    Default How can I keep these wall decals from falling off my wall?

    We bought wall decals for my daughters room and stuck them to a piece of glass when we moved. Now I have put them on her new walls but they keep falling off. I know they claim to be re-usable, but I don't know if their is a way to get them to stick better or if I just need to buy new ones. Any advice?

    Clean with soap and water, let dry.

    Decals and stickers prefer very smooth surface, like the glass. They are not so happy on a textured surface like your walls.

    I have forgotten what it is called, but a crafts store should have a certain glue or paste that will hold something in place without being permanent. That is how layout editors used to prepare camera-ready artwork. Or, you might use some double-sided tape.
