LED Cloud Walls have gained a lot of traction on TikTok because they are an affordable, fun, DIY trend that looks super cool! You don’t have to be a DIY expert to take on the cloud wall. In fact, it only requires a few supplies to make your own.
Cloud walls look great as a pop of color in bedrooms, kids rooms, basements, studios, and more. In this post, I’ve included a few awesome cloud wall examples as well as how to make your own cloud wall!
How to Make Your Own Cloud Wall
Like I said, making a cloud wall requires a relatively small amount of supplies, which is great if you’re on a budget! All you’ll need is poster board, command strips (or thumb tacks if you’re not worried about holes in the wall) , polyester fiber fill, a hot glue gun, and adhesive LED lights.
IMPORTANT NOTE: It is extremely important to use only LED lights that do not emit any heat when making a cloud wall, to prevent the poster board or cotton from burning.
- Hang your poster boards on your wall using the command strips or tacks. You can get creative with how you hang these. Some people make different shapes, while others just make a rectangle. It looks cool either way!
- Stick the LED lights to the board in a random fashion.
- Glue the poly-fil all over the poster boards, covering the lights
- Decorate however else you would like to customize your cloud wall! Vines & Butterflies make for a really unique look if you’re looking for ideas.
