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)

Princess Themed Room Decor

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.
