Princess Wall Mural Ideas
With spring and the holidays here, you might be turning your thoughts to a bit of simple decorating.
Chances are your little girl may aready have lots of pink things in her bedroom.
How about bringing all that pink together in a Princess theme?
Create a Princess room for your little girl with a simple mural as a focal point.
Do it yourself murals are simple and easy to create and can add that WOW factor to an otherwise rather plain pink’ room.
Here are some murals that may inspire you to give it a go.
Paint by number murals are very easy to do, as are adhesive stencil murals, and if you really don’t want to paint, there are always sticker murals, but for this post I’ll be concentrating on how to paint a Princess mural yourself.

Kid’s Bedroom Decor Idea – Dinosaur Adventure
Decorating your kid’s bedroom is great fun for parents and children. One popular decor idea for sons or daughters is a dinosaur adventure motif. Many young boys love dinosaurs and other prehistoric beasts.
Make A Dinosaur Pillow/Pyjama bag
Kids can make their own pillow the shape of the popular dinosaur.
All you need is a piece of felt, some ribbon and glue. It’s all no sew and by following our pattern and easy instructions they can make one or make two back to back; one to be a little pillow and the other to make a pajama bag – just leave the top open and add a “handle”. They can be the envy of their friends at the next sleep over.

Summer tweets Bird mobile
I just love anything to do with birds when it comes to decor so I thought I’d share this bird mobile project with you that I can across today on The Red Thread.
I’ve featured a bird mobile before here, but this one is so cute too, and worthy of note.
Make it as a gift for a baby shower or create it with your child using up old scraps of fabric. A great rainy day project that can be done in stages if necessary for your own child’s room. Mind you it’ll be just as lovely in an adult room too or hanging in a tree on a warm evening amongst some fairy lights.
You will need
- Sicky tape
- PVA glue
- Brightly coloured fabric scraps
- Rattan cane hoops (from craft shops). 20 – 24cm [8 - 9.5 inches] in diameter
- 4 -5 cm [2 inches] diameter styrofoam balls – optional
- Embroidery thread
- Long needle
For those of you who haven’t heard about Wallables, let me enlighten you…
they are the cutest
children’s wall art you ever did see!
Wallables are 3 dimensional sculpted wall décor products made out of soft polyurethane foam, whose bright colours and soft textures not only look great as a decor feature in your baby nursery, but they also encourage your baby to touch and explore the different surfaces, teaching your baby to interact with their invironment.
Wallables also come in a new Alphabet series.
When touched Wallables play music, teaching babies cause and effect’.
This 3d nursery wall art is made of a lightweight material which is soft and flexible and allows them to be placed above cribs or beds without any worries.
Wallables are very safe and have passed both the ASTM and CE toy safety standards for all countries.
I’m planning to work on some new interactive mural ideas that combine hand painted murals you do yourself with Wallable characters and Alphabet letters.
Watch this space or leave a comment on interactive ideas or themes you might like to see me create.
The lovely people at Wallables are giving away..
‘Dotty the Dragonfly‘ from the ‘Soft Smilies collection’
