I ordered a wall decal off of ebay for my daughters room that says "Believe in your Dreams!".  It is awesome it only took 2 minutes to put up and it looks like I hand lettered it.  I found a few sites that sell this sort of thing and I was wondering if anyone knows how to do this?  It seems like they create them on the computer...but I can't figure out how and what kind of paper they use.  Check out www.wonderfulgraffiti.com to see what I am talking about.  Please let me know if you can help me!

Oh my...what a great site, and great idea. I dont' know how to make these...but I would love to know. Hopefully someone will have some hints. You could maybe use the printable window clingers, but I'm not sure how they would stick to walls. I have some at home...maybe I'll give it a go when I get home.

thanks for posting...I hope we can find a solution cause I can think of a thousand places to put these.

What is a printable window clingable?  I had a friend over tonight who's husband owns a print shop and I asked her to find out what exactly these are.  I will let you know!

Kswab those are so cool!  My sister put one up in her kitchen that says "Eet smakelijk"  (which is basically Bon Apetit in Dutch).  It looks really great.  I wonder if you could buy some kind of clear contact type paper that would work in an inkjet printer.  I hope you figure them out!  If you do, please post!

I want to do something very similar. Same idea but I want graphics, dots, branch silouettes, etc). I was thinking that some sort of really thin vinyl and a low tack spray glue would do the trick but I can't seem to find any vinyl. Joann's has the texture kind but they're all neutral colors and textured. Has anyone seen a source of the smooth shiny kind?
