DIY: How to Wallpaper Your Dollhouse


Looking to liven up your old dollhouse, or want a fun afternoon activity to do with your kiddo? Well our Sample Wallpaper here at Anewall makes for the PERFECT wallpaper for your dollhouse, and the process is super easy + fun. If we can do it, you can too! Read on for a detailed step-by-step guide on how to wallpaper your dollhouse using our Samples:

What you will need:

  • Anewall wallpaper Peel & Stick sample sheets

  • measuring tape

  • pencil

  • scraper or credit card

  • x-acto knife

  • scissors

 

1. Time to Measure

Firstly, you will need to figure out how many samples to order for your dollhouse. Using a small tape measure, measure the width + height of each wall you will be wallpapering.

Simple Walls - measure height and width like normal

Walls with Obstacles - For walls with windows, doors, etc, measure the height and width as if the obstacles aren’t there.

Angled or arched walls - measure the height and width of the longest point, you will cut to shape later.

 2. Order Samples

Once you have decided on which designs you would like, and how much you need, you can place your sample order here. Make sure to choose "Peel and Stick" as this is the material that is easiest to install on a dollhouse. It will basically be like a giant sticker! The samples come in an 8 x 10 inch size, so make sure to measure accordingly. 

If our sample size doesn't work for your dollhouse walls, you may also order a custom size through our customer service team. Just send an email to hello@anewall.com to get your custom order started!

We also recommend choosing a design with a small, repeating pattern. Here are a few examples of designs that work well:

3. Prep Your Walls

Now you've received your sample order, and are ready to get started. First you will need to make sure your little dollhouse walls are properly prepped! Grab a damp cloth and give the walls a good wipe through, removing any dust and debris, and leaving them nice and smooth. When all of the walls are clean, you can move onto your next step.

3. Plan the Layout

Lay out your Sample Wallpaper against the walls to make sure everything lines up correctly. When you’re confident about the placement, you can begin the placing process!

4. Cut Sample Wallpaper

Using the measurements you've made previously, cut your sample wallpaper to the correct size. Don’t worry about cutting out any obstacles (doors or windows) yet, as you will do this after the wallpaper is placed on the wall.

5. Place to the Wall

Peel back 1-3 inches of the lining and carefully place on the corner of the wall, and continue to remove more lining as you go. Use a credit card to smoothen out any bubbles along the way. 

6. Cut the excess 

Using an x-acto knife, cut out any excess wallpaper from the sides. This is also where you can cut out any obstacles like windows or doors!

And there you have it! Now you’ve got a fresh new dollhouse that totally matches your aesthetic too. We think this DIY project is such a fun activity to do with your kiddos, they will seriously love their new unique treasure!
