1. Pick a coordinating book of scrapbook paper that will match your decor and coordinate pages.
2. Figure out how many dots you will need to cover your wall. I did 4 x 4.
3. Lay out this many pieces of paper on your floor to get a feel for the order, colors, and patterns you want to use.
4. Use a plate or other large circular object to trace out circles, and then cut them out. Alternatively you can use a Circut or Die Cutter if you have one (and save your hands).
5. Pin up on the wall (in a manner safe to your wall). I recommend blue painters tape or scotch tape. You can make a loop and place it between the paper and the wall to hide the tape.
I have a creative streak. I don't deny it--guess what, engineers are creative by their very job description! So give me a book of scrapbook paper and I'll turn it into the moon. (Disclaimer: not really, but try a tissue box, or a desk board, or wall paper; and sure, I can do that! Also I can make a mobile with a few bits of string and beads and sticks, in case you were interested.) The walls in my apartment were a bit bare, and I like to spend the wee hours of the morning decorating them (when I'm not sleeping or writing blog posts for you) because beautiful things are a reminder that God's creation all around us is glorious and a picture of His love.

Remember this is an accent wall, not for main walls! If you did this everywhere, it may get a bit overwhelming. Also don't worry about the circles and lines being perfectly straight, the joy of things like this is that they're an expression of your creativity, not a standard operating procedure or a how to manual. Hey, even go off scope with the directions I gave. Post in the comments below how you made this unique to you!
