10 Creative Ways To Use Wall Stickers


Are there some things you end up saying repeatedly every day? Well save your voice and try using a sticker instead. Whether it’s a reminder for people to take their shoes off by the front door, put the toilet seat down or to wash their hands properly a wall sticker can act as a prompt so you don’t have too.

Personalising Your Child's Bike

While you can theoretically name any item than a smooth, flat and nonporous items putting your child’s name on their bike is a great way for people to see at a glance who it belongs too. There are lots of wall stickers for kids that will add some personality to the bike as well making sure they love it even more.

Christmas and Easter Decorations

I’ve used wall stickers for Christmas decorations every year because they look great and they are pretty child safe. Whether you want to stick them on a wall, window or door wall stickers are an easy way to help decorate your house for any occasion including Christmas, Easter and Birthdays.

Brighten Up Furniture

There are lots of ways you can transform furniture with the help of wall stickers, from subtle designs using small stickers to cut to measure repeating patterns that you can entirely cover drawer or cupboard fronts with. They instantly upgrade basic furniture bringing in colour and fun. You could even use wall stickers on your kitchen appliances!

Whether you have them as a fun place for children to get creative or you use them for meal planning the stickers are really easy to put up (and remove if you decide you no longer want them).

Get Organised

Do your children always forget which toys go away in which box? Do they forget which drawer has tops in and which trousers? Or maybe you want to remind them which cupboard belongs to each child?  Well you can easily create personalised wall stickers in a huge variety of fonts and styles so whether you want one saying “LEGO”, “T-shirts” or “Peter’s things” it’s easy to do.

Wall Clock

Combining an easy way to makeover a space with something practical you can get a big variety of wall stickers in the style of a clock and then add on a mechanism so it actually tells the time. Really easy and no need to hang anything permanent on your wall.

Photo Frames

If you like to put photographs up on the wall, but want something more original than normal frames how about a photo backdrop with spaces for photos. No drill or nails, just use blue tack or washi tape or other adhesive to keep photos in place.

House Number On Rubbish Bins

If you always have a bit of a scramble on bin day to make sure you get your bins back (rather than those broken or unwashed ones) then it’s worth putting your address, or at least house number, on your bins. Wall stickers are an easy way to do this and as long as you apply them properly the stickers should stay firmly attached whatever the weather.

How To Get The Most Out Of Wall Stickers

To ensure best results from your wall stickers always follow the instructions from the seller. Make sure the surface is clean and try, don't apply to newly painted surfaces and just take your time. I have found they are really easy to remove from glass and our IKEA cupboards. On painted walls they sometimes leave a little bit of adhesive which needs cleaning off, and sometimes they can peel paint off, especially if I am peeling too quickly. It will depend on the paint surface, how long they have been up and the brand of wall sticker.
