Installing a vinyl wall decal sticker can be a fun and creative way to enhance your baby's space. Here's a step-by-step guide to help you with the installation process!
Things you need:
- Vinyl wall decal sticker
- Cleaning supplies (mild soap, water, and a lint-free cloth)
- Masking tape
- Level or measuring tape
- Squeegee or credit card
Step 1: Prepare the surface
Prepare the surface for installation by ensuring it is entirely clean for a hassle-free process. Use a mild soap and water solution to remove any dirt, dust, or grease, wiping the wall with a lint-free cloth before proceeding.
Step 2: Decide the positioning of the decal
You could choose a flat surface such as a wall, mirror, cupboard or almost any other part of the room to begin with the placement of your wall decal sticker. First, separate out elements and then place the entire decal onto the surface, marking out the exact positioning of the sticker on the wall using a level, measure tape and pencil for markings.
Step 3: Plan the placement
Lay the decal flat on a table and carefully start marking out the desired elements, cutting them out one by one. Once you have the elements separated and cut out, start positioning them onto the chosen surface.
P.S. use strong pieces of masking tape to ensure they don’t fall off their marked positions!
Step 4: Prepare the decal
Once you’re satisfied with the positioning of the elements, start sticking! Ensure that each of the elements are placed with the backing paper facing upwards. Now, use a squeegee or credit card to firmly press over the decal's backing paper across each chosen element. This will help ensure the vinyl adheres properly to the transfer tape.
Step 5: Start sticking!
Once the decal is ready, slowly start peeling of the backing paper, starting from a corner. Use a squeegee/credit card to make sure no air bubbles are formed & of course, be patient with the process! Repeat this procedure for each of the marked elements on the wall.
Step 6: Finish transforming your wall
Once the decal is applied to the wall, gently peel off the transfer tape at a 45-degree angle. Use both your hands and make sure to pull it back slowly, ensuring that the vinyl sticks to the wall.
P.S. don't forget to have fun with the process!
