From travel stickers to those adorable decals from Etsy, there are so many options for decorating your stuff. You can go way beyond the standard things to put stickers on, embellishing everything from your college dorm to your pet paraphernalia. Get ready to make all your stuff just that much cuter.
Give Your Personal Stuff More Personality
The first place with a ton of sticker potential is your personal stuff. After all, if you're wondering where to put stickers, it's always best to start with things that belong only to you. These are the things that you see all the time, so you'll get the most enjoyment out of seeing stickers on these items.
- Water bottle
- Mug or cup
- Glasses case
- Flashlight or multi-tool
- Small organizer box or container
When you're thinking about where to put stickers, go for surfaces that are smooth. Make sure the item is clean and dry before you slap a sticker on it. Plastic, ceramic, glass, metal, and vinyl are all good options.
Show Off Your Stickers on the Go
One of the coolest options for showing off your sticker collection or just a couple super cute decals is however you get around. No matter what kind of transportation you use, you probably have some things to put stickers on that are related to it.
- Car windows and bumper
- Bike helmet
Sticker Up Your Sporting Goods
A lot of sporting goods have the perfect surface to put stickers on — smooth and flat. Slap some stickers on stuff like this.
- Surf board
- Golf cart
- Baseball bat
- Football equipment
Decorate Your Hobby Gear With Stickers
If you have art, music, or hobby gear, these items are another great thing to do with stickers. Put them on the items and tools you use to create or have fun.
- Guitar or musical instrument case
- Art supply box
- Paint palette

Wondering what to do with all those Apple stickers that are super cute and come with your phone or computer? They're perfect for showing off your brand loyalty on your hobby or school gear or anywhere else you might use a Mac.
Take Your Sticker Collection on the Road
Speaking of fun, travel items are great for stickers too. If you collect stickers from places you visit, you can slap them on your travel gear so you can enjoy them on your next trip.
- Cargo box for the car
- Hard-sided suitcase

Show Off Stickers at School or Work
If you're heading off to school or the office, you can decorate your supplies with stickers to add way more personality. This is a perfect way to give your sticker collection extra visibility.

- Pencil holder
- Dorm fridge
- Laptop or computer
- Lunch box
- Filing cabinet
If you're putting a sticker on something that doesn't really belong to you (like a locker or dorm desk), make sure you can get the sticker off again. Go for a vinyl sticker so it doesn't shred when you go to remove it.
Cook Up Something Cute With Stickers in the Kitchen
If you're wondering what to do with stickers you have around, look no further than your kitchen. It's the perfect place to find those smooth surfaces that stickers look great on.

- Water dispenser
Decorate the Rest of Your House
Even though the kitchen has a ton of sticker potential, it's not the only place to decorate with stickers. Put stickers on things in your bedroom, living room, bathroom, and anywhere else they can add a cheerful pop of fun.
- Planters and pots
- Lamps and light fixtures
- Lawn mower
Bring Stickers Into the Nursery or Playroom
Stickers are super playful, so they're perfect for decorating kids' stuff and kid spaces. Try them on these things.

Add Stickers to Pet Items
Whether you have a personalized sticker with your pet's name or just want to give your dog's food bowl more personality, stickers are the answer. You and your pet will both love these places to put stickers.
- Crate or bed
- Food and water bowl
- Bin of toys or leashes

Try Some Creative Things to Do With Stickers
Besides just sticking the stickers on things, you can use them to make something super creative and interesting. Try one of these ideas:
- Sticker album - You know how Gen X had sticker books? Well, make your own by putting stickers in an album. You can even jot down a few memories to go with each one.
- Memento box - If you need a place to keep your letters, photos and souvenirs, make a box for them. Cover a cardboard shoe box in your favorite stickers.
- Note cards - Turn plain notes into custom note cards by adding awesome stickers to the front. This gives you way more options for greeting cards than you would find in the store.
- Gift decorations - If you're giving a gift, seal the box with a sticker instead of tape. Or add a sticker to the wrapping paper to give it way more personality.
Add Tons of Personality With Stickers
There are so many options for where to put stickers that you really can't go wrong. As you long as you choose a surface that's smooth and clean, you can slap a sticker just about anywhere. Add tons of personality to every part of your life — from your water bottle to your dog's dish.
