Decal Surname on Wall

Place on a family room wall, in the kitchen, a dining room, the hall way, above the entrance doorway or arch into the dining room – where ever in your house you would want a permanent family seal. In craft shops and online dealers have numerous vinyl decals, in various colors, shapes, fonts and sizes that can be easily arranged on a wall.

The key is to come up with an impressive design – keeping it simple but one that makes a statement.

It can be the head of household monogram¬†initials, a husband-wife initials or all family members initials. decal-lettersAnother is to have the family surname written out. Add to that when the family was established – either the original ancestor’s arrival in America or their birth date or the family in the house – their wedding year. You could have the family name and then an arch with the given names of family members.
