Bedroom Decorating – Create an Adventurous Magical Forest Theme That

Stimulate your child’s senses by creating a safe haven where imagination can run wild. In this article you will find eight simple steps that will help you create the perfect magical forest bedroom theme adventure.

1. Paint the ceiling of your room blue.

To start your bedroom transformation you will want to paint the ceiling of your room in a shade of blue to simulate the sky.

2. Bring your sky into the room.

Paint your walls approximately two feet down from the ceiling in the same blue shade that was used on the ceiling. This helps to bring your sky down into the room and adds dimension.

3. Paint the remaining portion of the walls green.

The green will simulate grass in the forest and will provide a base layer for the additional decorative elements that we are going to add. It helps to create balance and carries the theme throughout the room.

4. Use murals or stencils to add trees.

Select different sizes of tree murals or wall decor stickers and add them to your walls to develop your magical forest design. If you have artistic flair, try drawing the tree designs on your wall and paint them in yourself. Use your artistic expression, because it’s a magical forest, anything can happen.

5. Add faux paint patio pavers.

Use a faux painting technique to paint patio pavers onto a wood floor. This requires a bit more advanced skill, but there are many sites on the internet with specific directions on how to paint a glaze to achieve a stone floor look.

6. Create clouds with pillow stuffing.

Pillow stuffing can be purchased at your local craft store. Glue large globs of pillow stuffing to your blue ceiling to create fluffy white clouds in your sky.

7. Make a tree out of bunk bed uprights or a post in the room.

If you have bunk beds, continue the wood posts to the ceiling of the room. If you don’t have bunk beds you can still install a post somewhere in the room to create your tree. Use netting that has been spray painted green and gather it up on small ceiling hooks to create a tree. Swoop some of the fabric down and then back up for an amazing 3-D effect.

8. Use forest creatures as decorative accents.

Finish off your magical forest decorating theme by adding plush and plastic forest animals to the shelves and on the top of dressers. Add a plush squirrel and other plush friends to your child’s bed for play and to complete the theme.

Any of these eight ideas, or all of them, would be easy and affordable ways to transform your child’s bedroom into a magical forest play land.
