How to build a Dinosaur... find a blank wall, buy a wall decal and slowly apply. 
The perfect addition to any hallway!

Applying the finishing touches!

However, it's not as easy as it looks, this T-rex is composed of hundreds of individual little pieces which need to be carefully applied. 

Firstly, we had to separate the two layers ensuring that the black decal elements came away with the transfer layer. We needed a good set of fingernails to help with this and so I enlisted my sister-in-law. Next, we precisely positioned the sheet and pressed it into position. Using a credit card we squeezed out any air bubbles. A quick soaking with warm water and we began to peel off the white layer to leave the black decal behind. 

A few days later the decal started to peel. A hairdryer partially melted the decal plastic allowing it to bond to the wall. Job done!
