Tired of the age-old Noddy-goes-flying-with-Martha Monkey and Winnie the Pooh posters that adorn kids rooms? Looking for something that breathes freshness, color, and adds life to the four walls? But, you are not willing to spend a fortune and it must be easy to do?
Let’s get started then and transform the walls before Diwali.
With stores such as Staples, Reliance Stationery Mart, and Hobby Ideas opening up in every major city, decals have become easily available. At Staples, for instance, you get a forest-themed or animal decal for Rs.199. You don’t have to stick to the pattern depicted on the cover, just get creative, or better yet, let your child stick them.
Cost of the project: Under Rs.500
This stencil that featured in a recent issue of Elle Decoration – South Africa is one of my favorites. Of course, there’s no limitation to how far you can go with stenciling; it could be a repetitive small floral pattern or one big design. The bigger the stencil, the tougher it gets to complete it with finesse.
And finally, this mosaic wall using scrapbook stickers.
