These wonderful wall stickers by StickersfromLola are genius – hand-painted in the Cotswolds – mini murals that could be a wonderful storytelling aid, helping stir creative young minds and infuse a little magic into your house!
These mice are holding a tentative protest against the cats in your home! Although they probably won’t be successful in scaring off any felines, they are guaranteed to make visitors smile! This sticker fits nicely on a standard skirting board, but would look great on the stairs or the window ledge- maybe you even have a cat free zone they’d be perfect for? They’re suitable for outdoor use too if you can find a smooth flat surface.
This little guy is a great talking point and never fails to delight children/guests/cats in your home.
Many designs come in two sizes to fit even the smallest of skirting boards, and the range, available on Etsy, now come with a matte laminate for a hand painted finish.
The designs are the work of Stroud-based artist Holly English, who works across a variety of mediums.
This little robin will make a charming addition to your household! Put him in the window to brighten up a wintery view, on a door frame or light switch, he’ll perch anywhere..
This mysterious staircase could go anywhere! Who lives at the top, or is there a top at all?… I’m sure your little ones will tell you!
Quick and easy to apply, these stickers are waterproof and extremely sturdy so you can wipe them clean as often as you need to. If for any reason you need to remove them, then this is no problem either, simply peel them away from the wall- they leave no residue, so your walls will be good as new.
I think they’re great fun – and would certainly spark a few imaginations, young and old.
