3 Ways to Use Wall Decals
Inject some fun into your space with fun and catchy accents
Using wall decals is an easy way to instantly spruce up a wall. You don’t need to drill holes to hang a frame nor hire a painter for a perfect finish. All you have to do is peel and stick these self-adhesive beauties.
The ease of wall decal application, however, may tempt you to just follow what’s illustrated on the packaging. Feel free to experiment and personalize these stickers, and turn your walls into your very own works of art.

Use it to define an area.
If you have a blank white wall and you don’t have the luxury of time to work with wallpaper, fill it up with decals. Pick a design that has a vertical orientation, like a tree or a tower, and surround it with stickers with different designs to liven up an area.
Frame your decals.
Do you have tons of unused photo frames? Remove the backing and glass, place your chosen decals inside the frames, then mount them onto your wall using 3M Mounting Tape. This is a welcome break from the usual photos and prints that are on display at home.
Create your own theme.
Showcase your passions and interests by turning your wall into a huge vision board. Create a vignette filled with things that you love and knickknacks that represent your dreams. You may place it near your nightstand or randomly on your wall for a fun, playful vibe.
