Installing a Tree Wall Decal using Center Hinge Method

  • January 19, 2015

Some of the most popular items that leave our shop are our line of Tree Decals. Perfect for nurseries, living rooms, or bedrooms they add a unique touch to any room’s decor and instantly catch the eye of all who enters.

Our latest video demonstration describes the steps for installing a multiple piece tree decal, or any multiple piece decal for that matter using our center hinge method again.

Although not hard to do, multiple piece decals and trees can require more time to get all of the pieces installed. Because all of the leaves are placed by hand, it allows for your design to be entirely unique to your creativity. So grab a friend for help and have fun with your new project!

Take a look!
