I’m so excited to welcome Jen of Plain Vanilla Mom to the blog today! She’s sharing such a FUN and simple DIY decor project that’s perfect for a kid’s room!
Hi There! I’m Jen. Photographer, blogger, wife, mom, Starbucks fanatic and the list goes on. Mostly at the moment though I’m thrilled to be here guest posting here for you! I looove Rebecca’s blog. Simple Things Sunday is what got me hooked! You will often find me joining in from my blog Plain Vanilla Mom so I hope you’ll pop by sometime.
Today I’m sharing with you a couple ideas for quick and easy DIY kids room wall art. I just love all the custom wall art that can be found online these days (and I’ve bought my fair share) but I figure as often as I’m wielding my camera around I really could probably be doing some of these cool things myself.
My inspiration for this project stemmed from the fact that I have two toddlers with bedroom walls that are in need of a bit of a makeover. I was going for quick and easy (or something ‘Simple’ as we might say) and truthfully it couldn’t have been simpler. (You could do this too! I know you can).
Using just window light and some white foam board for a backdrop I photographed our old wooden alphabet blocks for the personalized name prints and a few crayons in rainbow colors for another. I thought the crayon print might look kinda cool in our playroom. Really you could let your imagination loose here. What about using legos or even toy cars to spell out a name or initial?
I just kept shooting until I had something that I liked. I really didn’t take long at all. Once my images were edited I had them printed and then framed them using a few frames I had kicking around the house.
All these prints are cute hanging individually but I’m really anxious to mix them into a little gallery wall that I’m working on in each of the boy’s rooms.
Have you ever made your own wall art? I think I’m hooked.
