Walls Need Love is a company based in Nashville who makes vinyl decals for homes, offices, and classrooms! The art from them is fully made in the US and is so fabulous!
First I chose some colored dots. I wanted to make a statement on the boring white wall in the back of my classroom. It's what you see when you first walk in and it totally reminds me of a jail: white cinder block and bars on the windows!
First, I washed the wall with a little soap and vinegar and let it dry overnight. Then I put painter's tape diagonal stripes on the wall.
Next, I started putting the dots on. I used a tool that came with the vinyl to make sure they were really adhered to the wall.
Here are all my dots on the wall.
And last, I peeled the tape off. Voila! I just need to finish sewing my curtains and hang those puppies up and that wall will be done (and way less jail-like!)
Next, I went to tackle my back door. WNL has lots of adorable decals that are marketed towards a nursery, but I knew this alphabet chart would be adorable in a classroom, too!
Here I am smoothing the decal on with the tool. You get to pick what colors you want the alphabet in and another color for your personalized saying.
In the baby nurseries, the decals said "B is for Ben" and things like that. Mine says "F is for First Grade!" I love it! I'm just waiting on some border I ordered and that will be taped around the outside of the door, finishing off the look.
So now that you've seen what I was able to do in my room with the decals, now it's your turn! Walls Need Love is giving away one decal of choice to one lucky reader of Teaching With Style! Good luck!
