I have a very empty wall in my new room at school. We arent allowed to paint and i hate starring at empty wall space. This is a cheap and somewhat easy way to spruce up those bare walls in your dorm or apartment.
Step 1: Tools and Supplies
Not many tools are needed for this project. simple stuff you can find around the house or with a quick trip to the nearest Target (or like store). Total cost was about $10.
Black Poster Board
Knife or X-acto blade (not pictured)
poster board stickies
gloves (optional and not pictured)
Step 2: Find a Picture
First, find a picture you like. I just googled what I wanted for a reference. Next sketch your image onto the cardboard so you have an outline. Also by doing this on the cardboard you can keep the poster board clean. Once you finish that cut it out and trace it onto the poster board and then cut out the image. I eyeballed the propellers final part but im sure it can be done neater. Using an X-acto blade or Knife makes the hard-to-cut-places-with-scissors easier to cut.
Step 3: Finishing Up
The last steps are simple. If you have more then one piece for an image like I did, tape the back together. Print out anything else that you want to add for color like the patch I added. Then attach the stickies and enjoy your new dorm room silhouette.
On a side note: Im planning on adding contact paper where the windows would be. Its an easy way to give a shiny effect if thats what your looking for.
