Ocean Wall Decals for Nursery
Hi. I’m Maggie and in this video I’m gonna show you some DIY projects that are going to help you to enhance the wall decal that’s behind me.
This decal is called the Nautical Adventure and it’s found in the Ocean Wall Decals series by Wall Decal Source.
By the end of this video I’m going to take this monogram and turn it into…
So I hope you stay tuned.
This is part four in the Nautical Adventure series.
If you didn’t get a chance to see part 1 that’s okay, just click here to go back and watch video one.
Once you’re finished, come back and see me and we’ll get started.
Alright so let’s get started. For this project you’re going to need a few materials, so let’s talk about them.
- First things first is our sea glass gems, these are going to be used to make the monogram really pop, so you’re gonna want to take two colors. One color is gonna be for the actual monogram itself and the other is going to be for the background.
- The next thing you’re gonna need are two types of glue. The Krazy glue is going to be used to put the sea glass gems down and then the glue gun is going to be used to actually put these fun little shells here too create a fish, and the fish is going to help tie in our monogram to the rest of the decal.
- Then we’re gonna need the wall hooks so that you can put these monograms up on the wall as well as the shells that you’re going to use for your fish for this monogram.
Now if you want to find out more about how to create this monogram, look back at our storybook video with Kristen, and Kristin will show you how to get this put together. You can watch Kristen’s video here
Last thing you’re gonna need is your water to stay hydrated and your phone because what mom doesn’t always need to be contacted, plus it has a nice little turtle on it that goes with our theme. So, let’s do it.
So to begin, we’re going to take our colored sea glass gem and outline the actual letter of the monogram. So we’re going to start at one end, and just outline as we go. Once we have this outlined and we know exactly how many gems we’re going to use, then we’ll start to put the glue down.
Alright, so now I am done with my blue gems that outlined my letter and I am moving on to the clear gems and make sure that you have enough Krazy glue because mine has run out, so I’m improvising by using the glue gun which can get a little bit messy but still it does the same thing.
Now I’ve finished adding on all my sea glass gems and I’m gong to now add on the fish made out of shells. And you want to take one of your smaller shells, that will be the tail, you want to add that guy first because he’s going to go underneath the bigger one. So it’s gonna look just like this. I’m gonna take my glue gun, glue it on. Maybe I’ll use a little more glue.
And I’m going to use my gems, and my frame to glue it onto. Almost like it pops out of the frame, like a 3D effect. And then I’m going to take my larger shell, and get it glued. And last but not least, the shell on top that will act as the fin of the fish. So I’m going to give you some time, go ahead and get the rest of your monograms done, and when you get finished come back and see me and we’ll hang them up on the wall.
Okay, so now we’re going to hang our monograms.
Thank you so much for watching and I hope you had just as much fun as I did with our Nautical Adventure wall decal.
