Chic decals, minimal effort, stunning impact!
This is probably the easiest tutorial out there you can get to make wall decals!
Great replacement for stencils since these are no-mess easy peel plus, the customizations are endless!
This tut of course doesn't mean you have to make a jewelry niche too, headboard decals are the thing I say but I have a pretty su-weet headboard already. The best bet would be doing this under a shelf (or on the top of it). Also consider hanging a grand oval mirror over your vanity and having the decal as the frame of the mirror. Endless options I tell ya.
The time required depends upon the intricacy of your pattern but typically one hour is the middle ground.

  • How to make a wall decal. Diy Wall Decals! - Step 1
    Step 1

    Start by printing out a template of your design. Make sure you print it out the right size. My damask corner patterns are about half of an A4 sheet (just so that you get the idea).

    Cut out the adhesive sheet to be double the area of your template and slightly larger and fold it in half.

    Tape all the edges of your pattern onto the folded adhesive sheet so everything is tightly secure in place and won't move when you're cutting out the pattern.

    Step 3

    Using a craft knife and the different sized scissors, cut the pattern out. A good tip is to not start out with a too complicated pattern.
    Here's the two damask corners for each side of my "shelf" decal.

    I then cut out a long strip and two smaller ones (for the damask corners) measuring the width of the wall/space I wanted to put my decal on. This long strip was supposed to go on top of the damask corners.

    Use a ruler (or probably the leveling app on your Iphone,lol) to make sure you have the alignment right when you place the decal. Peel off and smooth it onto the surface. Since it comes off mess free, even if you have those annoying 'wrinkles' you can peel it back off and smooth it over again.

    As you see mine is fashioned liked a little jewelry alcove; so I used transparent command hooks to hang in pretty jewelry.
