To begin with, if the wall behind the wallpaper has been previously painted or primed it will make it much easier to remove but if it is unpainted drywall that is when the job becomes more difficult. The reason that I start by telling you this is because if you attempt to remove wallpaper from unpainted drywall it can easily damage the wall by tearing the top layer off of the drywall. If this occurs you will then have to repair the wall with joint compound which is a completely different project all together. Just remember, after you remove the first section of wallpaper from the wall and if the wall is unpainted you will need to take extra care so as not to cause any damage to the wall.
There are so many other resourceful and fun ways to use old wallpaper. One of the more creative ways I have found is to make a jigsaw puzzle. Simply take the wallpaper, wet the back and attach it to a sturdy piece of cardboard. Cut out the pieces from there to make the puzzle that you want to make. Leftover wallpaper is good as decoration for paneled furniture as well. Many have applied wallpaper to the backs of such things as bookcases and entertainment centers, thereby adding more color and dynamism to the room.
In extreme cases where the wallpaper does not seem to be coming off of the wall, you may have to add one more step to this process. Use a scoring tool to score the wallpaper in order for the wallpaper removal solution to penetrate. Let this be a last resort because many times you can damaged the drywall when you score the wallpaper.
