Vinyl wall art is a booming trend in the home design world, especially for those who want to add colour and interest to their walls without causing any damage. If you like to create your own vinyl wall art designs, you might consider selling your art at craft fairs, at online homemade goods shops or even to local vendors. This craft can bring in a good profit because the materials are relatively inexpensive but the end result can be sold for a premium amount.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Decide on the design you want to create. Some popular vinyl wall art choices are words and phrases such as poems or popular quotes, animals, flowers, butterflies and landscapes. You can sketch out your pattern by hand or find a picture online that you would like to duplicate. If this is your first vinyl project, start small and work your way up to larger projects.

  2. 2

    Transfer your chosen design onto a sheet of vinyl. If you are drawing a design by hand, write with a marker directly onto the material. You could also use stencils or tracing paper to create your design. If you want to make a large design from a small pattern, use a projector to make your pattern the correct size to trace.

  3. 3

    Save a copy of your pattern to use for multiple projects. If you plan on selling these vinyl wall clings, you will need a traceable pattern that you can use again and again to create many different vinyl wall art clings.

  4. 4

    Cut out your design with a craft knife. Cut slowly and as precisely as possible around curved edges and interior corners. If you have a few minor imperfections it's not a problem, but try to make your lines as crisp and even as possible. Do not remove the adhesive backing from the piece of vinyl.

  5. 5

    Package your vinyl as desired. If you plan on selling your vinyl wall art at craft sales, it is a good idea to slip your vinyl sheets into a manila envelope. Feature a picture of the design on the cover and any decorative materials you want to use. Slip instructions for using the vinyl into the packaging for ease of the buyer.
