Are you ready to level up your laptop case? About time to freshen up those tired old stickers that have been there since you created your Myspace account? If so, listen up! By far the favorite wallpaper hack among Spoonflower employees is the peel-and-stick laptop skin. There’s a reason why just about each and every laptop in the Spoonflower HQ offices is adorned with a swatch of Woven Peel & Stick wallpaper! It’s affordable (a swatch is just $8!) and super easy to peel off and change with the seasons of life. Plus, with all the options in our indie Marketplace or the ability to design your own, you can truly let your creativity run wild. Watch our video tutorial below to find out just how easy this wallpaper hack really is!

Materials needed: 

-Nothin’ but one single swatch of Peel & Stick wallpaper and scissors!

Optional: because of the woven fiber construction of the Peel & Stick wallpaper, you will notice that it frays over time. Pick up some Fray Stop Spray and you’ll be all set.

    Is this post still active as all of the “swatches” mentioned above are currently called “test swatches” and are 2×1. Will this still come as the 24 x 12 dimensions as mentioned above…can it still be used as a computer cover? Thanks for the help!

    • Hi Candis,

      Thanks for your interest in this project! Our wallpaper test swatches are 2 feet by 1 foot or 24 inches by 12 inches. You will be able to cut the perfect dimensions for your laptop from the swatch. I’m a big fan of my laptop cover and its easy to change out when a new design catches my eye! Have fun!


  • Great post! Customized laptop skin make the look of the laptop stylish and outstanding. If you would like laptop skin cover of your own choice which is created by real wood or leather then shop it now from online store Toastmade.

  • exactly! And there’s nothing stopping you from covering cell phones, tablets, etc. with woven as well! Coordinating electronic devices–why not?

  • One swatch of woven wallpaper is 24″ x 12″. Just order a $7.50 swatch, trace the shape of your laptop onto the swatch, cut, peel, and stick!

    Oh YES!! This is so awesome!!! I was silly and didn’t realize I could order a swatch of wallpaper. Now I’m bursting with project ideas 😀

  • The wallpaper swatches (either type) are all 24 inches across by 12 inches down. Your laptop case needs to be smaller than this (which I suspect all of them are!) and you then draw around it for the exact size and shape. You would order some number of feet on a “roll” (still at that 24 inch width) if you wanted to cover something larger.
