Faux Wall Paper

2 Materials
30 Minutes

A fun way to add some life to a small nook or small feature wall!


This was a small closet I was using for all my extra decor and decided to add a little fun to it... it was a super simple quick diy!

Items needed

I had some dollar store paint colors in hand so I used what a had. You will need 2-3 colors of choice and a couple of different sized paint brushes!


I made 5 small dots/ovals with the brush in no order, they are all placed randomly you don’t want a to perfect finished look for this!


This is what it will start to look like. Space them out as you see fit and remember that we are adding some other colors and parts to it.

Next color

Add in the small black( or whatever color you chose) dots through out your design. Spacing them out and adding your own style to it! I did 6 smaller dots for this color

After this step is done all over your wall, I added some leaves as well with another neutral color the same way you did the dots!


Wait for your paint to dry and style your space as you’d like!! Now you have a faux wall paper look on a budget!
