1. Print our flower vase or budding vine decal patterns onto standard-size printer paper. Use scissors to cut out printed patterns, place them atop contact paper, and trace with pencil.
2. Using scissors, cut out each piece of pattern.
3. After you’ve decided where you’d like your decals, use masking tape donuts to place pieces on wall for temporary positioning.
4. When all pieces are in place, peel away small edge of first piece, stick just that part to the wall to achieve desired position, then peel the rest of the backing away. Use ruler or credit card to smoothly roll the rest of the sticky side onto the wall in small parts to minimalize the appearance of bubbles.

That flower vase might be perfect for my office this time of year… I usually love fresh flowers, but they’re harder to come by in Michigan right now!
That looks very simple and fun to do. I really appreciate that you guys post DIY projects. It’s great for girls like me on a budget.
where’s the ninja!!??
Where did you get the contact paper? I found some but it wasn’t adhesive.
