Have posted before about pirate theme wall borders or stencils and did have a few answers. One was helpful and that was from Next. Guess what they havent had any stock for weeks and cant say if they will get any more. Pirate themed stuff is like bloody gold dust.

Anyway, after hours of searching websites I came up with what I thought was a terrific border from USA! (nothing in UK) will try link

Feck, I knew it wouldnt work!! It was going to cost £8 per roll but 80 dollars to ship about £40 what the bloody hell is going on. I cant make up my mind whether they dont want the business as I cant believe it costs that.

Not quite what you're after, but would any of this stuff work?

Some stencils here

Nice try and I love the inflatable 5' palm tree might give that a whirl once Ive decorated.

Yep, I saw those stencils but they are huge. More for putting in a mural. thanks again.

You would think it would be so simple a pirate border for a kids room. My ds will be so disappointed.

Can you hang the bunting/banner from the first link all round? It would have to be at the top of the wall, where it meets the ceiling, I guess.

yes, thats a thought.
