Valentine’s is coming up and love is in the air. Can you feel it? Hiya! It’s Leslie from Pink Stripey Socks. We recently took down our Christmas decorations and I’ll admit, I felt sad seeing our bare walls. I wanted to spruce them up for Valentine’s Day, but didn’t want to spend a fortune (or my entire weekend) doing so. Luckily, I had leftover red contact paper from a DIY Toadstool Chair Project. So I used it to make quick and easy Heart DIY wall decals. Then, I stuck a whole bunch onto our living room wall to make a fun (and temporary) Valentine’s Day themed accent wall!
Here are the Materials I used:
- Red Contact Paper
- Scrap Paper
- Masking Tape
- Optional: Measuring Tape and Level
Step 1: Cut out a heart template.
Not going to lie, this was the hardest and most time consuming part. I wanted an orderly design that spanned the entire wall. But, I’m not a patient crafter. Hubby and I started off using a measuring tape and level to figure out where to put each heart. Ehh…. It took awhile to make sure the measurements were correct. So after we marked a couple of spots with masking tape, I ended up just eyeballing the rest. That’s why my pieces of tape aren’t exactly in straight lines. But I don’t mind one bit. (If you’re a precise kinda crafter, then by all means measure away!)
Step 3: Trace your heart template onto the back of your contact paper. Then, cut out a ton of hearts. (I cut out 39!)
Happy making, friends!
