- Use a credit card/applicator to remove any air bubbles or creases from the sticker.
- Apply a few pieces of masking tape to the top of your wall sticker to create a hinge (As Shown).
- Measure up where you want to place your wall sticker. When you are happy, attach to the wall by the masking tape.
- Keep the top transfer tape away from your wall. When you are ready and keeping the transfer tape tense start to push it into the wall as shown

How to Remove Wall Decals– Step by Step
Vinyl wall stickers and decals have grown more and more popular in recent years, and it’s no surprise. But there will come a time when you need to remove them either when you’re moving house or just want to switch up – can you remove wall stickers without damaging the paint underneath? Here’s how to remove wall decals easily and without fuss.
You will need:
- A hairdryer
- A little patience
The most important thing to bear in mind when you learn how to remove wall stickers is the effect of the adhesive on the painted wall. This will depend on the quality of the adhesive and how long the sticker has been on the wall. Many wall decals are not designed to be left up for too long, but rather than losing its effectiveness as it grows older, the adhesive grows stronger and may even start to soak into the paint. This won’t just mean that the sticker is harder to remove – it makes it more likely to leave a residue on the wall as well. So removing a vinyl wall decal that’s been on the wall for a while will be easier if you loosen it first by applying heat.
Follow these steps
- Turn on your hairdryer at the lowest setting to begin with. Start with a small section of the sticker, holding the hairdryer between five and eight inches away from the wall, and test the temperature of the surface with your hand every few second. When it feels warm to the touch, switch the hairdryer off – if the adhesive heats up too much it’ll become tacky and may not come away when you remove the vinyl wall decal.
- Now gently peel back a corner of the sticker. It should come easily away from the wall; if it doesn’t, bring the hairdryer back for a few more seconds and try again.
- Continue peeling the decal off the wall, applying the heat from the hairdryer to each section as needed. Work slowly to avoid causing damage to the paint underneath – this is where that patience comes in, especially if you’re trying to learn how to remove wall quote decals which are likely to have a more complex shape or design.
So there you have it – how to remove vinyl wall decals.
Remember, if you haven’t used this kind of product on your paintwork before then it’s a good idea to test it on an inconspicuous area first. That way you will know how to remove wall word decals and other wall stickers without damaging the paintwork beneath.
