DIY Removable Wall Quote

This post contains affiliate links for your convenience

A couple of months ago, I shared my new office space in the corner of my living room.  I wanted to personalize the area with a meaningful quote to inspire me as I work.  I had several ideas, but ultimately decided on "Be Brave."  I feel like this speaks to where I am at in life right now.  This year, more than ever I have been stepping out of my comfort zone in both my blog life and professional life, which I have shared with you recently.

I used my Cricut Explore Air and vinyl to create a removable wall quote.  This is great for adding a personal touch to your office, kids room, or even a family room!

Supplies: (aff links)

Cricut Explore Air
Cricut cutting mat
Colored vinyl

Measure the area on your wall to determine what size your letters need to be.  I made mine about 4" tall.  Open the Design Space software and start a new project.  Select the font you want to use.  I kept it simple and used Lucida Calligraphy font on Black vinyl.  But, there are a ton of fonts to choose from, especially if you have Cricut Access.

I actually broke up the words so they would fit on the mat, so I had three pieces of vinyl to cut.

After the vinyl has been cut, carefully weed the letters from the mat.  I applied a piece of painters tape to the wall where I was applying the letters to act as a guide.

If the letters are crooked or not spaced correctly, you can just remove and re-position.  I love how it turned out!

What quote would you put above your desk?

  2. This is so creative! I love the quote that you chose. Not sure what I would go with since the only place I could put this would be in the bathroom or bedroom. (I wish I could put one in my office tho!)
