- Choose your wall
Sounds a fuss, but this first stage is important. Do not be tempted to apply the stickers to a freshly painted wall or to a textured wall as you will not get great results with either.
Ideally, you need a nice smooth wall so that the adhesive on the back of the sticker will adhere to the surface well.
- Prepare your wall
Having chosen your wall, wipe the wall with a damp cloth to ensure that it is dust free, otherwise the stickers will not adhere to the wall well. Dry the wall thoroughly using a clean, dry cloth.
- Decide on your design
Arrange the stickers in the layout that you like best on the floor (use an area similar to the size of the wall) to give you an idea what the finished design will look like.
- Apply your design
Working from left to right in order and carefully measuring the exact position needed for each sticker, very lightly press the stickers into position on the wall.
- Stand back and admire your work!
If you are happy with the results, firmly press the stickers onto the wall, using a dry cloth to smooth them perfectly onto the wall to ensure they are well stuck. When you have finished, carefully check each sticker in turn to ensure that the whole sticker is firmly adhered to the wall – if not, press firmly again using the dry cloth.
