fabric decals on a white doorStarch and laundry get along really well, and you can also use corn starch to thicken up homemade gravy and other homemade delicacies, but did you know that you can use corn starch to "paint" fabric onto your walls?

Jessica at How About Orange made homemade starch, sketched out her plan, cut out fabric, then applied the homemade starch to the fabric. She then applied the fabric to her door, smoothing out any air bubbles she encountered along the way.

Jessica used double-stick tape to see how the fabric would first look arranged on her door. She advises that when taking the fabric off the wall, all you have to do is peel off the pieces and wipe off any leftover starch with a damp cloth.

I love the decals, as they are perfect for times when hammering nails into a wall just isn't appropriate, such as in dorm rooms. They can also cover up any nail holes left by previous tenants, or you can just simply have fun decorating your walls at your whim.
