STEP 1: Choose the Location

  • Decide where you want the wall decal. For larger decals measure the area to ensure sufficient space.
  • Mark small guiding points with a pencil to help align the decal straight. 

STEP 2: Prepare the Wall

  • Inspect the wall for bumps, holes, or old adhesive residues. Clean any dirty spots with soap and water and fill in holes if necessary.
  • Ensure the wall is completely dry before proceeding.

STEP 3: Unpack the Decal

  • Depending on its size, your decal may be rolled in a tube or laid flat on sheets.
  • Lay the decal on a flat surface to prepare for application.

STEP 4: Peel and Apply

  • Carefully peel the decal from its backing.
  • Position it on the wall where you planned.

STEP 5: Smooth it Out

  • Use your hands and a squeegee to smooth out the decal, removing any air bubbles or wrinkles.
  • An application tool, if provided, can be helpful in this step.

STEP 6: Adjust if Necessary

  • If the wall decal isn't perfectly aligned or needs repositioning, gently peel it off and adjust.
  • The decals are designed to be repositioned without causing damage.

Repeat Steps for Multiple Decals

  • If your set includes multiple decals or parts, repeat the above steps until your wall decor is complete.
  • These decals are designed for easy application, suitable for novice installers.

Additional Tips:

  • Clean the wall thoroughly, removing oil, dirt, and dust. Use a lint-free wet cloth or sugar soap for older walls.
  • Allow the wall to dry completely for 24 hours before application.
  • Avoid using cleaning products as they might affect adhesion.
  • For initial placement, consider using blu tack with the backing paper still on. This step is optional since the decals are removable and reusable.
  • When peeling the decal, start by peeling down approximately 10cm of the backing sheet, avoiding touching the adhesive. Stick this part down first, then gradually remove the rest of the backing sheet while applying the decal.
  • Smooth the decal with a clean hand to ensure it adheres flat to the wall.
  • Keep the backing sheets for future use, such as moving or repositioning the decals.
