Peel-n-Stick Letters and Numbers

This post has E-A-S-Y written all over it. Well, not exactly. It actually has a *C* and an *A* and the letters B-O-X and a number of numbers written all over it, but you will see what I mean about the easy part the further you read.

I came across these cool black vinyl letters and numbers in varying sizes at a closeout store recently. And at a price of only $1.69 a pack, how could I go wrong?

These slick beauties do a lovely job reminding me when a box is a box...

...and add numerical flair to my otherwise plain white vintage doorknob.

But what I appreciate most is their Grade A performance on my ironstone.

So all that is needed to update an array of vintage collectibles, is a nice dose of alpha-numeric peel-n-stick stickies! How easy is that!

I guarantee, if you decide to attempt this project, you won't be stuck on it for long. Please come back and share your results with us!


  1. I love these, Candy! Black graphics on white look great! I want to try it!

  2. This is easy as A - B - C! Sorry, I couldn't resist!! I love anything with letters and numbers so this is a perfect little project for me. My favorite is the doorknob.

  3. Very clever...I've been painting letters - monograms - and that can be a time consuming and sometimes messy process. This is very crisp and neat...and changeable. Thanks for the tip.

  4. C-A-N-D-Y - U - R the best! :)

    Very cool...


  5. Thank you so much for passing that simple idea on. I have wooden letters all over, now I can put them on my plates without painting them. I love all the pictures.

  6. I LOVE YOUR BLOG!, those letteres-numbers are too cool-I want some..Im going to be on a mission today to go find them.. Sometimes those simple things are the most elegant or that bit of vintage style.Dont know why but just is. LOVE it.Just became a follower of you-Can't wait to see more of what you do..LOve the Inspiration

  7. These simple projects are AMAZING....and it's a sticker? My kids could do that!! I heart them all!

  8. Lovely! I got some similar stickers at Wal-mart a while back. :)


  9. I love these! I wonder where I can find some? Looks so Pottery Barn-ish.

  10. oooohh candy,
    i bought some of these a while ago....but life has been so busy that my brain hasn't had time to "think creatively" thanks for the help! i love your monochromatic style of decorating too.

  12. Oh good because I'm always forgetting what's a box and what's not ;) these are cute, thanks for posting!

  13. I just love words, numbers, graphics and you do it so well! Lezlee

  14. They are available at Michael's but they are NOT 1.69. More like $8.00! GREAT BUY! They do come in white, gold and black and various sizes and fonts, though. So if you want to splurge a little they are great to use for lots of things. You can put them on a painted surface and they will peal off and leave no residue. I used them a LOT at Christmas to put cute sayings on the walls.

  15. Simple you say, elegant I'd say. What awesome results you've obtained with a creative idea. The black letters just really pop amongst the white and really add alot to the overall look of the cabinet. Love it! I'll be searching now.

  16. Wonderful!!!! I happen to have some of these vinyl stickers! I can't wait to put them to good use! Thanks for sharing - - - a most original idea!

  17. what a great idea! and an easy one too...i will most definitely be trying this!
