Craft Wall Redo

I am so excited to share this with you guys.  I have been wanting to redo my wall behind my craft area and finally got around to working on that yesterday.  I love how it turned out and it only took yesterday afternoon for me and my hubby to finish all of the canvases and get them hung. 

For the middle sign, I used a piece of 20x30 foam board and some large wall stickers for the letters.  We used a ruler to measure out where the letters should go and line them up.  I love the Keep Calm and Carry On signs you can buy, and I really wanted to make my own for the craft room, so I went with: Keep Calm and Craft On.

For the images on the sides, we started out with four white canvases (2 that are 16x20 and 2 that are 12x12).  These were spray painted black to begin with.  Then I used white vinyl for the images. (Just a tip, be sure to use a brayer or bone folder over the images on the vinyl to make them secure on the canvas.  This helps because of the texture of the canvases.)  Here are the details on those cuts:

Scissors - Simply Charmed Cricut Cartridge cut at a size of 10.21w x 16.18h
Sewing Machine - Nifty Fifties Cricut Cartridge cut at a size of 15.31w x 10.18h
Glue - Simply Charmed Cricut Cartridge cut at a size of 10.51w x 9.50h
Needle - SVG file from Shery K Designs cut at a size of 13.9w x 1.79h
