I am totally loving gallery walls, showing pictures of great memories, lovely paintings or good quotes. Since I already made a lot of cute accessories, I decided it was time for some nice wall decoration.
What you will be needing
- Nice quote or image
- (Colored) paper
- A cutter
- Colorful background (for example Lola oilcloth or adhesive foil)
Because I couldn’t choose, I made two designs. Lately I am very much into deer-head so I immediately fell in love with the design below. In Word, I drew up a layout with matching text. You have to make sure your quote isn’t too long and the font isn’t too tiny because there is a lot of precise cutting work. It will save you a lot of work 😉
When printed, I cut out the black parts and put the stencil on a black paper. With a white pencil, I colored the empty spaces so it was clear which parts I had to cut out afterwards.
My kitchen is for disco
This quote is so me! I just love singing and dancing while cooking. Because I had a lot of (double) work on the deer-design, I changed my tactic. I inverted colors, so I had white text on a black background. Now I only had to cut once and the result is the same! Make sure you change Word-settings in order to print the background.
Once everything was cut out, I used glue stick to glue the paper to the oilcloth. As an extra, I added a golden detail to the kitchen-design. (I kept this coffee package already a long time ago because ‘one day, it might be useful’)
Now your cut-out-quote is ready to be framed!
