We moved the girls into a shared bedroom right before Sloane turned one and have slowly been putting their room together. I knew I wanted an earthy, boho feel for their bedroom. I found this art work at Hobby Lobby and fell in love with the colors. I even used them as inspiration for Sloane’s birthday party decor, so I could reuse some of it in their bedroom after. I really wanted to add boho rainbows to one of their walls. I decided I wanted to try making my own removable vinyl decals with my Cricut Maker. Using removable vinyl made this Cricut project SO easy! And I love that I had full control over the look, size, and colors of the rainbows. Keep on reading for my step-by-step guide to creating boho rainbow wall decals for a bedroom.
The girls have dark gray walls in their room, so I started by painting the “decal wall” a super light grey, almost white, color so the vinyl decals would really pop. I uploaded a picture of their wall into Canva and used a rainbow sticker to play around until I found a layout I liked.
- Cricut Maker: I used the Maker machine to make the majority of the decals 10″ x 10.” There are also some smaller decals on the wall (next to and under the window) that are roughly 8″ x 8″.
- Removable Vinyl: I chose to use removable vinyl so I could easily move the pieces if needed. Cricut’s removable vinyl can be removed without damage for up to two years. (Their permanent vinyl lasts up to three years.) I will say I have tried other removable vinyl and it removed tiny bits of paint from the wall behind it. The Cricut vinyl did not.
- Transfer Tape
- Light Grip Mat
- Scraper & Spatula
- Find your rainbow and put it into Design Space. I used one that I found for free in Canva. Here is a link to my Cricut Design Space project if you like this exact rainbow.
- Cut. I found it easiest to cut an entire rainbow at a time. I then used my tool to remove one piece of rainbow from the backing and placed it face-down onto the transfer tape. I laid out multiple pieces of transfer tape so I could create 3 rainbows at a time. Once I did a few, I did start laying them down on the backing from my first few rainbows, then used the transfer tape like you normally would.
- Place transfer tape rainbows on wall. I found it easiest to do 3-4 rainbows at a time. I could lightly stick the transfer tape to the wall, then I could back up to see how it looked. With the removable vinyl, it was very easy to peel a rainbow from the wall to move it if I decided I wasn’t centered, or wanted a different color there, etc.
Total Time: 3 hours cutting + 2 hours hanging
Total Cost: $35
Would you be willing to try boho rainbow wall decals for a bedroom?
I’ll admit I was a bit intimated since it’s an entire wall… but it was so much easier than I imagined. Knowing the removable vinyl is so easy to remove and move (if needed) made it a perfect project for a beginner crafter like myself.
