Have you ever wondered about layering vinyl decals?! It’s easier than you think! Layer right onto the transfer tape to make things way easier when you go to place your decal. I’ve been on a kick of adding decals to all the cars in my family and my grandma requested a cardinal, which looked better in layers. Today I’m going to walk you through Layering Vinyl Decals!
The reason you want to use layering is so that you can put the decal on in one shot instead of trying to build layers onto your project. Sometimes it’s easier to attach a decal in one shot, such as when you’re putting on a car decal. This isn’t hard – you can do this!

Layering Vinyl Decals Video Instructions
I made a quick video to walk you through how I do this – it’s only a couple of minutes long, so enjoy! I also have written instructions down below if you prefer that.
Layering Vinyl Decals Tutorial
- cut the various layers of your decal out of various colors of vinyl
- starting with the TOP layer, build your layers
- layer until you have all the layers built onto the lower layer
- when you attach your decal, peel off the backing sheet and attach to your project. All the layers will go on at once.
For example, here I started with the beak and eyes, adding them to the mask. Then I added the mask to the main body. Then I added the wing and feet to the main body. Then ALL the layers were on the main body and I could transfer the entire decal at once.
