DIY Wood Scalloped Wall Tutorial

DIY Wood Scalloped Wall Tutorial - classyclutter.net Today’s the day! I have had floods of comments and emails asking for this DIY Wood Scalloped Wall Tutorial and as promised, here it is!!! This wall treatment is honestly not that hard or terribly time consuming. Not to mention, it’s damage free to the wall! Hello, awesome! Savannah and I created this (and the entire bedroom makeover!) over a space of 4 days and the wall treatment was one of the lesser time consuming parts of the makeover. Honestly, this is one of my favorite projects, probably ever! Heck, I’ll say it… it’s my favorite project EVER! I mean, it’s pretty awesome, right? Materials

First, follow Savannah’s tutorial for the Gold Sharpie Scalloped Wall. I flipped my scallops the other direction then, I added one more row of scalloping within each scallop. OilMarkerExtraFine_MetallicGold Gold Sharpie Wall Scallops Yep, I cheated and didn’t do behind the headboard because let’s get real, ain’t nobody got time for that. No one is gonna see it so don’t waste your time! 😉 Trace scallop using stencil Next, using your smaller scalloped stencil, trace your shape onto the plywood sheets with a pencil. TIP: We used a clamp and did 4 sheets of plywood at once. That way we only had to trace the shapes on the top sheet of plywood and cut four out at once. Wood Scallops Cut out Once you have all your pieces cut, it’s time to hang them up! Use mounting tape to hang scallops Use your mounting tape and stick a 1-2″ piece on the back and hang them up. Apply scallops to the wall Here’s a shot of the process as we worked. Once you get all of your pieces cut out, it goes super fast! No nail holes to fill and no damage to your wall but you have an awesome wood wall treatment!

  1. This is beautiful! I also can’t wait for the tutorial on the macrame chair. Your accent walls in general are the best ever.

    Thanks for sharing!

  2. Along with the millions, this wall treatment blew my mind! Love how simple it looks (other than cutting all the shapes). Stunning!

  3. Consider using wood veneer which can either be special ordered or is available at some lumber shops instead of plywood. The veneers are available in a wide range of woods including several beautiful and exotic, and because they are so thin can be cut with scissors!

    1. Great suggestion! We thought about that as well but really wanted it to be a bit thicker to give the wall a little texture but it’s an excellent idea! Thanks for sharing!!!

  4. Love your room! Is the light something that Mandi from VR created? I love it and was hoping for a tutorial. Love your style!

  5. Your accent walls are beautiful. I love the idea of using mounting tape to temporarily adhere wood cut outs to give the wall texture and warmth. 🙂 I might use some of your great ideas on a smaller scale, just for fun. Thank you for sharing your creativity.

  6. How did you keep the cutouts level? I am working on this in my room right now and realized my ceiling is not entirely level, it slopes about two inches from left to right. Did you come across this problem?

    1. Hi Megan, You will definitely want to measure to make sure you are doing each row of scallops level. I drew the gold scallop design first and that is when I did all my measuring to make sure everything was level. I’d recommend a laser level so you don’t have to make any marks on the wall.

      Hope that helps!!!

  7. Great Job! I’m not a very handy person so is there another way to cut out the wooden shapes? Or is it easier to just try and use the jigsaw? Thank you!

    1. I could only find one template to down load at good housekeeping.com/scallopstencil. Would u post a stencil link with both scallop templates. All of my small scallops are cut and ready to go. I just need the larger scallop template. Looking forward to the finished product.

      1. Hi Wendy!

        We only used one template. The larger one is just about 2 inches larger across the top but the same shape, you could cut another template if you don’t want to “eyeball” it. 🙂

  8. how is the sharpie paint pen not damaging the wall? is the only way to get rid of it to paint over it? (I’m renting and can’t paint my bedroom wall)

    1. Hi Devin! The sharpie would definitely need to be painted over. The sharpie is optional. If you aren’t allowed to paint, I’d suggest using a pencil and lightly marking your scallops or you can omit this step entirely and just put the wood scallops up. You do not need the Sharpie markings for the overall effect. 🙂

      1. wow thank you for your quick response! I just discovered your blog and am in love! I already have two other projects that I will be doing soon!

  9. Looks great. I like this wooden DIY project very much. Your bedroom look so cute. It is really great idea to make our home furnished with woods. I’m doing some research on DIY projects. I want to do something like that for my family. But I have no idea now. Thanks for sharing your idea.

  10. This is fantastic! Thanks for sharing a very detailed tutorial how we can do it ourselves! I hope to do the same with our bedroom as similar looking design, too.
