Most of this is an idea that I can't take credit for, BUT I have no idea who it is that can. Awhile ago I was watching the tale end of this Utah based T.V. show and caught the last bit of this segment. There was a lady there talking about sticking fabric on the wall like it was vinyl. I was trying to pay attention, but with 3 little kids, you can't always listen like you would like. So I filled in the blanks, and I unfortunately can't even check this girl's blog out because I didn't catch any of her! If you know who she is, let me know so I can link it up!! I at first didn't know of what I would do this for, but I thought it was a cool idea. So for nights on end I was trying to think of a way I can make it work in my home...then it finally came out of nowhere and I decided it would work best for me to use it as a growth chart rather than just a fabric decal like hers! Anyway, I will give you my version of how I did it!
First your supplies:
1. Any scrap fabric that will fit the size you want your shape to be.
2. HeatN' Bond I used a mixture of ultra and lite because I used burlap and the "lite" wasn't holding for me.
4. sewing machine (optional)
5. permanent marker. (for measuring your kidletts..if you want to use it for that)
Okay, so the first thing I did was draw out a huge circle on my fabric because I was making a whimsical tree to match my daughter's bedding. Then I free-handed a trunk to go with it.
Then I just ironed on my heatn'bond and ironed it onto the wall...That simple!
