    Regluing the lifted wallpaper is so much easier than removing and replacing it. Unless the paper is badly torn or ripped I'd simply work some adhesive under the edge of the paper then roll or squeegee the paper flat. You can even use a thinned mixture of elmers white glue applied to an artist brush. Apply a little more than is needed and squeegee out the excess. That way you're certain to get as much coverage for the glue as possible.

    You may want to take off the wallpaper some day, so I would not 'glue' it with glue. I have had this happen before and made a paste of flour and water. This makes a kind of paste similar to wallpaper paste. Just paint a little under the paper with a small brush. I paint a layer on both the wall and the paper.
