The blank wall behind Adriano’s crib in his nursery has been on my mind. I didn’t want to spend much money, but it really needed something. I decided on colorful dots. Confetti will add some fun and color!
I used spray starch I bought from the dollar store and leftover fabric from the Ikea curtain’s in his old room. I updated his wall for one dollar and in less than two hours!
- scrap fabric
- spray starch
- I used the lid of the spray starch as my stencil and traced around it onto the fabric.
- Cut out your circle. Be careful to cut off your pen marks.
- Spray starch onto your circle. It needs to be saturated, but not dripping.
- Apply the circle to the wall.
Tip: Find a fabric that doesn’t have the exact same color in the pattern that you have on the wall. It makes the dot a different shape. For example, my wall is white and when I put up a red and white dot it just looked like a funky red shape, not a dot.
That’s it. Spray starching fabric on the wall is an idea that’s been around a long time — probably because it’s so easy! It peels right off and leaves no residue on the wall. Just wipe clean with a damp cloth.
