‘Wall stickers are a fun and easy way to customise your home and are great for bringing life to a small space. These SLÄTTHULT stickers are removable and don’t leave a mark on the wall, so you can use them in a rented home for a quick change that isn’t permanent!’

How to do it

1 Choose a shape for your headboard, and create its outline in stickers on the wall.
Tip: Make sure that the headboard shape is at least as wide as your bed, and reaches down as far as your pillows when the bed is made.

2 Fill the space inside your outline with stickers, mixing up light and dark, and large and small stickers.
Tip: If you’re using stickers of moving things, make sure they’re all ‘moving’ in the same direction!
