Vinyl Project #4: Custom Glasses
Whether it’s a regular drinking glass or something a bit fancier like a wine glass, vinyls work on them too! Create decorative ones like what we did below or customize them into a “his” and “hers” pair.
Vinyl Project #5: Paint Stencils
If you’re planning to paint on your walls or on any surface, you’ll know that freehanding some details can take time or may also be too tricky. You can use vinyls as stencils like we did for these decorative blocks.
Vinyl Project #6: Signage and Decor
Saving the biggest project for last! Vinyl are not only waterproof and washable but they’re also pretty durable! You can even use them as store and cafe signages (on the walls, surfaces or display windows) like this project we did for Black Scoop Cafe in Tomas Morato. We also used the vinyl as stencil to paint the menu (text) on the wall. Check out this video for a quick preview on how that went out.
