  I opened up the Cricut design space and typed out the words “be merry” using the font called “Monotype Corsiva”.  Then I selected each letter individually to move them closer together.  I did this so that when it’s cut the letters are attached which makes it easier to apply.

Once I had the letters where I wanted them, I selected the group option so that they are welded together for cutting.

I used the white adhesive vinyl, here is what it looks like after cutting and after I removed the backing.

I applied it to the door using the grid paper, just like I did with my chalkboard project.  You could also use these Christmas decals on a mirror or a window.

The white looks pretty against the gray (which is Dark Pewter by Benjamin Moore) door, painting the front door made a huge difference.  I usually leave this wreath up all winter. This exact one isn’t available anymore but you can find similar here.

If you don’t yet have a Cricut machine but love this idea, you can buy some already made here and here.
