DIY Word Art for Girls

As mentioned in my last post it's been 9 months since we moved to our new home.  My two girls are no longer sharing a room so I have two girly rooms to decorate.  My youngest loves all things glittery gold and pink.  She requested a pink and gold unicorn room.  I'm happy to report that I'm almost done.  There are a few little things I want to do/make but for the most part, it's done.  Since we reused zero of the art/pictures from their shared horse themed bedroom, she needed some new art on her walls.  We browsed through Pinterest to see what I could make.  

She liked these two ideas:

They are sold on Etsy (HERE and HERE), but I knew I could make them cheaper.  Here are my versions:

I used 12 x 16 canvas boards and spray painted them with Krylon "ballet slipper" pink spray paint.  Then I just cut out and applied the vinyl.  I used a bright vinyl sampler pack for the first wall art and a glitter gold vinyl for the second wall art.  I hung them up with Command Strips.  (Amazon affiliate links provided for your convenience in case you want to make these too.  I receive a small commission when you purchase from my site.  Thank you.)


They were pretty easy to make except for the part where my vinyl didn't want to come off the paper backing.  That gold glittery vinyl was a pain to work with.  Other than that, it was a quick and easy way to customize her room.  I'm pleased with how it turned out and can't wait to show you the rest of her room including how I got away with not having to paint her walls pink yet her room still looks pink!
