When it comes to decorating the walls of a child’s room, it is often very hard to find something worth buying, either in terms of quality or aesthetic value.
You may find a variety of prints but original works of art are either rare to find or very expensive. So, why don’t you try to make something of your own that no one else will have!
Idea No 1 : Stencils and painting on canvas
You can find a framed canvas, at very low prices at art and crafts shops or even at toy shops.
Most of us have some stencils at home from previous artistic attempts J.
If not, you can make your own stencils, drawing and cutting out the patterns that you like. You can use a transparent A4 plastic sheet, neither very thick nor very thin, so that you can handle it easily.
After copying the patterns using the colours that I had chosen , I added details to some of them . I drew eyes , little beaks , feathers , pedals and buds, thus breathing more ‘life’ to my little critters!
Idea No 2: Left over fabric on canvas
I’m sure most of you keep pieces of fabric that you like and wait for the right time to use it. This is the time, my dear friends! Use them on canvas to make a fabric painting! Little houses in rows, birds, butterflies, little boats, toys, flowers, can easily be made with a little patience !
Idea No 3: Decoupage , fabric and acrylic colour on canvas
Choose a paper napkin with a scene that you like and use this easy and impressive technique (decoupage) to transfer the scene on canvas.
To give it a richer texture , I added some fabric bunting and I painted over the pattern, using my acrylic colours. I also used a piece of string to ‘hung’ the little bunting from.
This little colourful ‘place’ adds colour to the room and attracts attention!
I hope you liked my ideas and make something similar for you. If you do so , I’ll be very happy if you let me know! It is always very good to hear that you are inspired by the things you see in this blog.
I wish you all a creative weekend and week ahead.
My love to all,
