How to create a simple dinosaur mural

I’d like to show you a  simple idea for you to create a dinosaur mural for your child’s room.

Dinosaur Silhouettes

Paint a series of your favourite dinosaurs in one colour to suit the colour scheme of your child’s room. Go as pale or as dark as you wish. Try a tone just slightly darker than the wall colour for a pleasing subtle effect.

You can either find your own dinosaur shapes and enlarge them on a photocopier. Rub the back of the paper with a coloured chalk and trace over your design to transfer the pattern to the wall. Alternatively,  you could use one of my ready made dinosaur mural template kits which come in two sizes and have carbon paper to fit to trace onto the wall.

Two colour Dinosaur Mural


Take your simple dinosaur shape. Make the legs and some markings on the body a second colour. Trace onto the wall and paint .

Again, with this option you could either find your own dinosaur shapes and enlarge them on a photocopier. Rub the back of the paper with a coloured chalk and trace over your design to transfer the pattern to the wall or alternatively,  you could use one of my ready made dinosaur mural template kits which come in two sizes and have carbon paper to fit making it quick and easy to trace onto the wall.

Wallpaper cutout dinosaur mural

Choose a lovely wallpaper. Trace the design onto the back of the wallpaper, then cut out the shape and paste it onto the wall as per the instructions of your wallpaper brand.
My ready made dinosaur mural template kits come ready with carbon paper to fit making the tracing easy. They are designed to fit on an average width of wallpaper. The large sizes will fit on two widths of wall paper.

We have six dinosaur designs for you to choose from

Choose one or more of your favourite dinosaurs or use our kit with three dinosaurs templates included.
The kits come with a large paper pattern, transfer paper to fit and instructions.


The kits are available from the Magic Mural Factory (USA) and

Wallstory Murals (if you live in Europe or the UK)

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.

Use the following tips and ideas to turn your kid’s bedroom into an adventurous dinosaur jungle.

Dinosaur Adventure Kid’s Bedroom Painting Ideas

All dinosaurs did not live in the jungle.  However, the prehistoric world was populated by some large trees and ferns.  The first step in turning your kid’s bedroom into a dinosaur adventure is painting the walls to represent this jungle-like habitat.

Paint the walls green and add different colors of green for giant leaves, fern fronds, and palm type trees.  If you are really adventurous, paint in some logs and rocks as well.  Painting the ceiling blue will make your kid feel as if their bedroom is really outside in a dinosaur habitat.

If your kid prefers, you can paint the room to look like a desert dinosaur habitat.  The main colors would be tan, brown, and yellow.  You can paint large rocks or an oasis on one wall.

Dinosaur Adventure Kid’s Bedroom Furniture Ideas

Furniture was never found in dinosaur times, but your kid needs some in his bedroom.  You can paint small dinosaurs, dinosaur footprints, or scale pattern on your kid’s bedroom furniture.  Or, you can transform the furniture into giant dinosaurs by cutting out pieces of plywood in the shape of the dinosaurs and attaching it to the sides of the furniture.  For example, your kid’s bed could become a sleeping stegosaurus with a plywood shape on each side.

Dinosaur Adventure Kid’s Bedroom Accessory Ideas

Making the dinosaur adventure themed kid’s bedroom is easy with the right accessories.  You should be able to find dinosaur printed bed linens such as sheets and blankets.  You can buy or sew dinosaur shaped pillows for the bed or chairs.  Any type of jungle style accessories would work well.  Buy a lamp with a shade that looks like palm fronds.  Get a carpet remnant and cut out the shape of a giant dinosaur footprint for a throw rug.  Use wooden dinosaur teeth as pegs where your kid can hang their coat and hat.

Decorating your kid’s bedroom in a dinosaur adventure style is a great idea for kids that love prehistoric animals.  By using a jungle motif and lots of dinosaur pictures and toys, your son or daughter will love their adventure bedroom.

DIY Glowing Dinosaurs Lamps

Available at ThinkGeek

Glowing Dinosaurs for your Mammal Based Enjoyment

Take your home lighting back to the mesozoic era with these DIY Dinosaur Lamps. Think T-Rex knew that thousands of years in the future he would be recreated as a glowing table lamp for the whim of some odd warm blooded creatures? Probably not, but as a mammal you will appreciate the workout your opposable thumbs receive while assembling T-Rex… or his friends diplodocus and triceratops.

All three of these dinosaur lamps are constructed from precision cut sheets of flexible plastic which you slot together to create the finished glowing sculpture. Construction time is about 30-40 minutes, but the directions are very clear with detailed photographs of each step. Makes you wonder if thousands of years in the future when we’ve annihilated ourselves into a nuclear oblivion some advanced evolved race will make DIY Human Lamps…
