Looking for a creative way to decorate your child’s bedroom walls in a non-permanent way? Emma and I created these decorations for her and Johnny’s room during a recent mother-daughter date. We used contact paper and Sharpie pens (my most recent craft splurge). I got the idea after researching vinyl wall stickies and seeing that you could create your own using colored contact paper. We only have clear contact paper, so we drew on it and then cut it out to put onto her wall. If you’re worried that your contact paper is too sticky, stick it to some fabric first to add some lint to decrease the stickiness. Just make sure the fabric is close in color to your wall, or the lint will show through. We did this with the first couple of pictures, and then realized that our contact paper wasn’t sticky enough to worry about it.
The fairy photo shows how you can still see the outline of the contact paper on the wall. I think this works fine for fairies since it creates an aura of sorts around them, but you could also solve the problem by cutting out the shapes without leaving any extra contact paper around them.
