I know that you can use a blow dryer to remove stickers, but you might need to take a putty knife to it! You can always repaint the wall :)

If it is a wall paper border, mix fabric softener and warm water in a spray bottle. spray it on and let it sit for a few minutes. It should peel off. If they are actual stickers use a blow dryer to heat the glue and then peel them off.

If it's flat wall paint, afraid no matter what you do will leave marks, so be prepared. You'll probably have to sand the wall & touch-up the area w/ paint after removal. But, if the paint is a shiny gloss finish, swab the decals w/ a mixture of water & fabric softener & let it soak in well. This should loosen them enough to gently peel off. (Use your fingers. A scraper will do just that - scrape & scratch the paint.) If there is any gooey glue residue left on the wall afterward, you can dab it w/ vegetable oil then wipe it off w/ a cotton ball.

Goo Off. Takes off anything with adhesive and will not damage your walls. Also, go to howto.com and you will get step-by-step instructions or just read the instructions on the bottle.

Just take some mayonnaise and coat it on the stickers and let it sit for awhile then gently peel the stickers off and take a paper-towel or cloth and wipe the mayonnaise off the wall and wallah! Hope that helps you, if you see this.

I have run into this problem before if you use a blow dryer and heat up the stencil or sticker. use a spatula to scrape it off. It will take a while, But it should come off. Not all of it will come off. Use a magic eraser, or Goo Gone to get it off :). Hope this helps you!
