Fathead-Larger Than Life, For Real

Please note: In exchange for this review, we received a Fathead of our choice through Canopi to display in our home. No further compensation was received; all opinions expressed are my own.
I’ve always been curious about Fathead, but never took the plunge to look into one…until now!

As a promotion through Canopi, Fathead recently gave 25 bloggers the chance to review their very own Fathead of choice, in a Larger Than Life, For Real campaign.

It’s no secret that my husband is an LSU fan - he even has his own game room dedicated to LSU (we call it his man cave). A few years ago, I painted every room in our home – except his game room. We attempted to find wall colors that matched his room décor but were unsuccessful. What better object to use on the open wall of his room than a larger than life Fathead?

The Fathead arrived in a triangle shaped box and was wrapped tight. Along with the Fathead itself, we also received a utensil to help apply the Fathead to the wall. The borders of the picture also included several smaller LSU emblems/logos which was a nice touch!

After carefully reading the instructions (which said to allow the Fathead to lie flat on the ground for several hours prior to application), we removed the photo and attempted to hang it on the wall. Notice I said “attempted”.

Despite a few mishaps…yeah, THAT happened….

…with just a little bit of teamwork, we were able to apply the eye of the tiger to the wall without any problems!  The Fathead image actually peeled apart without much effort. We also didn’t have it straight at first so we had to reposition it a few times – and still, our Fathead stuck like a charm!

We smoothed out the photo…

Then posed for a picture with our beautiful new Fathead!

In all, the application process took about 30 minutes or so, plus time for the Fathead to lay flat for several hours.

That’s one happy LSU fan! :0)

He also applied the extra stickers to his door/wall of his game room!

Check out this collage of other bloggers who were a part of this campaign and their Fathead’s of choice. I love the portrait ones! Who knew Fathead created more than just sports emblems? I didn’t until now. Some of the photos to choose from are absolutely beautiful! You can even upload and order your OWN photo of choice…the possibilities are endless! As a runner, I can envision so many different ways to utilize Fathead on my “medal wall”. I’m definitely going to look into another Fathead in the near future!

I’d say overall, our Fathead of choice was a huge success! We’ve received a ton of compliments and everyone absolutely loves it!

Have you used Fathead as a décor option in your home? What photo/emblem did you choose?
