Wall Stickers are an easy, innovative way to spruce up your child’s bedroom. Painting can take a lot of time and money, and may not turn out as planned if creative skills aren’t your strong suit. Furthermore, those living in a rental may not be allowed to paint, limiting their decor options.
Here are a few ways you can use wall stickers to help your child feel at home in their special space.
Using letters or pre-made quotes, help your child create a mantra that reminds them of how capable and loved they are. Put this on their bed or their door, so they see it every morning when they wake up. Even if your child can’t read, telling them what the words mean will ensure they remember each time they see the letters on their wall. Be sure to tell them not only what the saying means, but how much they mean to you!
Using letters, stick your child’s name to the wall. This gives them ownership of their space and can help them learn how to spell their name during their younger years. Some families opt to take this a step further and create a crossword puzzle-style collection that includes the names of the child’s family members and friends. Others continue on this train of thought by incorporating a family tree or photos to associate with the names. Again, this option helps the child learn to spell while helping them feel surrounded by people who love them.
Create a Headboard
Depending on the type of bed your child sleeps in and the amount of room available, a full-size headboard may be out of the question. Use a Baroque-style wall decal to create an intricate headboard behind your child’s bed that is affordable, compact, and elegant. Seek a snowflake design if your child is one of the millions of Frozen fans in the world. Going this route instead of a traditional headboard reduces the risk of your child getting caught between rungs or accidentally damaging the wall.
Take it to the Sky
Create a trail of flying creatures to fill up blank space on a wall and incorporate texture into the room. 3D butterflies, birds, dragonflies, stars, or even bats for the Halloween fans are a fun way to add a pop of color to any room. When it comes to using wall stickers, the sky’s the limit. Mix and match different aerial elements– such as hot air balloons, clouds, and birds– to capture the dreamy sky theme. If you’re feeling extra creative, get solid decals for daytime elements and transparent, glow-in-the-dark stickers for nighttime elements.
Shapes and Patterns
Repetitive shapes and patterns make for a stunning accent wall. Stripes, polka dots, and stars are just a few simple ideas that can break up the solid walls of your child’s bedroom. Black and white or other contrasting geometric shapes can add a modern, visually striking component to a bedroom and help your child’s early vision development as well.
Create a mural using a variety of similarly-themed wall stickers. For example, the minimalist nature theme is very fashionable. Use wall stickers of forest animals and trees to decorate the room, while incorporating a teepee-style reading tent in one of the corners. Alternatively, you could do sea creatures or outer space; whatever your heart desires.
Map it Out
If wanderlust is your middle name, and you hope to share your passion for travel with your children, add a map of the world to their wall. Map stickers come in different sizes and formats, with some showing the borders between countries and others taking a more abstract, artsy approach. Indicate on the map where you have been, and make it an opportunity to tell your child about the amazing things you’ve experienced around the globe.
