Want to make sure everyone knows that those headphones are yours? At school, Matthew has to bring headphones so you can imagine how important it is that his headphones have his name on them lest they get mixed up in a pile of 28 other headphones – yikes! But even if you are not in second grade and need headphones for school, you might want to check out this easy way to make personalized headphones with something other than a permanent marker. Do this on your iPad case or portable speakers too. This would also be a great way to pre-customize your Christmas gifts for friends and family this year too! You could include the vinyl in the gift so they can transfer themselves or apply the vinyl to the gift before wrapping.

I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut letters out of vinyl to customize these headphones. I made mine kind of plain, using a font called “Bebas” but you can add flourishes or ivons or anythig you want. That's the beauty of using an electronic cutter! You can cut anything you want…. here's how I did these:


  • Adhesive Vinyl
  • Electronic Cutting System – I used Silhouette Cameo
  • Vinyl Transfer Tape or Packing Tape
  • Headphones
  • Vinyl Weeding Tool (optional)
  • Font – Bebas by dafont.com
