Review of Icon Wall Stickers

by Alli

This is a sponsored post for Icon Wall Stickers. All opinions are my own. 

A while back we gutted our kitchen/fellowship hall at our church and I redesigned the entire space. It was so much fun picking out new cabinets, stainless steel appliances, and granite countertops for the kitchen. I love decorating and choosing lamps, chairs, wall decor, etc. for the fellowship side.  

There is one awkward wall that needs something but just didn’t look right no matter what I did. So it was left relatively unadorned.

Review of Icon Wall Stickers

A couple of weeks ago, I received an email from Icon Wall Stickers asking me to review their product in exchange for a free wall sticker. Well, they had me at free!  

I enjoy visiting their online store and going through all their different designs.  I almost chose a kid’s room wall sticker for my grandkids, but then I quickly realized that since I could only choose one design, the rest of the kids would be left out.  And I’m all about playing fair. And I’m all about giving an honest opinion in this review.

A Wall Sticker For The Awkward Wall At My Church

Then it hit me like a ton of bricks: Pick out something and donate it to the church for that awkward wall space. I have to admit that it was hard to pick out just one. I love every wall sticker Bible verse on the site. Decisions, decisions.

Finally, I did find something I really love.Icon Wall Sticker - Finished Product On The Wall

Customize Icon Wall Stickers

It’s so neat that I can customize the wall icon with the color, size, etc. of my choice. I chose the dark gray lettering since the wall is light gray.

The dimensions I chose are 175cm (W) x 116cm (H) (approx. 5’9″ x 3’9″). And it arrived via UPS within just a few days!

I recruited my son-in-law (as always) to help me because just between you and me, I can never hang anything straight on the wall and I always have to use a level and even then . . . !  I can’t write or cut straight, either. It’s just a quirky problem I have.

Simple Instructions

After reading the simple instructions, we began to apply the wall sticker. The biggest problem we had was finding a roll of tape to position the sticker on the wall. We were all out of painter’s tape and had to resort to whatever we could find.  But it all worked out.

It took us about 30 minutes from start to finish (besides looking for that elusive roll of tape).

The wall sticker comes in one large piece.

After positioning the icon exactly as we wanted it, we taped across the front with a long piece of tape, folded the front part (with letters attached) down toward us, and cut away the backing down to the piece of tape.

Tape was applied across the middle of the icon so that we could remove the top and then the bottom. Easy, peasy instructions!

Then we did the same for the bottom half.  The front overlay with the letters was pressed back against the wall (instructions are much easier than me trying to explain it).  

We then rubbed out all the bubbles with our debit cards.  We removed the overlay carefully to make sure the letters were sticking to the wall and not pulling away.Pressing out the bubbles on the letters. It really didn't take long at all.

I think it’s the perfect fit for that awkward space.

The icon wall sticker was easy and fun to put up. I would do it again in a heartbeat!  

As a matter of fact, my son-in-law asked for the website so he could check it out.  You should, too!

I saw it a couple weeks ago & LOVED it. Now that I know it’s was FREE, makes me even happier because it proves yet again that we walk in the FOG (favor of God).

That did turn out great. I would have had to recruit help also. That is a very large wall sticker set!

It is large and really makes a statement and turned out even better than I had hoped. I should have taken a picture from across the great big room. Oh, well. 🙂

Oh Alli – this is gorgeous. We need new vinyl for the kids’ rooms now that we are in the new house. I love the size!

I love the size, too. Anything smaller would have looked lost on that wall.

That looks very nice, and I love the verse you chose. Isn’t it the kitchen where most gossiping happens, I good reminder not to!

Anna, I thought the same thing about the kitchen area! It is a nice reminder.

This looks great, love how the verse is laid out. I just won a wall sticker from Icon and can’t wait to get it up in the nursery we are decorating. Seems pretty simple. Thanks for sharing.

It’s really easy! The main thing was to pull the overlay off very slowly. Every once in a while a letter would try to stay on the overlay instead of on the wall. Then you just press & rub some more and it pulls off easily. Looking forward to seeing your nursery icon.

I have seen some of these wall stickers at different places (like the pediatricians office) and found them very intriguing. What a cool way to decorate your walls with some real meaning. the possibilities seem endless. I will be checking out Icon. 🙂

The company that sponsored the post has so many choices and most of them look really cool. It was a hard decision!
