Everyone thought I was insane when I told them I wanted to have polkadots in my office. But you know when you get an idea stuck in your head that you just have to do? I just knew I wanted to have polka dots from the day I moved into my house and I looked around for a few weeks at stencils, templates and other ideas until I finally realized I could make my own wall decals!
Vinyl ($8.99 2 Cricut Vinyl Packages = $17.98)
.75″ 3/4 Inch Hole Puncher ($5.99)
=$23.97 for a WALL MAKEOVER!
I used the Raven Cricut vinyl here they actually sell it in my local Michaels. However you can find other brands and colors for the vinyl on Etsy and other craft corners. I used almost two packs of vinyl for one wall in my room. The vinyl comes in 12″ x 24″ packs so you may need to measure and do a bit of math to avoid multiple store trips.
First I laid out the vinyl on the floor with the color facing down. The vinyl can be kind of hard to cut through (especially if you are using a cheap hole puncher like me!) so make sure that you press down with some force for accurate cuts.
Once you have punched holes, just cut the used strip and start over.
Finally, place the decals on your wall! I didn’t really use anything to measure the polka dots. You can eyeball the polka dots and they usually come out pretty well but if you’d feel safer measuring them its totally up to you.
Finished product! I love my new polka dot walls so much! For those of you wondering the color we used underneath is Princess Ivory by Behr #300C-1
