    If you want just to make a simple decal, use VTFEdit, just 4 easy steps.
    1. Make your decal in whatever you are using, make sure it has transparent background, not white, save it as .png.

    2. Open VTFEdit, click on "File => Import". Click Ok.

    3. Save it to "[your Steam folder]\steamapps\common\Team Fortress 2\tf\materials\decal_example"

    4. Then click on "Tools => Generate VMT File", make sure "Translucent" is checked on and save it to the same folder.

    Here it is!
