Some of the most popular items that leave our shop are our line of Tree Decals. Perfect for nurseries, living rooms, or bedrooms they add a unique touch to any room’s decor and instantly catch the eye of all who enters.
Our latest video demonstration describes the steps for installing a multiple piece tree decal, or any multiple piece decal for that matter using our center hinge method again.
Although not hard to do, multiple piece decals and trees can require more time to get all of the pieces installed. Because all of the leaves are placed by hand, it allows for your design to be entirely unique to your creativity. So grab a friend for help and have fun with your new project!
Whether you are new to installing wall decals or a pro, this step by step Center Hinge Method video demonstration will have you feeling confident to tackle any decal project!
We’re frequently asked “How easy is it to install a decal?” The answer is “pretty darn easy”, but just like any other DIY project, the bigger you go the more time, steps, and extra hands can be required.
After years of experience, Wallums owners Michelle and Steve here could probably do this in their sleep! But after your first try, you’ll be pretty impressed how much you learn and remember for the next time around. Although mistakes can happen, by watching this video or by carefully reading your installation instructions page, you will significantly reduce the likelihood of an amateur move.
Thanks for watching, and if you have any questions be sure to send them to email@example.com!
With our line of Chalkboard Decals new to our store this Fall, we are drawing inspiration from several amazing bloggers who show us how to use chalkboard in the most festive Fall decorating displays ever!
It’s always exciting when a Wallums Decal leaves our shop and goes home to creative design minds like Jeran’s of Oleander and Palm. What starts out as just pieces of vinyl on a sheet of wax paper, soon gets transformed into amazing displays of art work like in her latest Global Backpacker Bedroom Makeover.
Like every good design project, there are many steps to take and planning involved. Shown below, every item for this bedroom was carefully selected and thought out. We could hardily wait to see what Jeran had planned when we saw that image of our World Traveler Decal among the other items included in the bedroom project!
Once Jeran received our decal she followed the instructions perfectly by taping off the corners of the decal to install it in sections. We know it’s easy to get excited and want to rush through things, but trust us when we say (and Jeran might agree) to take your time reading through the instructions and video before installing it!
Since we rarely ever get to know what our customers have in store for their new Wallums decal, the final results always blows us away when a photo is shared. The end results of this project definitely made us very proud! The map was a great addition to this backpacking, outdoorsy themed big boy room.
Roeshel was very clever with her installation! Shown here installed on a piece of scrap wood that was sanded and destressed, her decal is now a unique bath sign that can be moved from wall to wall when some re-arranging and re-decorating is needed.

Fun Ducky Bathroom Decor
Curious myself, I decided to give it a go at installing a decal in my own home! If you have children who love bath time, this Family Of Ducks Wall Decal is the perfect addition to a kid friendly bathroom.
Aligning Your Decal
It is important to be absolutely sure where you would like to place your decal. Using tape such as clear packaging tape or blue painters tape, hold up your decal design before installing it and stand back to get a better idea of how it will scale on your wall or desired surface. For once the decal is finally installed, it is there to stay! The vinyl material is not meant to be reapplied again, and may stretch and lose its adhesive once removed.
The Problems With Grout
First things first, be sure your bathroom walls and tile are clean and completely dry before you begin. Second, I would suggest to be careful where the edges of your decal apply on tile for as I learned in this project, vinyl is not compatible with rough surfaces such as grout and will have difficulty adhering properly. Silly me, my poor little ducky heads were placed right on the grout line and started to peel off. Luckily though the rest of their bodies adhered perfectly, and they have remained stuck to my bathtub tiles after many, many showers!
So there you have it! These two projects prove that no room in your home is off limits when it comes to installing your wall decals!
Here at Wallums we have some fabulous chalkboard vinyl that we use for many of our fun kids room and nursery themed designs. But we realized that there can be many uses for this material, such as labels for jars and other items!
Since I’ll be hosting a Bridal Shower this coming weekend, I thought it would be a great idea to try out these labels for the mason jars and big drink container I recently found at our town’s local Antique Fair.
Crayola Drawing Chalk
To get started, I used our larger size labels, a set of Crayola Drawing Chalk and a white Chalk Ink Marker.
Chalk Ink Marker
This marker is easy to use, just shake well, press down on the tip to get the ink started, and it’s ready to go!
Mason Jars and Chalkboard Decal Labels
Mason jars are incredibly in style for weddings, parties, and to store household items. Using our chalk ink marker, these jars are clearly labeled to distinguish the different kitchen pantry items. Although these jars had some design on them, the label still adhered over the indents without trouble. Just be sure that the edgers are completely pressed down so no moisture gets underneath.
Use Labels To Write Names Or Other Fun Messages Onto Drinking Glasses
Worried people will get their glasses mixed up at your party? We have a solution to that problem! Have your guests write their names or a message on their glass to tell them apart, whether its a mason jar or wine glass.
Chalkboard Labels On Drinking Containers For A Shower Or Wedding
These labels can go onto just about anything! You saw how well it worked on glass, and here it is stuck onto my antique porcelain container that can be used for serving water, iced tea, or yummy Sangria!
Antique Drink Container For Water
This label was written on with the drawing chalk, and just like writing on a regular old chalkboard, I found it best to trace over the words once or twice to thicken the font. You don’t have worry about creating indents on the vinyl either, as I applied plenty of pressure with the chalk multiple times.
Bridal Shower Decor With Chalkboard Labels
Have fun with your labels! Change up the font style and draw little designs on it to show off your creativity!
Iced Tea Container
Whether indoors or outdoors, these labels are visible in any setting!
How To Clean The Chalkboard Label
And when you’re ready to clean it off, simply use a damp towel, sponge, or napkin and rub!
Washed Mason Jar and Label
These labels are much more durable than I gave them credit for at first. Not only can you remove them multiple times and reapply them if it comes out crooked, but they can get wet and will still hold to the item! I wouldn’t put them through the dish washer, but I was able to hand wash it and dry off without any trouble. The label comes out looking new again without a trace of the chalk or chalk marker!
Needless to say, I am super stoked about these labels and have my head spinning with ideas of where to place them next!
