10 Vinyl Projects

vinyl projects

Years ago I purchased a professional vinyl machine and had a blast creating vinyl projects for family, friends and customers. It has been a few years since I closed up shop and began blogging full-time, but I still use my vinyl machine and supplies in plenty of projects. Here are 10 vinyl projects I’ve made over the years.

1. Family Home Evening Frame

I’ve been meaning to make one of these for my family for a while now, but I didn’t want a HUGE board hung on my wall. I needed it to serve a purpose, but not serve as a focal point. I grabbed an 8×10 frame that I already had laying around and I cut some vinyl in mirror image so I can put it on the inside of the glass. Now I can use a dry erase marker to put our initials in the squares (we rotate tasks every week) and it wipes off nice and clean.

2. Let’s Celebrate Board

This Celebration Board has been a lot of fun in our home. Its our family’s place to write any reason at all to celebrate for the day. It just makes me smile looking at some of the reasons my kids come up with!

2 file-box

3. School Days File Box

How do you organize your kid’s school papers? This idea is a favorite of mine- and I can’t take the credit for it as I saw it first from my sister in law. But it is the system we have been using for years now and it is brilliant!

4. Primary Song Wall Vinyl

My daughter’s favorite primary song when she was little was Popcorn Popping, so I thought it was both appropriate and adorable to use the words to that song as a project for her room.

5. Nursery Wall Boarder

In my son’s nursery, I added a fun wall border by overlapping two sizes and colors of circles.

6. Nursery Name

In that same nursery, I also added his name in circles above his crib.

7. Quote on the Wall

I added my favorite quote from President Hinckley to the wall at the top of my stairs.


8. Dry Erase Glass Calendar

This dry erase calendar is one of the most popular projects I’ve ever shared on Somewhat Simple!

9. Magnetic Chore Charts

This is how I get my kids to work around the house! Magnetic Chore Charts are the best! We have been using these chore charts for over a year now and my kids still enjoy using their magnets to show me what they have done!
