Homemade Wall Decals

31 Oct

After putting up new wallpaper in the nursery, the walls were looking rather bare. I was quite keen on wall decals but didn’t want to pay upwards of $100 to buy some. I found on a forum somewhere that people had used Contact paper (a self-adhesive lining paper, kind of like duraseal, but for lining shelves and stuff) with varying success. A trip to the local Mitre 10 and $20 later, I came back with 1 roll of white paper and 1 roll of black paper. Here are a few of the decals I made from these. I bought a set of craft knives for cutting these out. The pukekos are actually hand-painted onto the white contact paper, then sprayed over with a gloss fixative.
