How to Make Your Own Wall Decals

Wall decals are decorative vinyl pieces that either contain images, such as artwork, or that are cut into shapes, such as leaves, flowers or stars. These decals stick to a wall and peel off easily, making them an ideal choice for decorating apartments that cannot be painted, or for temporarily changing the style of a room without using paint. If you can't find a wall decal in the style you want, make your own using contact paper that is available at nearly any hardware or home improvement store.
1,Purchase contact paper that is the color you want for your wall decals. If you want to make complex decals that contain more than one color, purchase several smaller rolls in different colors, or a package that contains a variety of colors in small bundles, depending on what is available at your local store.
2,Unroll the contact paper and cut a piece that is the length you want for your decal. For example, if you want to create a wall decal that is 12 inches long, measure a section of contact paper that is 12 inches long, then cut that section off the roll using a pair of sharp scissors.

3,Draw the design you want for the wall decal onto the contact paper using a washable marker. For example, if you want a flower decal, draw the shape of the flower onto the decal paper.
4,Cut the contact paper into the shape you want using the stencil you drew on it in step 3. Discard the excess material unless it is large enough to be turned into smaller decals.
5,Peel the paper backing off the contact paper, then press the decal onto the wall. Rub it smooth to remove an air bubbles that have formed. Once it is fixed in place, wash it gently with a damp cloth to remove the marker lines that you drew in step 3
