Make wall tattoo yourself: Video tutorial
The wall tattoos are an absolute eye-catcher on your wall! There are many variations, so you can make a wall tattoo yourself. Many merchants offer online orders where you can choose a pre-made design or write your own spell. Then you have to attach the wall tattoo on the wall yourself (just look at the video above). The possibilities for motives are endless. Whether a heart in the bedroom, flowers on the walls in the living room, stars in the hall or zoo in the nursery – the eyes of your guests are directed to the wall tattoo. The easiest way to beautify your wall is with Vinyl Foile. But it is especially important that the film is removable. There are also such black cardboard stencils, from which you simply cut out the desired figures and stick them to the wall. If you have talent for painting, you can turn your walls into a work of art. There is no doubt here – opt for mural painting instead of wall tattoo! Your wall looks even more cozy and cozy with wall tattoos made of fabric! Especially if the room is decorated in country style, or children’s room. We have prepared two free tutorials for you, just follow the steps. It’s not difficult at all and it’s really fun!
Instructions with vinyl foil
You can create the motif for your wall tattoo yourself using an image editor or download one from the internet. If the subject is larger (for example, the location is over the sofa), simply use several A4 size transparencies. The wall tattoo can be printed at home if the printer can handle such slides or simply in a copy center.
Step 1: Attach the foil to the wall in this way
Step 2: Using a credit card, press down on the foil for easier pasting
Now rub evenly with the credit card over the individual elements of the wall tattoo. So transfer the wall tattoo from the white foil to the transparent foil. Pull the carrier film off slowly and evenly. Then rub the wall tattoo again from the inside out with the credit card. Now comes the last step. Pull the transfer ribbon slowly and flat from top to bottom. Finished!
Mural painting instead of wall tattoo
If you have a talent for painting, it’s clear – you do not need instructions, just paint on the wall! But if you are not such a painter, print the subject on a slide and use a projector to project the picture onto the wall. Then simply paint the motif with wall colors. Another option is to buy or print stencils and paint them with spray.
