While designing a kid’s room, we try our best to keep it cheerful. While there are so many wall decor products available, it is not always a budget-friendly option. You can create a fun look in your little one’s room by creating wall art yourself. Here are some cute ideas.
A Rainbow Wall Hanging
A rainbow symbolizes joy and hope. It makes us instantly happy. So, why not create a rainbow wall art? Your kiddos are going to love it. You only need to have some free time and patience to whip this up. Take 4 pool noodles, and bend one of them with the help of a copper tube. Wrap the first pool noodle with pastel pink chunky yarn. Wrap the remaining pool noodles with mustard yellow, pastel green, and sky blue chunky yarn. Put these pool noodles inside the first one, and fix them in place with the help of a hot glue gun. Finish the rainbow with felt balls and super chunky white cotton yarn tassels.
Giant Paper Flowers
Spring is always a season to celebrate, with its flowers blooming everywhere. So, why not get creative and craft some giant flowers with construction paper? You have to cut large petals in 3 to 4 different sizes for each flower. Curl them using a dowel. Cut a fringe and roll it to make the center of the flower. Start gluing the small flower petals to the center of the flower with a hot glue gun. Keep increasing the size of the rose petals until you get the flower of your desired size.
