More fun with Cricut Vinyl

This was my bedroom wall.  I adore my hamper basket that Nick bought for me from an Amish man by the way.  But the wall that it sits on was very boring.  After my success with putting our last name on the living room wall, I decided this wall needed something too.  This was easier in ways because I could reach it easier.  But it was a trickier because the letters were a lot smaller and much more intricate in some cases.


After I cut out all my letters, I laid them out in order and figured out which phrase was the longest.  I started out being very mathmatical and finding the center of the wall and all but my artistic side took over and I eyeballed a lot of it.  I did make pencil lines with a ruler to keep the rows straight.  I started from the middle and worked out on each row to try to keep them centered.

This is the finished product.  I ended up moving the top row around a little to center it more after I took the picture.  It's not perfect, but I think it looks pretty good, and it's a lot cheaper then buying these type of things already done for you.  Not to mention is really kind of fun!

Tomorrow I'm planning on working on another project I'm doing, but my husband fell asleep today instead of helping me.  He won't let me play with his power tools unsupervised.


  1. I love it! I'm definitely going to start looking for ways to borrow this now! :)

  2. I LOVE what you did in the bedroom! I was thinking about doing something else in my house also... it is very addicting and so easy once you have the hang of it! Looking forward to watching your summer projects!!!

  3. Thanks girls! I'm happy with it, and Nick likes it too. That's surprising because I did it without telling him. I'm actually surprised he noticed =)
