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.

Light switches are in every room of the house, so why not make them stand out a bit! Using wallpaper cut perfectly to size and placed over light switches, your eyes will thank you late at night when they need to find the switch and are drawn to the colorful designs.
Clip boards aren’t just for sideline coaches and doctors offices anymore. They make for great office organization too! Change them up with wallpaper and hang them above your desk for some pretty wall decor.
Gotta love Ikea, but if you can’t find a lamp shade that suites your design needs, create your own! Change up their plain white lamp shades by removing the material and then covering it with wallpaper!
And let’s not forget bedrooms in this DIY category! Headboards are a perfect item to spice up with fun wallpapers. Using a giant canvas as the headboard, this colorful yellow lattice wallpaper ties together all the colors in this master bedroom.
Decorative pillows and throws shouldn’t be the only items with patterns and designs. Since our beds draw the most attention in the bedroom, their headboards should be just as eye catching! This green and white bird themed wallpaper adds just the right amount of pattern without overpowering the lovely bedding.
If the idea of covering an entire wall in wallpaper scares you, why not try wallpapered panels! Using panels or plywood, add contrasting wallpaper designs to them to to give your wall plenty of color without making your eyes lost in one pattern.
Because I am not a big fan of painting furniture, the idea of applying removable wallpaper to a piece to make it look like a million bucks for only dollars sounds like an excellent alternative! This DIY project didn’t just apply the adorable fox wallpaper to the front of the drawers, but added some to the sides as well to make the dresser stand out from all angels of the room!
Leaving your dresser drawers open and exposed never looked so good! By adding wallpaper to the inside lining of drawers, no one will even notice your clothes hanging out or miscellaneous items scattered everywhere because they’ll be too interested in the pretty wallpaper designs!
While adding decorative items on top of shelves and cabinets can make the furniture item stand out, sticking wallpaper to it will enhance it even more! Shown here in alternating wallpaper designs, this bookshelf is anything but boring.
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.

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!
This weekend I decided to update my family’s uninviting front door and steps! Using items we had from around the house, in the yard, and at Wallums.com this DIY project literally took me all of 20 minutes to complete, and the transformation is still impressive!
My first eye grabbing item chosen for this project was the 4″ Hello Door Decal from Wallums Wall Decor for $9.99, and I decided on the color White to make it stand out from the street. To get the door ready for installation, I wiped the area off with a damp towel to remove any dust and cob webs, and waited for it to dry completely before applying the decal.
After removing the design from the backing paper and placing it against the door, I applied firm pressure with my squeegee provided with each Wallums order, and then again with my fingers to make sure all the letters were free of any air bubbles and evenly adhered to the door.
It’s so easy to get excited and want to ripe off the transfer paper like a band-aid from a boo boo, but it’s important to take your time! If the letters stick to the transfer paper when peeling it back and not to the door (and a few of them did as I went about it), simply lay the paper back down against the door and run the squeegee over again until you get it to stick. I found it best to peel the transfer paper at an angle rather than straight across from right to left.
Hello Door Decal
With this new crisp and white decal, I picked other white and fresh looking items like the flowers and water kettle.
And there you have it! An old door and lonely steps get a new face lift for under $10 and 20 minutes!
