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.
