I’ve got this big blank wall in my entryway that is just begging to be covered with bold, printed wallpaper. And while removable wallpaper is certainly a viable option for me as a renter, the idea of hanging it on my own — lining up the pattern just right — gives me decorating anxiety.

Removable wall decals have long been fixtures of children’s nurseries, but the ease of their application has inspired both indie makers and large-scale retailers to develop grown-up versions — think matte-finish palm fronds in lieu of sparkly, rearing unicorns. If you want to create the look of wallpaper, without all the effort it takes to install it, consider these 13 removable decals.
