I had many requests on how I made this "wallpaper" in Kk's bedroom. I think I had Sharpies and projectors on the brain during Creating with the Stars at East Coast Creative due to these projects submitted, shown here and here.
Originally, I wanted to use fabric on the wall. Namely, Ikea's black, white, and green bird print that is not longer sold in stores, but I was not aware of that until I went to the store. I decided to use a projector and six Sharpie paint pens (please see note below). I traced some of the pattern on the wall. Instead of copying it exactly the way it was on yardage, I moved pieces around and traced what I liked and where I wanted them to go. Fairly easy, but it did take a toll on my wrist and shoulder. :) It took me a day to do the work, but I would recommend breaking it up a little to let your arm and hand rest. A steady hand will be your best friend to achieve good results.
*Photos were taken with my phone. I was so focused on getting the room done during a short amount of time that tutorial photos were not at the forefront of my brain. But I think you get the idea. *
TIP:: Do NOT use Sharpie's Flip Chart Permanent Marker. It will bleach the wall but was easily remedied with paint. (See note below.)
I continued the process all around the window moving the projector when needed.
I really loved how it turned out. It doesn't look like Sharpie either, and if I had some of you fooled, then your friends and neighbors will be fooled too.
Update: Vintage Revivals has been using paint pens with much success lately. As I am not 100% sure what the markers will do later on, although I was able to cover it up with paint when I made a few mistakes, I would recommend following Mandi's advice and using the paint pens instead of markers just to be safe. I have replaced the word markers with paint pens for future readers.
