DIY supplies for child's room decor

Creating a design for your child’s room is a challenging but rewarding experience. As parents, we want this space to be special. The best way to achieve this is through creativity and a personal touch. Below are 5 DIY projects worth considering. All you need to begin these projects are basic crafting tools, inspiration, and an open mind!

1. Accessorize Their Bed

While this may sound difficult, building your little ones bed frame is completely doable. It’s possible to make a child-sized bed with some wood, basic tools, and hardware. For a less advanced project, consider building a headboard for their existing bed frame. Many parents do this using a piece of plywood, a memory foam mattress topper, and fabric. Seems like too much work? Browse through kid’s beds and find something of their liking. Then, you can accessorize it with sheets of their favorite superhero or princess!

2. Chalkboard Wall

Most kids, regardless of age, love a chalkboard wall. You can find chalkboard paint online or at any hardware store. Then, paint one (or all 4 walls) of your little one’s room. Keep in mind the pros and cons of having a chalkboard wall. For example, an advantage is that it will keep your little one from drawing on the walls of your living room or kitchen. A downfall is that it can cause quite a bit of dust in their room!

3. Add Fun Storage

This project may be a little more complex as you’ll have to visit a hardware store to pick up some items you may not have on hand. Instead of just buying storage containers or shelving for toys, blankets, books, etc., build some large alphabet blocks. They give a nice touch to the room, and you are able to store items in them.

4. Hang Dreamy Clouds

If you have just about zero crafting skills but still enjoy DIY, this is a great project for you. You’ll need to buy if you don’t already have, a large amount of cotton or stuffing, hot glue, and paper lanterns. It may take you a whole day or a few evenings to finish this project, but trust us; the results will be amazing. Hot glue the stuffing to the paper lanterns and hang them from the ceiling of your child’s room. This DIY can be made to your liking as you can scale down the number of clouds to better suit your child’s space. Lanterns will also help to illuminate the room better and therefor provide a better learning environment for your kid.

5. Ping-Pong Ball String Lights

This is a simple and super cute project for your child’s room, no matter the age!

Here’s what you need:

  • Drill and drill bit
  • White or multicolored LED lights (Christmas lights work great)
  • Ping pong balls
  • Hot glue gun

Making these string lights will take about an hour of your time. Start by drilling a hole into each ping pong ball. Then, slide a ball over each light. If the hole is too loose, add some hot glue to secure the ball to the light. You’ll end up with a beautiful strand of fun lights that can be hung around a bed, wall, or window. Just be sure not to let them run too long as they can overheat.

Final Thoughts

Looking for and finding kid’s DIY room decor ideas is easy if you’re looking in the right places. Try out some of these projects mentioned above and add some personality to your child’s space. They’ll love the furniture upgrades, wall art, and colorful accessories.

All these projects are beginner-friendly for those who may not have crafting experience. Some may take a little more elbow grease and time, but the end results will be worth it! Good luck!
