Today’s post is from my most Irish friend, Kelly of Cloudy Day Gray. It would be fun to surprise your family with a similar wall on St Patrick’s Day.
You should know by now that Melanie is a fan of wallpaper. So it makes sense that a little over four years ago, she sent me a picture of a European home decked out in clover wallpaper with the caption, “Kelly, you have to have this.” I quickly promised her I would, as soon as we bought our first home. But as life goes, we are still renting and my hope of an amazing clover-covered wall was still so far away.
That is until I got the Cricut Explore, which inspired me to create my own easy to remove wallpaper. Here is how you can make your own.
Materials: Cricut Explore, re-positionable vinyl, painter’s tape.
Project: After uploading a clover design into the Cricut Design Space, I placed the vinyl onto the cutting mat, and pressed Go. I found the center of my wall, and marked it with tape, working from the center into each section using a smaller piece of painter’s tape as my guide.
Time: Cutting took a total of 30 minutes, which made 400 clovers from 15 feet of vinyl. Putting the clovers on the wall took three hours.
Make your house a home and surround yourself with things that make you smile. I am never taking this down. Well, not until we move anyway.
