We're used to decorating walls with decals, but there are so many creative places for wall stickers. Here are ten unique wall decal placements that you may not have considered.
1. Your can apply wall decals to paper lanterns or lamp shades. We have a number of small wall decals that would be perfect for this application, including polka dot wall decals, stars wall decals, and heart wall decals. Animals would also be a cute addition.
2. Full length mirrors and closet door mirrors make great surfaces for wall decals. Try some small flower wall decals in the corner or maybe a butterfly or a ladybug wall decal walking up the sides.
3. We've seen quite a bit of antique window decor lately. They create a lovely natural frame from for wall decals.
4. Furniture such as dressers, bookshelves, chairs, and craft tables make great places for wall decals. We think nature wall decals would be a nice choice, but any type could work since there is so much space to work with. This is also a great way to hide nicks and other imperfections on your furniture.
5. You can also put a personalized wall decal on your child's bedroom door or perhaps a little detail that matches their room decor.
6. Wall decals on the ceiling are a delightful surprise. We think raindrops and bubbles would be especially lovely soaring overhead.
7. Your refrigerator, toaster, washer and dryer—these are all fun places to personalize your home with wall decals. We think our penguin wall decals would look particularly adorable on the refrigerator.
8. Some of our smaller sets of decals would lend themselves well to gift wrapping. Our polka dot wall decals, flower wall decals, and star wall decals come with multiple tiny pieces and you could use one or two decals per package. You can also write or draw on our decals with a marker.
9. Wall decals work well on lunch boxes, and you can use our 2-inch type decals to personalize your child's lunch.
10. weeDECOR wall decals also look great in picture frames, and if you don't have any empty picture frames we also sell wall decal picture frames as well. You can purchase them with our without your family photos printed inside.
Oh, the fun of polka dot décor! There are so many ways to decorate with polka dots as they can be used in the design of a boy’s
room—or, if baby’s gender is a surprise, they can work for a gender neutral

Have twins? We’re loving this gender neutral nursery
with confetti style polka dots
sprinkled on the wall. The fun color combo of aqua, red, and yellow makes the look that much more festive. The red and white striped curtains add to the charm as do the animals in the crib and the ball on the floor. We can’t help but think “circus” when seeing this room.
If red has caught your eye as well, check out this bold red, yellow, and grey polka dot bedding set
from our favorite fashion forward, big-box retailer Target
. Also incorporating the confetti style, you need little other décor in the room with this bedding set as it is such a stand out.

Note that your polka dot décor doesn’t need to have all of the same sized dots. See how this mom used weeDECOR polka dot wall decals to design a one-of-a-kind ceiling border. The lime green, orange, brown and yellow color palette in conjunction with different arrangements of circles and dots lends itself to a fresh, cheery look.
In considering polka dots as decorative accents, DIYers can rejoice in a fun wall art
project using a simple pencil eraser and colored ink. See Carla Liu’s blog
to see how to create designs. This also looks like a fun project in which to get your toddler involved in the decorating fun.

We are VERY excited to share with you one of the prettiest nurseries we've seen featuring our nursery wall decals
. This bold and beautiful modern nursery features lime green, bright orange
, and striking white and yellow against neutral toned paint and furniture to create a baby's room that will make any little one smile. As always, we asked mom where she found her inspiration and how she went about decorating her little one's room to get that stylish look she sought and that you may be seeking, too.
Mom tells weeDECOR, "I suppose it started with the bedding. Trying to find baby bedding that is gender neutral and not standard pale green is challenging. I knew I wanted the room to be bright and fun, so when we found the lime green
and bright orange
bedding, I was thrilled. From there I spent countless hours searching the Internet looking at gender neutral nursery ideas. When I came across a photo with polka dot wall decals on a ceiling
on weeDECOR, it was just about re-creating the look in our home's existing color pallet. The fact that weeDECOR was willing to create the custom decals in the sizes, colours, and quantities I wanted was so incredibly helpful, and allowed me to add a few of our own ideas into the design above the moulding."
We were so glad we could help mom with a version of our polka dot wall decals
that she used near her ceiling. We love the variety of colors and circular shapes that border the room and create that wonderful, whimsical nursery feel.
Mom painted the baby room walls with Benjamin Moore's "Ranchwood
" and the trim in "Stone Brown
". Her furniture is from West Coast Kids
in Edmonton, Canada as is her glider, bedding and hanging wall art featuring a lion, monkey, and giraffe. Grandma added her personal touch by making the blanket hanging over the crib.
Mom's wall decals are, of course, eco-friendly fabric nursery wall decals by weeDECOR. Mom selected our 6 foot whimsical tree wall decal, and surrounded it with our smiling giraffe
, modern elephant
, and lion wall decals
. She created a gorgeous ceiling border with a custom version of our polka dot wall decals
Mom further told us, "After looking at so many rooms online, I thought the ones that looked the best used wall decals in a scene as opposed to just placing them on the wall. Additionally, I liked rooms that had different depths and textures on the walls. I felt they had more character. With that in mind, we searched for some jungle themed accessories and found the giraffe, lion and monkey. Now …. what to put above the change table????? The search continues...
Thank you again for all your help. It was a pleasure working with weeDECOR. I especially loved it when I opened my package to find out you had sent me a few extra small decals to fill the space between the large decals I had ordered instead of just leaving the gaps blank. That was a nice touch."
Thank you, mom, for sharing your gorgeous, modern nursery with our readers.
