Temporary wallpaper ideas – from peel and stick wallpaper to using wrapping paper and double-sided tape. There’s something for everyone (and every budget!)

Temporary Wallpaper Ideas
Wall decals are probably the easiest option that exists. You can do it all by yourself, and all you need is a ruler to help you measure and keep lines straight (if you are doing something geometric.) Plus, I can attest that removable vinyl is super easy to take off walls. No problemo.
Peel and stick wallpaper is all the rage now, and I don’t think this is a trend. With so many options and considering how easy this is to remove when you’re ready to redecorate, why would anyone go back to the permanent kind?
