I didn't want posters all over their walls, making holes, so the only option out there is wall decals! I am a huge fan of wall decals. They are easy, fun, don't damage the walls, can look so much more amazing than a picture or poster and last untill you are sick of them and really want to change your decor. Even then you just peel them off and start over. No muss to fuss.
Kristina is a huge soccer fan, she has played for a year now and loves it. She begged and begged for soccer wall decals and the only place we could find something soccer related was at Dezign with a Z. They had a few to choose from, this really cool one of a girl, or they is a boy one as well, kicking the soccer ball. She finally decided on just the soccer balls. She was so surprised that you could get the soccer balls in any combo of colors, you didn't have to go with just black and white. She did end up going with just black and white, classic, but it was pretty cool that you could have pink soccer balls.
She has been nothing but thrilled with the soccer balls, everyone who comes over gets hauled upstairs and she shows off her soccer balls to them, anyone who will look! I am thrilled with how they turned out. They were so easy to install. After dinner one night we went to town. They came in two sheets, each with 16 soccer balls on them so we cut out, each ball, very roughly, and sorted them into piles. Then we started with the biggest ones and put those up throughout her room.
All you do is peel off the white side, rub the decal on the wall, it came with a great plastic card like piece to rub with, you can also use a credit card, and you rub it on the wall really good. Then you peel off the plastic side. So easy to do and you don't touch the sticky side of the decal at all which ensures that it doesn't lose its stickiness. I like to rub the decal again once the plastic is off, just to ensure a good clean stick. You want to make sure that you start with nice clean dry walls, and if they are freshly painted you want to wait at least a week to ensure its totally dry.
3 out of 4 of Kristinas walls are regular painted drywall walls but one is brick. We put a few decals on the brick but it was a lot trickier to do as brick is a lot more textured. The ones we did put on the brick have stuck just as well as the others but I didn't want to do to many just in case it didn't work!
