Saving Wall Stickers

Does any one know if you can save the peel and stick stickers you put on walls? We are moving and I don't want to leave behind the princess and cars stickers we spent money on.

What can I do next?

So What Happened?™

Thank You for all the ideas. I love this site. It is so helpful. I am going to attempt to attache them to my laundry baskets. I thought maybe I would run down to Hobby Lobby and see what they might have to put them on. I am a mother of 6 and hate to just waste money like that, the stickers are only a month old. Thank you all for your help.

Peel them off and stack them between sheets of waxed paper, then put them in a big plastic baggie or grocery sack. HTH!

I stuck mine on a laminated poster we have & they made the cross-country move just fine!

I managed to save most of my sons....By sticking them to a plastic birthday banner, BUT you might try wax paper (try one at a time) or foil. I am not sure what the banner was made out of exactly.

Use a wet (not dripping, but fairly wet) washcloth and an iron on a medium setting. I've done it to take wall paper off, and it worked well. Place the washcloth over the sticker (start at edges and work in) and iron it, the steam will melt the glue, and it won't damage your picture or the wall.
As a side note, this is the best method I've found for removing crayon from textured walls as well.

The ones I have say you cannot save them and re-use, but I bet you could with wallpaper glue.

You can heat them with a hair dryer and slowly peel them from the wall.

Attach them to a piece of wax paper *wax side* and the put them in a bag for transportation.

This works with bumper/window stickers as well.

Hi M.,
I think it depends on the brand/type of decals you used. If they're the flexible decal type that are like the ones that go on windows they are able to be used over and over but if they're the peel & stick or "lick" & stick like wallpaper, they usually aren't reusable.
I do murals, stenciling, faux & face painting and would be happy to help in that way if you ever need it! I specialize in kids rooms & you can see my info under the recently reviewed business area of mamasource "R.'s Creations" and I can also be seen on Angie's List. Good luck to you!

I moved my wall stickers from our rental house to the house we bought a few months ago. The only thing that didn't stick to and ruin them was the original paper they were on. Waxed paper didn't work (that was my husband's idea). I did stick a BUNCH of them on plastic tubs and dirty clothes hampers, and that worked. But we were only moving 1/2 a mile away. We made several trips.
I also tried the paper that some vinyl clings came on. When I peeled the stickers off of them, they curled up. When I stuck them on the wall, they would pop off and curl up. We are still sticking them down every day, 5 months later. At least, those are the ones that haven't fallen off.
I had a bunch of pink and green retro dots that I moved from my kitchen to the new laundry room. They're starting to fall off now, 5 months later.

I don't know if yours are small like mine or huge, but I'm about ready to toss ours. We bought ours at the Dollar Store, so I'm not that partial to them. Even $1 adds up fast, but after the pain in the rear they were to move, and now that they're falling down...I'm just about done!
