DIY Vinyl Wall Decals

Bold, graphic wall decals have been everywhere the last few years, but I've yet to see a DIYable option (have you? Post it below). Thankfully Danielle Thompson has taken the plunge, and done it up the DIY route.

She writes, "Really, you can create your OWN for much less money and that it's easy!

So I was like, "YES! i can do this MYSELF!" LOL. So I started searching stock photography sites a few weeks ago, found what I wanted, found a local sign shop, emailed my files to them, and picked up the finished product today. And put them up in less than an hour. HIZZAH!!! (can you tell i'm a wee tad excited?) And I'm just so stoked about the outcome. And I'm not actually done, but I wanted to go ahead and take some pics of it in-progress.

I am going to buy bulldog clips (not sure if i'll get colored ones, or just the plain metal... probably plain) and nail them to the wall where 5 picture frames are, and hang an art print from each clip. I've already purchased this, the boy print of this, and this. I also purchased this book in which I'll scan in 2 more images, print them and hang them. I'll leave the remaining smaller picture frames empty b/c i like the look."

*sigh* Sending them to a shop is not DIY.  Will keep looking...

That's what I was trying to figure out.  I thought about tinted vinyl from the fabric store with some sort of spray adhesive on the back.  I know it can be done!!!

ahh now if there was only a way to make them myself without going through a print shop

Now I paid attention and read she DIY'd this but can't get it to come up on Decor8. What material are these made of and how are they hung on the wall. I LOVE this idea.

I had a friend just drop off a catalogue of wall decals she's repping-not nearly as clever as these.
