Here they are here they are!
So many of you have been asking me for *boy* stickers after I made my first giant wallpaper stickers using Spoonflower‘s removable wallpaper for the girls last year….well, I say it was about time I deliver! I really don’t mean to leave our little dudes on this blog’s sidelines, it’s just that with three girls at home….well, the road usually takes me via Pink lane, Pixie Dust alley, Flamingo road, and Unicorn avenue….oh we go different paths and talk spaceships and go camping and build with hammers and nails…..but guess what, girls will be girls
But today, let’s switch gears shall we? I’ve got some bears, foxes, eagles, dinosaurs and whales stickers for you!
I created templates that you can download for each of them – download at the bottom of the post. Quite frankly, I think boys and girls would love these. I make them quite big – but if you want them even bigger for your walls just drop me an email and I’ll send you what you need 😉 I was planning on also making pirate ship + treasure island stickers for this edition, but I ran out of time. Next edition – if you guys are interested at all?
Directions are exactly the same as last time but I included them in this post again. Have fun! Oh, and if you are interested, you can still download the flamingo, unicorn, bambi, cat and bunny wall stickers I made last year – just go to this post
1. Download the printable of the animal you want and print out the pdf – download links right after the “how to” section. Tip: if you are quite the artist, skip the downloads and draw your own shapes directly on the removable wallpaper
2. Assemble the printed animals like a puzzle using the numbers to make the shape of the animal, attach the pieces together where the shapes join with tape so that you have one big animal (skip this step for the fish), then cut out the outline.
3. Put your animal on your wallpaper and draw the outline on your wallpaper. For the bear, you will need to cut two pieces of wallpaper side my side as it’s the widest animal. Make sure to align the pieces of wallpaper and tape them together to get the pattern right before you start tracing/cutting. Some of the other stickers are wider than the width of the wallpaper (tail won’t fit) – just cut the body and use some of the scrap to cut the small missing part. Again, make sure the patterns match.
Another tip: I like to draw on the front of the wallpaper so that I know that I am aligning with the pattern correctly. Use a pencil rather than a pen so you can erase any visible line if needed.
4. Cut out your shape in the removable wallpaper.
5. Spray water on the back of your animal to activate the glue, and apply your sticker on a dry, clean wall. Tip: to avoid air bubbles smooth the first stroke down the centre & smooth outwards from here. If you see a bubble forming, simply lift the wallpaper just beyond the bubble & re-smooth over.
6. Et voila, you’re done! When you child gets tired of the stickers, simple spray the sticker with water – it will dissolve the glue and you’ll be able to easily take down the stickers without any damage to your walls
