Painted/Vinyl Wall Mural – Decorate your child’s room with a paint and vinyl sticker wall mural. Paint the background color with latex paint. For example, create a wavy horizon line with green on the lower half and blue on the upper half if you are making a landscape. Rather than paint details onto the background, use vinyl rub-ons available at most craft stores. The vinyl rub-ons look like painted decor and adhere to the wall if you apply pressure to the back with a stylus. You can find the vinyl stickers in a variety of designs.

Chalkboard Wall – Paint a wall, or a portion of a wall, in your child’s room with colorful chalkboard paint. Supply chalk and erasers and the kids can decorate the wall daily with different images. Chalkboard paint is available in a variety of colors, and it’s easy to apply with a brush or a roller, just like latex wall paint. A chalkboard wall encourages kids to be creative.
Ribbon Headboard – Do one of the most excellent children room decorating ideas by covering a large artist’s canvas with ribbon strands to create an easy headboard for a child’s single bed. Mix different colors and sizes of grosgrain ribbon to create an eclectic pattern, or weave horizontal ribbons between vertical ribbon strips for a more sophisticated look. Cut ribbon strands 2 inches longer than the width or height of the canvas. Staple the ribbon ends to the wooden strip around the perimeter of the back side of the canvas with a staple gun.
Mosaic Mirror – Decorate a plain mirror with glass beads, marbles, mosaic tiles and broken ceramics to make an easy and creative mirror for your child’s room. Glue the material around the perimeter of the mirror with viscous jeweler’s glue or mosaic glue. Place the pieces close together and layer some on top of others and you can eliminate the grouting step. Enjoy creative crafting time together; your kids can help design the arrangement and glue the pieces in place.
Painted Furniture – Repurpose old bedroom furniture to fit in with your child’s room décor. Purchase used furniture at yard sales or thrift stores; as long as the scale is right for the room, you can refinish the exterior. Repair any imperfections with wood filler, sand the surface with light-grade sandpaper and then give the old piece new life with colorful paint. Spray paint is a quick and easy application option, or you can roll latex paint with a small roller or apply it with a paintbrush. Paint the drawer fronts different colors, create a theme piece with rubber stamps or apply vinyl rub-ons to decorate the furniture to suit your child’s style.
Do-it-yourself children room decorating ideas can include easy craft projects that your kids can help create. You’ll be amazed at how easily you can decorate a kid’s room without breaking the bank.
