This tutorial will be on how to create a gold glitter heart accent wall. I did this in my daughter Kensley’s nursery. You can read more about how I decorated her nursery here.
This would be such a cute design in your baby’s nursery, a kid’s room, a play room, or a craft room! It is such a fun accent to have in the room. I can’t wait till Kensley is a little older and can appreciate it, but by then who knows, maybe she will have her own ideas about decorating her room! For now, I enjoy getting to do these little projects.
I think that the heart wall really ties the room together. I chose to not have a theme for her nursery but rather do some feminine decor with gold accents. I love gold, but one of my biggest pet peeves is that really icky gold color, the metallic gold. I was careful in reading reviews on amazon before choosing the gold heart vinyl stickers. The ones I chose are the pretty, true gold. They look so shimmery once put on the wall.
There are a couple different ways to do the pattern but I thought this way looked the most clean.

The only supplies you need for this project are the stickers, I used these. And measuring tape!
- Start in the furthermost top right corner and count with your measuring tape about 5 inches from the side and about a 1/2 inch from the ceiling. Then put your first heart here.
- Then measure 14 inches below the first heart and place another heart. Continue this until you’ve put 5 hearts on the wall. I thought that five hearts seemed like the right amount for my ceiling height, but you can of course add more or use less.
- After you finish the first column, place the first heart 9 inches from the ceiling. This will make it so the hearts aren’t even with the other column. Then place your next heart 14 inches below the first heart in this column, same as you did before.
- Next column you will place the heart back at the 1/2 inch from the ceiling. Continue this until you reach the other end of the wall. You might need to purchase two packs of the 36 count from Amazon. I had just one or two stickers left, but I had a huge window in the middle of my wall so I didn’t need to use the stickers for the whole space.
I wanted to add that I did not mark off the heart locations before, I just measured and put them on as I went. If it looked crooked or a little off I would just peel them off and put them back on. They stick really well, but also come off easily. I realize that is a little contradictory, haha but as you can see in the picture it worked out perfectly. I was NOT meticulous about measuring either. I’m sure it’s off by a little here and there, but it will turn out fine as long as you are near the 14 and 9 inch mark.
