- TikToker and renter Emily Shaw transformed her hallway ceiling into a terrazzo-style oasis for $15.
- She stuck clusters of Target’s viral wall decals that come in $5 packs of 20 across the ceiling.
- The hack is renter-friendly since it doesn’t puncture the walls, and Shaw says they come off easily.

In the video from March 3, Shaw explained exactly how she added a terrazzo-style design to her ceiling in just a few hours without damaging the wall for only $15 total. She did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.

At the time of writing, the video had almost more than one million views and nearly 250,000 likes. TikTokers in the comments seem intrigued by the idea, and some can’t believe it was so inexpensive to do.
“For 15 bucks, that’s so awesome,” one TikToker commented. “I’m so obsessed with terrazzo,” wrote another, “I love this.”
Shaw begins the video by explaining that her cheap and simple hack was an alternative to her initial idea to add wooden slats to the ceiling.
“That is just so much work, so I’m going to make them terrazzo instead,” she said in the video.
Shaw said in the video that she purchased her wall decals from Target – three packs for $5 each filled her hallway ceiling.
When placing the decals on the wall, Shaw said that the stickers peel and stick easily, although stretching her arms to the ceiling got tiring after a while. The whole process took just a few hours, she added.
Instead of being in the home section like one might expect, these decals are hidden among toys, vases, mugs, and other items in Target’s discount section at the front of the store known as Bullseye’s Playground.
Each $5 pack comes with 20 sheets, but you’ll have to have a keen eye to snag one.
