Heart Cross Stitch for the Wall

Well, it's almost that time of year.  Valentine's day will be here before we know it.  I decided to make a large cross stitch heart for my wall this year.  I loved last year's Giant Geometric Wall Heart, but it's time for a new take on the symbol of love.

A while ago I can across this gorgeous painted cross stitch flower.  I've been wanting to replicate this in some way in my home, so I took a simple shape, a heart,  and made mine a temporary installment.  I made my crosses with Cricut vinyl (like my triangle wall).  Using two 12x12" sheets of black vinyl, I cut out 27 crosses to make this heart (I fit 16 on each sheet).  It looks totally permanent, but as soon as I tire of it, I can take it down in seconds.

This would be really cute in pink or red as well.  But, I'm sticking with my black and white theme that I had for Christmas.  What do you think?  Is it cute, without being too cutesy and girly?  You know I like a theme, so you'll be seeing more of this cross stitch pattern for Valentine's day 2014!


  1. Aaah, you've done it again! I LOVE it! It's really sweet, without being cutesey, as you said. Black makes everything so chic. :)
