Leaf by leaf
Create a delicate and pretty wall with a home-made leaf template. This image works well in a children’s playroom, as well as in a lounge, dining room or bedroom. Other colour combinations also look great!
First apply ERFURT-Vliesfaser MAXX Spot to the wall. You can find detailed step-by-step instructions for this at www.erfurt.com/vliesfaser-tapezieren. Then use white paint as an undercoat. Other finely textured nonwoven wallpaper or nonwoven woodchip wallcoverings are also great as the background for this creative “leafy” design.
And don't worry - if something goes wrong or you don’t like the look, it’s not a problem. Just grab some paint and paint over it. All our wallcoverings can be re-painted several times and are therefore wonderfully versatile and adaptable.
Instructions and list of materials
4. Now use a Stanley knife to cut the transparent film along the lines of the template. Make sure that you cut right through the transparent film. Don’t worry if you also cut the paper on which the template is printed! If possible, do not cut out the leaves right down to the stalk, as this will keep the stencil stable. Produce three templates like this so that you have one template for each colour.
11. Now carefully peel off the template, reposition it and paint more leaves on the wall. Preferably start with the lightest paint and position the leaves randomly on the wall. Then proceed in the same way with the darkest colour. Then fill all the remaining gaps with the middle shade. Use a new template for each colour and thoroughly clean and dry the paint tray.
