LOL Siobhan, lots of ideas, I did them last year on the glass blocks that you put little lights in and I did them on jars for candle holders at Christmas. Yes, on the transfer tape, much, much easier.

What do you mean it doesn't stick, doesn't stick to your walls or any walls?

The vinyl itself is sticky but my walls don't hold it.

What type of walls do you have? I have a knock down finish. Want to cut out some stuff for the girls room walls.

orange peel. thats what I have. if you stick the vinyl on and then warm it with a hair dryer- its supposed to "grab" the texture a bit and stay on. I have some from costco that I have had up for a few years. its peeling on a a few edges, but not bad. I bet you could get stuff to stay, Siobhan

We call that "ouch mom and val textured it" bumpy
Mom and I textured her living room walls and the first wall (behind the couch where you put your arm up) we got a bit sharp. Have scrapped plenty of skin off on that wall.

I'll have to try that. We had one of those huge big head things and it wouldn't stay up for nothing. Thanks for the tip.

Painters tape sticks to our walls but it still bleeds a bit

Ok done with a little more assembly of the things that go on the Christmas cards, now debating if I should start cutting out the stuff for DD, all the bday party stuff, or if I should fix a bowl of ice cream.
