WARNING: Your husband may see them simply as over-sized, over-priced srickers. :)

Back when I was thinking about how to do Allison's new big girl room, (that was almost a year ago, already!), I was wishing that some sort of peel-and-stick giant bubbles existed so I didn't have to paint them all over her room. Alas, I couldn't find any and even if they had existed, I probably couldn't find the exact colors I was looking for. But, it turned out to be a lot of fun to paint and has since created a desire in me to practice painting on walls! (My poor husband!).
Since then, however, I have come across a fun website that sells just the sort of thing I am talking about... peel-and-stick art for your walls. It's called Wallies, and it is a lot of fun! My favorite items are their giant flowers, as well as the fun chalkboards for kids rooms. They are a bit pricey, but do have an awesome clearance section as well as a wide variety of quality products. They even do entire wall murals, such as your favorite baseball park for little boys rooms.
I guess this is becoming more and more popular because I've also seen peel-and-stick wall art at Taret and Ikea. I spotted them at Ikea just in time... I was all ready to purchase these cool giant flowers from Wallies when I found almost identical flowers at Ikea for less than 1/3 of the price! Granted, they are not the same quality... but super cute, none-the-less! Here they are:
