DIY Bunny Wall
Wall decals have been a huge trend recently, and I have to say I’m a big fan! I love that they create a big impact without a lot of effort (are you with me?!). Even better, when you make them out of self-adhesive vinyl, they are completely removable, which makes them perfect for any space, whether it’s a home you own, a rental, or even a dorm room! I’m Abby from Sew Much Ado, and I’m back today sharing a tutorial to make your own Bunny Wall!
I used my Silhouette Cameo to create the gold vinyl bunny stickers, and below you can download the file to make your own stickers!
The options are endless for placement of your stickers. You could do random placement, just a few rows, or the entire wall like I did. I love symmetry so this was an extra satisfying project for me!
Let’s get started!
Wood Crate Bookshelf Supplies:
- Silhouette Cameo
- Self-adhesive Silhouette gold vinyl (matte) – 32 bunnies can be cut from each roll (my 8’x12’ wall needed 64 bunnies total,requiring 2 rolls of vinyl plus a bit of a 3rd for several extra bunnies in case of tearing, etc)
- Silhouette transfer paper – same amount as needed for vinyl
- scraper tool
- measuring tape/yard stick
Measure your wall and determine placement/number of bunnies/vinyl needed for the project. Use level and pencil to mark the placement of bunnies on the wall as desired. I spaced each bunny 18” apart horizontally and 12” apart vertically, offsetting each row from the rows above and below.
Adjust your Silhouette Cameo to load vinyl without a mat. Each roller bar needs to be on top of vinyl to properly feed it through without a mat.
Do a test cut prior to cutting an entire roll of vinyl. I used the default vinyl settings, but needed to decrease the blade setting to 1 for my machine, and it cut the vinyl perfectly. Once settings are correct, cut the amount of bunnies required for your layout.
Remove the “negative” vinyl.
Carefully remove the backing from the transfer paper and apply the sticky side of the transfer paper to the vinyl. I find it helpful to use a long counter or table and tape one end of the vinyl to the counter or table to hold it in place. Use the scraper to remove any creases or bubbles and attach transfer paper to vinyl.
Cut roughly between each bunny.
One at a time, peel away vinyl backing and stick each bunny in place, following markings on the wall (use level to make sure bunnies are placed parallel to the floor). Use scraper firmly over each bunny, and peel away transfer paper.
I did my wall in sections, and found it helpful to place/level a lot of bunnies, then go back and use the scraper and remove the transfer paper.
Great job! You now have a hoppin’ new wall that was easy to make and can be switched up easily when you’re ready for something new!
