Hanging the Laundry


I LOVE that my laundry room has a door that I can close to hide my laundry piles!  Although, I’m now dreaming of a laundry room that is large enough to do all of the folding and of course, decorate!  For now, I’ll settle for decorating the laundry room door!


Awhile back I fell in love with this vinyl decal from Right on the Walls!  Love it, but not the $39.95 price.  I knew I could make my own with some of my favorite tools: Cricut, Sure Cuts A Lot 2 software, and vinyl from Expressions Vinyl.


To make your own, start out by cutting out your vinyl in a variety of fonts.  After you have weeded your vinyl, apply transfer tape.  I LOVE the 6” roll of paper transfer tape because it is so easy to work with.  I just tear different pieces to cover the vinyl I’m working with.  Apply this vinyl to your surface.


Now cut out your clothespins.  I originally wanted a clothespin for each letter like the example I was following, but it seemed a little busy after I put it up.  So, I changed it so that there is a clothespin on every other letter.


Here is what it looked like with clothespins on every letter.


And with just a few clips.  I’m still on the fence…should I keep all of the clips or keep it simple?

This is great! I like the one with all the clips, but they are both fab!

That is so stinkin' cute! At first I liked the one with less, but now I can't decide. Maybe five?

Very cute! I'm going to have to try vinyl. I like the one with less clips. It's perfect.
