Lighting is one of the most important features of any room, so when you’re getting a lamp for your children, you have to make sure it’s the right one. If you have any spare lamps in the house that you want to use for your kid’s room, or if you end up buying a new one, you can make it extra special with a few simple steps.
You can paint the lampshade a different color to give it a groovy vibe, or you can draw a dinosaur or any other figure that your kid likes. This will turn a simple lamp into a gorgeous accessory and spice up the lighting atmosphere in the room.
Make a Name Sign
When you’re a kid, having your own space is important, and so hanging up name signs so everybody knows which one is your room can be a very important task. So, why not give your kid an extra art project and collaborate with them in making a DIY name sign for their room? There are several ways to do this – you can buy letter stickers, paint their name straight on the door, or even cut out a piece of wood and make it more elaborate.
You could make an oval-shaped piece of wood, paint your kid’s name on it, and hang it on their door. This is also a great activity to do with your child because they’ll feel a sense of ownership and decision when it comes to their things and space.
Create Your Own Floor Rug
Anybody with kids knows that having expensive rugs around the house is a terrible idea. No matter how hard you try, something is eventually going to spill or stain the rug. So, we have a DIY project that you’re sure to love – creating your own floor rug. Head over to the crafts store and get some durable fabric that’s easy to wash.
Then, get some fabric paints and draw any patterns you want that will mix well with your kid’s room theme. This will allow you to have beautiful floor rugs decorating your kids’ room and not have to worry about an expensive dry-cleaning bill every few days.
Turn Rattan Baskets into Wall Pockets
Nowadays, you can find beautiful rattan baskets in the accessories bin of any retail store. They come in all shapes and sizes and have an added use that you’ve probably never even thought of – beautiful hanging wall pockets. If you pick up a few screws from your local hardware store and some rattan baskets from Kmart or IKEA, you can screw the baskets to the wall and use them to organize clothes, toys, books, or anything you need.
Think of them as an elegant shelf that adds a beautiful décor element to your kids’ room, and since rattan comes in a neutral color, it’ll match any color scheme you already have in place.
Make Wall Art Using Quilts and Frames
Before you start to panic thinking that you have to be a professional artist for this project, let us tell you that you absolutely do not! This creative DIY activity consists of grabbing any old quilts around the house and cutting different shapes to make small figures. Then, frame your quilt figures with actual photo frames and hang them on your kid’s room walls.
Just make sure the color and pattern of the quilt don’t clash with the rest of the room décor, and you’re good to go! Your kids will enjoy making them, and their rooms will have a cozy, colorful touch.
