Lovin’ me some Chevron!

Published November 17, 2011 by sweetcraftastrophe

Hey there dolls!

So lately, my current obsession has been the Chevron print! Ah I just adore it to pieces! It’s so fun, simple and chic as well as absolutely pretty! I’ve been scouring pinterest and we heart it to find all the BEST chevron prints! Why you ask? Well because there’s no way you can look at these prints without using them!

 Just take a look at these fabulous ways to use this print! I’m so excited to share today’s craft with you not only because it involves Chevron prints but also because crafting is such a relaxing way to spend your evening.
My favorite idea for this print is making mini treat bags, they’re just so freaking cute! I think I know what my birthday party guests will be getting in January!
Yes, this is for a child’s room but its extremely versatile and that’s one thing I look for if I have to buy or make something for any occasion. 
Have you fallen in love with this as much as I have?! I can’t wait to see what else you decide to create with this!
I just couldn’t help myself! It’s an obsession like I told you and I’ve just fallen in love with this print which is a curse and blessing. I’ll probably be changing my phone wallpaper and the desktop screen to chevron as well. But hey, who could blame me? It’s just pure awesomeness!
Ok so enough chit chat, it’s time to get to the crafts! My fav part of the week is as always crafting lovely things and sharing them with you!

Chevron Crafted Letters

This is very simple to make and only takes a few hours with drying time included.
Here’s my first freebie printable  {Download here}

You will need:

  • Wood craft letters (from any craft store like Michaels, Jo-Anns, Hobby Lobby etc..)
  • Tacky glue
  • Pencil
  • Cardstock (white)
  • Scissors or X-Acto 
  • Ruler

 Directions

  1. Lay out all your materials
  2. Print off your chevron print in any color of your choosing
  3. Lay the non-printed (white) side facing you and place your wood letter on top
  4. Then, take your pencil and just trace around your letter a few times so the line is clearly visible
  5. Once that’s done start cutting around the traced lines
  6. Take your print and lay it on top of your letter to make sure that everything lines up exactly
  7. Alright, now you can glue down the print and hold firmly for about 10 seconds.  **Tip: Take a textbook or dictionary and place it on top of your letter for 10 seconds to secure it firmly.**
  8. After you’ve finished that let it dry for a day and then you’re ready to hang it up on your wall.

Send me some of your pictures of your fantastic new Chevron inspired wall art! I would love to show off my viewers’ creativity!

Have a sweet day!
