If you’ve been following my blog for awhile you know that I’m a big fan of polka dots. I put them on just about anything and everything so when I was looking for a way to add them to my new studio space I had just the idea. I wanted to add them to the door! This project is really quick, affordable, and definitely makes a statement!

DIY Polka Dot Door

Time: 30 minutes


Matte white adhesive vinyl
Cutting machine or a circle cutter

I started as I do in most things with a mock up that was to scale in Adobe Illustrator. I do this often before starting projects because it’s a quick way to see if the scale of something is going to work. After doing a mock up with 4″ and 5″ circles I opted to go with 4″ circles. I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut 23, 4″ circles out of a roll of matte white adhesive vinyl. Then I used a tape measure and t-square to align the top and bottom rows. After those were up I found the center of the door and applied the center row of dots. I continues with the second row from the top and bottom, making the dots look like a grid. After the grid is up, then it was easy to add the rows of two dots making them more polka dot and less grid like.
