Vinyl Lettering

I apologize if this belongs in "craft chat."

I applied vinyl wall art to DD's room this afternoon, and it is already peeling off I followed all instructions and cleaned the wall first etc. it is textured...Help please? Anyone have tips/tricks for getting the falling parts to stay? Tia

3M spray on adhesive At least that's what I used to spray on rubber backed duct insulation on a car. Might be an overkill but never had a problem. They have different strength...not sure which is best for a wall though.

Thanks, I might try that. I'm hesitant because I've used it before and the overspray made the wall shiny and sticky. Maybe I can find something similar that you brush on?

Maybe one of these thin double sided tape? Not sure if it'd be a complicated task.

Re: Vinyl Lettering

I would just stick some double sided tape under there. It might take the paint off later. Bit, though.

Re: Vinyl Lettering

I used a glue stick. The ones on my kids bathroom walls are still on 3 years later but if I take one down there's no paint damage.

Thank you all! I'm going to try the glue stuck tomorrow since that's what I have. If that doesn't work I'll buy some double sided tape. Thanks again!
