I'm phoning it in today, dredging up an old post, but it's one of my favorite finished projects! When we started decorating the new apartment, this was one of the first pieces I unpacked.
I've always been a renter of various and sundry teensy apartments, which I'm sure you all know seriously limits you decor options. I've gotten creative over the years, and one of my favorite ways to spice up a rental is with removable vinyl wall decals. They can be pretty costly though, which is half the reason I got a Silhouette cutting machine. Now I can cut anything I want out of vinyl. Follow along with me to learn how to make fun geometric diamond decals. You could use them to embellish and object like I did with our record player, or you could space them out on a wall like wallpaper!
This tutorial will teach you how to make the shapes from scratch, but since I love you guys so much, I've also created a downloadable cut file so that you can make the exact ones I did if you'd like. To download all these diamonds ready-to-cut, just go like Shrimp Salad Circus on Facebook and then click the 'freebies' tab on the left sidebar.
*Note: I know I'm a little spoiled with my fancy craft toy, but you could actually just get the vinyl, trace a design onto it, and cut it out with an exacto knife if you don't have a cutting machine. :D
