Wall Decal Instructions

* A set of wall decal instructions are included will orders that contain wall decals. *


Please note Creative For Kids wall decals adhere to smooth, indoor surfaces like:

  • Smooth walls – (light orange peel is not considered smooth)
  • Painted drywall
  • Glass
  • Metal
  • Inside, temperature-controlled environments

Surfaces not recommended:

  • Freshly painted walls (Wait 30 days for paint to cure completely before putting up wall decals.)
  • Textured walls
  • Unpainted drywall
  • Brick or Cinder Block
  • Porous or textured paneling
  • Outside

Step 1: Unroll and relax your wall decals for at least 2 hours prior to application.

Step 2: Clean the walls using a warm damp cloth to wipe down the surface and then let dry completely. DO NOT use soap or cleaning solutions as they can make your decal stick poorly and potentially fall off.

Step 3: Find a friend to help. This is very important if you have one of our large decals or a character that has a lot of points, extensions, and curves. If you are applying a smaller decal you should be fine by yourself.

Step 4: Have a patient attitude…. Don’t be in a hurry or feel rushed. Relax, take your time and enjoy the process. It’s going to be fun!

Step 5: Cut each character out if included in a large sheet. With the help from your friend start at the top of your decal and carefully peel a small section from its backing paper. Now place that section on the wall and slowly smooth it into place using MINIMAL pressure. Continue peeling the backing paper down the decal as you smooth it into place. If you make a mistake, gently peel the decal off the wall and reposition it. Be mindful of corners or unique pointed sections in a character and proceed slowly to avoid stretching or tearing.

Step 6: Your Creative For Kids decal comes with a plastic squeegee. Use it to smooth out the character and remove bubbles and wrinkles. Always start in the middle of the decal and push out to the edges. Creative For Kids characters can have unique pointed areas like hair, small feet on birds, extended arms, etc. pay close attention any of these areas so that you don’t accidently swipe the squeegee over the area in the wrong direction and damage or peel that section of the character off the wall.

Step 7: If your decals need to be cleaned use a very damp cloth to wipe off surface dirt and dust.
