DIY Wall decal

SO excited to share about this project! Giddy excited. We are in the middle of transforming Nevaeh's room from a pink and green haven into a blue horse big girl room. This will probably be something we do a little at a time but that doesn't mean I couldn't get started. The main thing I wanted to get was a unicorn wall decal (my version of a horse) but was not going to pay almost 60 bones for. So I decided to make my own (it only cost $1.29)!
All you need is a black poster board and mod podge as the main material. 
Draw out your design, cut out each shape, and put a layer of mod podge on the backside. Once placed on the wall, cover each piece with a thin layer over the design to seal the decal and create a high gloss effect. The mod podge goes on white and then dries clear. Next, I cut fine strips and made stars for a final touch by repeating the same process.
The end 3-d effect looks better then a sticker decal AND it's something you can make on your own. Plus for a little over a buck it's my kind of project.


  1. Pretty fancy "horse". Looks very nice.

  2. Lulu, this looks awesome! Nev I'm sure is so in love with her room and you are such a genius!
