MAKE YOUR OWN EMOJI HEART BACKDROP
I am so excited to share today’s DIY with you! You might recognise these hearts from our Emoji Heart Ice Bucket, but they are just so darn cute, I couldn’t help but turn them into a backdrop too because ‘why not?’, it’s Valentines!
I had this idea after sharing our fave backdrop ideas a couple of weeks back, as it suddenly occurred to me that we hadn’t really done a whole load of backdrop DIY’s here at Bespoke Bride, which is insane when you consider how expensive backdrops can be? So I am now determined to come up with a whole load of new backdrop ideas over the coming months and this is the first of many cute and budget friendly ideas!
As with the ice bucket this DIY uses vinyl which means it won’t leave any sticky marks or residue on your walls – great if you’re venue isn’t keen on the idea of using any kinds of adhesive. Plus the vinyl is really sturdy and will be sure to stay up for as long as your need. I created this statement wall in my office last week and I still have it up as it is just too cute to take down! So whether your want a temporary backdrop or a more permanent installation for your home, this DIY is for you.
YOU WILL NEED
Upload the heart templates to the Cricut Design Space and resize to the size you want, I made mine in two sizes which were 10.5 inches and 7.5 inches , then I adjusted the size of the yellow sparkles to match. You’ll then want to duplicate the shapes as many times as you require to cover your wall.
Place your ‘Flamingo’ vinyl onto your sticky mat and load into the machine, set your Cricut to cut vinyl and press ‘go’!
Once your machine has finished cutting out all of the pink hearts, repeat step two with your yellow vinyl and allow it to cut out all of the sparkles.
Remove your hearts from the mat and adhere to the wall. I didn’t use any transfer tape for this DIY, as the shapes were large I felt confident enough to do it without but, if you would prefer a little more precision check out the Emoji Heart Ice Bucket tutorial for more details.
Repeat with all of your hearts until your wall is covered!
This is definitely giving us heart eyes!
