Lyds had something on each of her bedroom walls, except for one, and I had no idea what to do. I came across this site and decided it would be a easy, free, and quick way to dress up her wall. And if it didn’t work out, hey, it was free because I had all the supplies on hand, and non invasive, so it can be removed anytime.
- Scrapbook paper (any square size: 12×12, 9×9, etc)
- Hot Glue Gun
- Adhesive Wall Putty
- You want to use two pieces of scrapbook paper that are the same square size. I used 12×12, 9×9, and 6×6.
- Fold the up and down, like a paper fan.
- Crease each folded piece of paper in half.
- Glue the outer strips to each other to make a semi circle. Do the same thing on the other piece of paper.
- Next, glue them together on the outsides.
- Get adhesive wall putty, and roll it into a ball about the size of a ping pong. Put it on the wall. Stick the middle of the decoration into the putty, and you’re done!
Have you done any neat wall art you want to share?
Abs comes home from church each Sunday and Wednesday with at least two sheets of art work that she made in bible class. We’ve run out of magnets and fridge space.
I think I’d like to “display” her paintings on her color block wall, but I’m not sure how to do that. Any ideas? What do you do with your kids’ art?
So, it’s still not 100% done, but I just can’t wait any longer to show you pictures of Abs’s new big girl room. Now why didn’t I ever take pictures of the room before when it was just an office/guest room?? Oh, I know, because it looked awful! So, sorry you don’t get the full effect of before and after shots. Just imagine an ugly off white wall with ugly brown doors and brownish, ugly carpet.
Okay, here are two pictures I found of the day we started doing the redo.
And here are the “after” pictures
I made her wall letters. Here are instructions of how to make your own.
We painted a block wall (I talked about it here). Eventually, I’ll do a tutorial for you.
J painted her doors; they used to be a nasty brown wood.
The window treatments are made from tulle. A friend made the bow holder.
J and his dad made the clothing rack. The shelf has picture of Abs at 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9 weeks old.
Still lots of work to be done. I want to make tissue paper flower pom poms. We need to convert her crib to a toddler bed. And we need to get new door hinges and knobs. And I want to make a wall decal and vinyl lettering. Oh, and J’s going to build her a low play table that we can put her baby doll house and barn on top and store her toys underneath. But overall, we’re pretty satisfied with her room, and she loves it!
