How To Make Your Own DIY Wall Decals
DIY Wall Decals Made From Scrapbook Paper
DIY wall decalsÂ made from scrapbook paper and contact paper. Peel and stick, removable, and perfect for kids rooms! Create any phrase or shapes youâ€™d like!
- Scrapbooking Paper
- Contact Paper
- Mod Podge (or spray adhesive)
- Foam Brush
Brush a layer of mod podge onto the top of a piece of contact paper, then place a sheet of paper on top of that.
Press down firmly and get rid of the air bubbles. Place under a board or something heavy to keep it flat while drying.
Once the sheets have dried, they are ready to be cut!
You can use a cricut or stencils to cut into desired shapes.
Note: I haven’t tried spray adhesive, but would imagine that it would work just fine as an alternative method. Just spray and place a board over until set.
I noticed a few of my corners and edges coming off of the contact paper when I went to peel the backings off. I guess the mod podge wasn’t thick enough in those areas. I just added a little tacky glue to fix the small spots and they were good to go.
Custom peel and stick letters that are nice and sturdy, easy to place onto a wall, reposition-able, and inexpensive!
And these aren’t limited to lettering! The possibilities are endless especially with the huge variety of cricut cartridges. You can make all sorts of custom scenes for your wall.
Our basement is brighter lit than most basements, but it is still hard to take a good picture down there. You get the idea.
