Wall Play™ Installation Tips

A Gold Leaf Design Group original. Wall Play™ is easy to install. Dramatic compositions are possible by mixing shapes and colors, using a few or many. Simply mount each to your wall or any surface. It’s easy to be creative!


Decide the overall size of your design and how many pieces you would like to use. Sketching will help to explore options. Another way of visualizing your creation is to adhere Post-It® papers to your vertical surface to represent each Wall Play™ shape. Move the papers around until you are happy. Experiment with clustering and loose flowing.

TIP: For clustering, it is important to note the widest dimension of each Wall Play style. This is the minimum distance required between each.


Wall Play™ is designed for easy installation. It is safe to install directly into drywall. But, for harder material, we recommend that you pre-drill holes. The softer the material, the smaller the drill bit you will need. Drill your holes through the sticky notes that you have placed. See how our friends at Colonna + Co (Park Ridge, Illinois) personalized their Wall Play™ and easily created their site-specific art installation.

TIP: If overlapping Wall Play™ of different heights, install the shortest first, then the tallest.


Wall Play™ is not just for vertical surfaces. You can add splashes of texture and color almost anywhere. Flow your design onto a ceiling, create a custom sculpture, customize furniture and more. Many styles are paintable and can even be used outdoors. Have fun and enjoy.
