Using the printables

Print out the design you like and measure how big you want it on your wall.

Divide the desired width by the actual width on the printout. ie. If you want your frame 45cm wide and the printout is 15cm wide, 3 is your magic number

Measure the size of the grid squares on your printout, multiple it by your magic number and draw squares on your wall that size. ie. If the squares on your print out are 2cm, and your magic number is 3, you need to draw the grid on your wall 6cm wide.

Using the squares as your guide, draw out the design on your wall and it will be the size you want it.

NB. Use a plumb bob or spirit level to make sure your grid is level and sketch in pencil. Go over your design in pen or paint and once that is dry, you can remove the pencil grid with a damp cloth
