DIY How To Use Watercolor Clip Art to Make Watercolor Flower Wall Decals

So, it should come as no surprise that I love flowers… and all things watercolor. My clip art is largely comprised of watercolor flowers and embellishments.

When a customer emailed to let me know of a project she had just completed for her daughter’s room… I was smitten! And naturally, I thought to my little self… I must make this. So, I did. Here’s the finished product:


Here are the supplies I used:

  • Printable Vinyl. Got mine on Amazon. It is the Cricut brand, but I used it with my Silhouette Cameo machine with no issues. It’s waterproof but not hard scratch proof.
  • A basic inkjet printer. I used this one which is the one I own. You can use any old inkjet printer with the printable vinyl.
  • A Silhouette Cameo Machine. *Optional.* I splurged and got one on sale at Christmas. You can cut the flowers out by hand but if you’re doing a full wall like I did then this with be a time-consuming process. You’ll need to find some software to arrange the flowers then print them. Photoshop, Picmonkey, Canva, and Silhouette Studio (Used below) will do the trick.
  • Any watercolor flower clip art you fancy. I have various watercolor clip art sets available. If you don’t like my style, there are also plenty of watercolor clip art flowers available on Creative Market. I’ll show you how to easily arrange them in the free software, Silhouette Studio below.
  • And adorable, 3 year old helper. *Also optional.* She said… “Mom, stop moving these after I put them where I want them!” Oops. What can I say? I may be a #perfectionist. Oy!

Basic Instructions:

1. Arrange your watercolor flower clip art in Silhouette Studio. I just printed all leaves and flowers separately. You can certainly make groups of flowers with leaves, but keep in mind that the more complex the flower arrangement, the trickier it will be to cut out. See video of how I arranged them and prepare them for cutting with the Silhouette Cameo below.

2. After you arrange them, send them to your inkjet printer to print. Make sure you know what side your printer prints on so that you don’t ruin your vinyl. I had to place mine vinyl side down.

3. Cut, cut baby. Simply cut out the printed vinyl flowers. For me, it was as simple as placing the vinyl on the cutting mat and sending it to my silhouette machine to cut. For tutorials on how to cut with your Silhouette machine, I enjoy the Silhouette School blog. I already had the registration marks printed so that my Silhouette machine knew exactly where to cut.

4. Peel, Arrange, and stick those cute vinyl flowers on the wall. Now, I didn’t have much of a method to my madness. I just tried to space out the flowers evenly and distribute them so that the pattern wasn’t too matchy, matchy. I also grouped various flowers with leaves.  The good news is that if you don’t like the flower placement, you can always lift and re-stick the flowers. I did this several times and even though the wall was textured they still stuck. Obviously you don’t want to do this too much though.

And viola. The finished product! We love it and the good news is that it’s something that will be super easy to take down when we’re tired of it.

  1. This is amazing! I want to do this for my nursery, but don’t have a silhouette machine. Could I cut by hand? If not with scissors, is there a specific tool you would recommend?

  2. Hi, this might sound like a really stupid question but I’m just starting out and I’m wondering, when does cricut print the design you choose while it cuts it at the same time or you have to print on vinyl first and then put the sheet into cricut for cutting? Sorry it’s just super confusing. Thanks 😊
