Quirky Art Ideas for Children's Rooms

I'm always on the lookout for fun, creative and affordable art ideas for children's bedrooms. Here are some of my recent favourites... 


This door is so simple and so clever... the possibilities are endless... you could get the children to create their own artwork, you could use a vintage poster or some funky wallpaper... or paint the inserts with blackboard paint so they can scribble on their door with chalk!



This idea is ingenious for little kids... imagine how much fun they would have changing the images around! 


The frame above has been backed with wire mesh to make it easy to attach different items - kids can peg, hang and tie up all the little bits and pieces they collect.



Framed vintage hankies... a great idea!  You could even hunt down ones with monogrammed initials to represent the alphabet... "A", "B", "C", "D"... or find ones with an animal theme.

The vintage hankie idea is so smart and could be used anywhere. Great finds!

My favourite is the map / chalkboard idea on the door - great use of otherwise neglected surface! x

Some super gorgeous ideas here! I had visions of wallpapering one of the walls in my babes room with a great big world map... unfortunately they were too expensive :(

Maybe the door option will be a good alternative

I love the map idea. I have pinned up a world map on the "wall" of our kitchen island, next to the eating table. Our family often refers to it during dinner conversations. My girls also like to play a game where they have to find a country I name. (Sneaky Mummy, making geography fun! tee hee)
