Prepare the Surface Before you start hanging wallpaper on your ceiling, it's important to make sure the surface is clean, smooth, and dry. Fill in any cracks or holes with spackling compound, and sand down any rough spots. You may also want to prime the surface to help the wallpaper adhere better.
Measure the Ceiling Measuring the ceiling is crucial to ensuring that you have enough wallpaper for the job. Measure the length and width of the ceiling and add a few inches to each measurement to account for any trimming or cutting you may need to do.
Cut the Wallpaper to Size Once you have your measurements, cut the wallpaper to size. It's best to work in sections, so start by cutting enough wallpaper for one section of the ceiling.
Apply Adhesive Before hanging the wallpaper, you'll need to apply an adhesive to the back. Make sure to spread the adhesive evenly, taking care not to over-apply it.
Hang the Wallpaper Start by hanging the wallpaper in one corner of the ceiling, working your way across the room. Use a wallpaper brush or a roller to smooth out any bubbles or wrinkles. Make sure to keep a straight edge or level handy to help you keep the wallpaper straight.
Trim the Edges Once you've hung the wallpaper, use a sharp knife or razor blade to trim the edges along the baseboards or crown molding.
