New Thing #59: Vinyl Wall Art from Surface Collective


My wife and I have been talking about getting some vinyl wall art for the house for literally years now. When a Groupon popped up from Surface Collective we snatched it up and ordered these origami cranes. 

4 1/2 hours, zero dinners and one dead iPhone battery later, I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. Unfortunately I lost most of the stop motion video when the power drained out of my phone, so you’re really only seeing the fun part of the whole thing.

You can’t CTRL-Z wall layouts so there was a lot of taping and repositioning of cranes before I decided on the design you see in the video. Plus I ended up with thirteen on the wall before Shauna made me add one more to keep our ceiling fan from decapitating us in the night this summer.

    Hey Dan! Great article and video, it’s inspiring to see our product among the #365 new things and be rated as totally rad. Although 4 and a half hours sounds like a long time i hope it wasn’t too painful and you are happy with end results đŸ™‚
