When it comes to decorating my kids’ bedrooms I like creating my own wall art because it’s cheap, I can get the kids involved, and it’s original. Here are 3 simple projects that are fun to make and can add some color and intrigue in your kids’ bedrooms.
- Wooden Letters
- Mini Animal Canvases
- Magnet Board
1. Wooden Letters
I bought wooden letters for a few dollars at Michaels and then let my girls each pick out a piece of scrapbook paper to cover them with. I traced the letters on the scrapbook paper and used Modge Podge adhesive to attach the paper to the letters. I decided they needed a little more definition above the bunk beds, so I found these large crochet circles and painted them to add more dimension and interest. Total cost: $15.
2. Mini Animal Canvases
To make this fun animal art I bought a set of 3x3” canvasses at Michaels and also a tub of small animal figurines. I painted each of the canvasses with acrylic paints I had from a previous project, and used a hot glue gun to attach the animals to each canvas. Total cost: $20
3. Magnet Board
We already had some magnetic letters so those were the first to go up on the new magnet board. I took some of the kids’ sturdy cardboard puzzle pieces, and attached adhesive magnetic strips to the back of for fun. Lastly, I printed and cut out photos of family members, laminated them and attached magnetic strips to the back. The kids like looking at the pictures and have started spelling out the names of each family member using the letters next to them. The possibilities are endless with magnets! Total cost: $20
