You only need a few supplies to make these metallic removable wall decals – and you can paint them any color of your choice! These gold wall decals are VERY easy to make.
Skills Required: None. You don’t any prior crafting skills to make this wall decor. I do recommend thin layers of spray paint if you’ve never used it before, to avoid drips.
One of my biggest pet peeves is wasting craft supplies. Not like it happens on purpose but it really drives me crazy when I have extras of something and yet no idea what to do with it.
Okay maybe that’s not wasting the actual supplies, but it is wasting their potential.
So when I woke up this morning wanting to add a little something to our plain dining area wall, I immediately started thinking about what I had in my stash rather than what I should buy – and I decided to make these removable wall decals.
These gold wall decals are VERY easy to make. You can choose any color you like, though the metallic does make a nice splash. However, pick what looks best with your decor.
DIY Removable Wall Decals
What you’ll need:
Place the cardboard box in a well ventilated area. Drop two sticker sheets inside (making sure the peel-off back is, well, in back).
Spray paint two light coats. You really don’t need a lot since it’s just paint on paper. Allow to dry for 20 – 30 minutes. Your gold wall decals are in the home stretch.
Then take your hole punch and go to town!
The one I used was 2″ in diameter, which was a nice size. You can choose any size punch you like. I started along the edges first, then worked my way towards the middle.
I used three sticker sheets for this project.
Now you’re ready for the fun part! Just peel off the back of the sticker paper and adhere your new gold confetti dots to the wall. Rub them with your finger to smooth out any bubbles.
You can stagger them or create a more formatted pattern. I started with more on the top and less towards the middle of the wall so they looked like they were cascading. Here’s how the wall looked before then after:
These cute gold wall decals added the perfect fun element to a plain wall. The metal sign was amazing but it looked lost before the confetti was added.
Now it’s a lovely little focal wall. And if I want to change it up, the stickers come off with ease without removing your paint. Easy and adorable. Have fun and shine on friends!
