First time posting, so here we go!

I keep seeing those awesome and giant wall decals at Ikea and Urban Outfitters and everywhere, but I couldn't bring myself to spend the thirty dollars on them, thinking that I could cut one out myself for a heck of a lot cheaper. Probably not the most novel entry ever, but I like falling asleep under the oh so fake branches. Anyways, here is a peekture!



The dollarish store on the corner of my block had self liner for $2 a roll, and I used two rolls for the two patterns I wanted. And after that it was just drawing drawing and cutting cutting. And about twenty minutes smoothing smoothing onto my wall. Hopefully it lasts until my lease is up...

Thanks for looking!

Oh my stars - that's awesome!
Loooooove the birdies, and the wacky branchiness of it all!
I never thought of using shelf paper for that - how sticky is it? Do you think it will tear up the wall when it comes down?

Thanks guys! I've never gotten so many warm fuzzies in one place!

The self liner isn't too sticky, just enough to stick to the wall with some adamant rubbing. I've had a few test patches on the wall for a couple of months now and they haven't taken any paint off, which is awesome. I hear if you use contact paper it sticks a lot more and takes off the wall. But iono.

This is a really great idea, and I could see myself doing this for myself as well. Great job!
