Today I thought I would share with you, how I quick and easily added some simple art to my wall. I have been thinking about adding the Swiss cross pattern to the apartment for some time. I wanted it to be a statement piece, but not cover too much either (we live in a 54m2 apartment).
Yesterday I thought of doing it the way that I ended up doing today. This space have been bothering me for some time, and with this pattern it feels more done to me 🙂 – The marble table is a little personal favorite of my DIY’s and I just love how my newest printable – lets stay home, is fitting in perfectly too. Now I just need some shelves or something in the corner 🙂 ( it is never done, ya feel me?)
For this project I used my lovely Silhouette Cameo* and some vinyl – I used some vinyl from scotchcal, but you can use any vinyl that will stick to your wall 🙂 I know a lot of crafters use this one in particular –Oracle 631 *- so that might be worth checking out.
I made the swiss cross in illustrator, exported it as a SVG and then cut it out on my silhouette. I know I could have made the simple design in the silhouette software, but illustrator just speaks to me on another level – I get stuff done much faster in that programme. The whole project took no more than 30 minutes! I love when a project is easy to do and results just like I imaged in my head.
The crosses are cut from one piece of black vinyl measuring 12”x12” and I could fit 21 on my piece. Each cross measures 7×7 cm.
The placement of the pattern is done by eye, but you can also measure it out on your wall, if you want it to be perfectly spaced.
