As you would do with the corner cluster, start by adding more stickers to the top of the wall. Place each sticker at a slant next to the last one you placed. As you move down the wall continue to add more space between the stickers and end with much bigger gaps at the bottom.

Random pattern

Square pattern

A simple but striking pattern is using a square design. To easily get the correct space between each sticker you can make a simple template. Cut a piece of paper to the distance you want between each sticker and use this to space your stickers out by placing them on the corner of the square template. 

The square and random pattern will work well with any of the shape stickers as long as you keep them all facing the same way.

Mixed shape pattern

You can also have fun and mix different packs of shape stickers together! If you're planning on doing this then keep the shapes simple to ensure they work together.

Stars and dots work really well together. But you could also take two designs of stars such as the regular and starburst stars and mix these up.
