WiseDecor Tutorial and Giveaway

wise decor wall quotes title

Do you ever look at your walls and think, “Hmmm…something is missing…”? You want to put something up on the blank wall…but you just don’t know what?  I was thinking that very thing about my office wall when I got an email from WiseDecor. And my problem was solved!

WiseDecor Decorative Lettering offers an inexpensive and new way to decorate your walls – with vinyl wall decals. Letters, quotes, words; the sky is the limit at WiseDecor because you can create your own, or choose from an extensive list of ideas. You can choose the size and the font of all their ideas, or come up with your own!

I knew that I wanted to put something inspirational on the wall of my office when WiseDecor contacted me. I have several favorite quotes these days, but this one really speaks to me:

“Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try.”

I’ve always been one of those people who is too scared to try. I’m worried I’m not good enough, or that I’ll fail, so I don’t. But a few years ago I decided to start a blog…and now look where I am. I made the decision to try…and now I’ve got this whole new job and way of life, and it’s amazing.

Anyway, I really like that quote, so I wanted it on my wall. 🙂

Now, vinyl lettering works best on flat walls. There are a range of wall textures out there and flat is the best. I have the worst texture offender: Orange Peel. I was going to put the decal on a piece of wood and hang it as a sign but then I decided to see if decals could be put on textured walls and everything I read said yes, with some elbow grease. So I decided to give it a go!

First you need a ruler, level, pencil, and your decal.

I marked on the wall with the pencil where I wanted the decal to go.

Then I removed the backing and taped the quote to the wall.

Then I rubbed with the rubbing tool. Hard. This is where the elbow grease comes in. If you’re dealing with a textured wall, you need to work the vinyl sticky into every little nook and cranny with your tool. You can also use your fingers.

Do a little at a time and then peel back the paper very slowly. As I peeled, some of the little edges came up, so I just stuck it back to the wall and went over it again with the tool and my fingers, then peeled slowly again. Don’t just rip off the paper – go SLOW!

Once you work up a sweat (believe me, I totally did!) you have a gorgeous wall decoration!

Now, every time I look at my office wall, I can be reminded that I shouldn’t be scared to try – because an accomplishment can follow!

{I am reminded of this daily as I write this cookbook. OMG, I’m in recipe fail hell.}

These decals would be a great addition to any wall – and they make great gifts!
