No Fuss DIY Fabric Decals

Pin it button

Melanie scored a one-two punch with her diy fabric decals which renters in modest-sized apartments can especially appreciate. First, she used them to visually define space in her daughter's "room within a room" (in her case their entryway) and her no-starch method makes them easy going up and coming down (i.e. no blemishes on the wall for renters to worry about).

Like many before her Melanie first tried using liquid starch to adhere her decals to the wall. She found it messy and not effective for the large-scale giraffe she had in mind (not to mention that her daughter could peel them off). After spending a long time at the drawing board she devised a method that is easy (even for people who don't consider themselves "crafty"), effective, and totally removable. Here's a hint: it might gain you entrance to the Extreme Ironing Bureau.
