The thought of decorating can feel confusing and stressful. When it comes to the kids’ bedroom, it could get even more complicated, especially with children being prone to making a mess and quickly going in and out of different phases. However, these DIY home decor projects are budget-friendly, easy and perfect for a developing little human.


1. Blackboard wall

When it comes to painting a wall, it’s important to consider how it might affect the value of your property. Typically, keeping your walls neutral will make your home appealing to the widest range of prospective buyers if you intend to sell your home down the line. A regular feature wall can easily be painted over whereas a blackboard wall might be an issue.


Therefore, a great way to include a blackboard wall in your kids’ bedroom is by investing in an MDF board. The board can be sized to fit the entire wall to make it look like a blackboard wall or it can be made smaller to look like a normal blackboard. This method also makes it easy to remove if your child grows out of the blackboard down the line.


The essentials are chalkboard paint and a paintbrush. However, you might also want to invest in sandpaper and paint primer to make sure you have a smooth surface to work on. You can even get your kids to help you with the painting process before the blackboard becomes the perfect creative outlet or educational tool.  

2. Dream catcher

A dream catcher is another quick and easy DIY that you can do as a fun activity with your kids. If you want to make it cheap and simple, you can start with as little as a paper plate, some yarn, scissors and decorations. Cut out the centre of the plate to make the outer ring. Then use scissors or a hole punch to make holes around the ring to thread the yarn through.


You can add beads, feathers or stones onto the yarn to make it more colourful. If you’re hoping to make the dream catcher look store bought, you might want to use a metal loop or wooden loop. You can also swap out yarn for suede lace, hemp cord or embroidery floss. Get creative with the patterns you weave and the extras you use!

3. Floating bookshelves

Floating bookshelves are the perfect decor piece that can stand the test of time as your child grows older. However, remember to be cautious of damaging your walls. As the years go on, you can swap out the books for more age-appropriate ones. Or, you can display the different books your child has enjoyed throughout the years as a memento of their development.


You’ll need a 4”x4” corner bracket, 1” screws, velcro tape and a drill. Place a piece of velcro under the corner bracket before drilling the corner bracket to the wall. Then, add the other side of the velcro tape to the inside of the back cover of the book. Slide the back cover of the book under the corner bracket and stack a couple more books on top to hide it entirely.

4. Indoor teepee

An indoor teepee for your kids’ bedroom is the ultimate fort and decor piece. Compared to the other decor projects, this one might be a little more expensive and time-consuming. However, it’s also more fun and can definitely make a statement. You’ll need dowels, rope, fabric, ribbon, a drill and a sewing machine.


There is a range of different ways that you can put together your indoor teepee. Make sure to do research into what kind is most appropriate for you. Once it’s built, you can add a bunch of other fun decorations. For instance, cushions, rugs, fairy lights or stuffed animals. You and your kids can use the space to read, play or just for rest.

Final words

Whether you need some personalisation or a pop of colour, these decor projects are perfect for the kids’ bedroom. You can tackle these over a weekend or even in an afternoon. These don’t have to be difficult or expensive. Instead, they can be a bonding activity and a way to let your kids get creative.
