land of nod art

I found this Love Tree Wall Art on Land of Nod. I have a friend having a baby girl and her nursery is midcentury modern with bright primary colors. 

I thought it be a cute shower gift to make her some modern art for the baby’s nursery. Using 7 different premium vinyl colors from Silhouette I was able to recreate this using my Silhouette Cameo.

Supplies:

  • Silhouette Cameo machine
  • Vinyl
  • Transfer tape
  • MDF board (I cut mine to 15” x 15”)
  • spray primer
  • black spray paint

How To Make the Love Tree

1.  First I cut and sprayed a 15” x 15” piece of MDF with black primer followed by black spray paint.

2.  I designed the tree in the Silhouette software using a heart image from the online store. I filled in all the hearts separately (with the color fill icon) so that I could remove only the colors I wanted to cut out. 

So the first vinyl I cut was the white. I highlighted all the white hearts and the trunk and moved it into the cut area and then proceeded to cut it out.

3.  Then I transferred it to the board. 

Then I would highlight the next colored hearts and move those into the cut area repeating until all the colors of vinyl were cut and transferred onto the board.

Tip:  In order to get it aligned correctly I made sure there was one heart of the previous color cut with the new color.

Then I traced that heart onto the front of the transfer paper. 

Then I removed that heart and was able to use my tracing to line up that heart with the previous cut one.

If you have any hearts that look wonky in the end just remove it carefully to reposition.

  1. Great knock-off and fantastic tip for aligning multiple colours of vinyl, Beckie! Lucky you to have so many beautiful colours to work with 🙂

  2. Cute. Thanks for including a picture in the truncated feed. It is much easier to choose to click when I see what you are doing.

  3. ha ha! hope you didn’t mind me shortening your name…. had an adventure yesterday and lost some blood and was in the er getting stapled back together. i wrote that comment shortly after i got home, so sure i was not totally myself!

  4. So so so cute! I have a question. I have used Silhouette’s vinyl several times and have a real problem getting it to transfer (via transfer tape) onto wood. It just doesn’t still. It doesn’t matter if I’ve painted it, spray painted it or left it as is. Any thoughts? I recently used contact paper as a stencil and sprayed my wood with spray adhesive and that worked. But this is super cute!

  5. What kind of vinyl are you using? Silhouette’s regular or premium? I do not recommend the regular at all. It isn’t very sticky.
