“家和萬事興”, a Chinese short phrase that means prosperity for a harmonious family. With mountain and plum tree coupled with the auspicious wording, this sticker set turns your wall into a beautiful painting. Such a landscape oriented wall sticker is pretty unique for Chinese New Year decoration.
Wall sticker made of crystal acrylic is not only unique for its 3D effect, but also its resistance to indoor humidity and its durability. We love this decoration as it is not overly exaggerated and looks like a real Chinese ink painting from far.
However, do note that this acrylic sticker may require large scale of pasting effort. Nonetheless, we are pretty sure it’d be a fun experience for those who enjoy a sense of accomplishment from home decoration!

“福” means happiness and blessings in Chinese. This decorative set is made with high temperature ceramics and is glazed with shining bright colours, making it an eye-catching decorations for home.
