There is nothing more exciting than the arrival of a new baby in the family and we can prepare for this and welcome them to our lives by designing the happiest possible place for them to start their lives at. There are many ways we can design our nurseries, but the main point is that it should be a positive, open space, fun, inviting and conducive of play and growth. Here are a few ideas on how you can decorate your nursery walls without much effort and investment.

1. Spell out the babyís name

There is no better way to personalize the babyís space from the very beginning than writing their name on the wall of the nursery. You can get wooden lettersand decorate them with simple paint, draw something on them, make a decoupage, wrap them in yarn, make them in glitter or paste contact paper on them. Either way, big bold alphabet letters always look good on the wall.

2. Make hand and foot prints

A simple way to track and honor your babyís growth is by making their handprints and footprints on the wall of their nursery as they grow. You can do prints every month or so, ordering them in a straight line, a growing spiral or any other fun pattern. It will seem as though your wall is growing together with your baby and it will be a good reminder of how magical life is. The only problem is, you might have a hard time painting the wall over and losing the prints.

3. Use a mural

Nowadays, there are many beautifully designed mural wallpapers and you can get. A magical scene from a fairytale, an image of a beautiful enchanted castle and a princess in it, a fairy forest, a scene with underwater creatures Ė these are all good options. You can also choose Disney cartoon scenes or something with superheroes, princesses, the animal kingdom and the like.

4. Make silhouettes

If you are not very good at arts and crafts, an easy way to decorate a wall with zero artistic skills is to simply outline silhouettes on the walls and paint them or use cut out pieces of wallcoverings for example . These can be silhouettes of animals, fairies, fruits, symbols like stars, moons and planets, flowers and so on. You can keep it simple but colourful. A wavy line of little dolphin silhouettes all across the wall will change the look of the entire room and give it an aquatic theme. You can also do this with a long line of camels crossing the dessert of your solid colored wall.

5. Install a fun lamp

If you donít want to mess with the walls, you can still decorate the room by using a lamp that makes a decorative shadow on the walls. One good option is a doily lamp you can make by yourself with some DIY trial and error. Lace patterns will create magic on your walls. Another option is to cut out shapes on your classic paper lantern or make a yarn pendant lamp. This can be done with wall lamps and floor lamps as well, which even come with rotating shades and make little waves or stars on the walls.

The best thing about the nursery is that it is friendlier to changes of dťcor than any other room in your house and you can change things around often and have fun with it keeping up with your babyís growth and development. So, get creative and donít be surprised if you want to move to the nursery too!
