1. Glass dry erase board by Living Letter Home

This idea can be implemented pretty much anywhere in your home, but as far as easy DIY kids room decor ideas go, it hits a key point: it’s a wall surface that they are actually allowed to write on. And they can erase it and write some more!

The key, though, is having them be old enough to understand to keep the writing on the dry erase board only 🙂 (I love it with the wallpaper here, too.)

2. Rainbow-stained shelving by T. Moore Home

Teri does some fun projects for her daughter, and these Unicorn Spit rainbow-stained shelves are a prime example. I especially love the high-gloss finish on these, which would also be easy to clean. If you have a color-loving kid, these could be right up your alley.

3. Simple macrame display for kids’ art by My Kitchen My Craft

The extent of Ramona’s art so far is a “firefly” craft daycare did last year by dipping her toes into paint and pressing them on the paper…lol. She is just starting to get into coloring and drawing, though. We sometimes tape a piece of paper down and let her scribble on it with the big easy-to-hold crayons.

I’m sure I’ll be even more sentimental about her art once it isn’t just scribbled lines, and this display option is a great idea. I love that it’s easily interchangeable.

4. Unicorn bookends for a nursery by me

One of mu favorite inexpensive decorating ideas for kids rooms is to use old or thrifted toys to make bookends. I made these neat unicorn bookends out of scrap wood and cute unicorn figurines I found at Goodwill.

But I loved them so much I decided to keep the unicorns for myself. Ramona doesn’t have real bookshelves yet, so I put the unicorns on my plant shelving. 🙂

6. Tapestry-wrapped canvas art in Ramona’s nursery by me

I got this owl tapestry off of Society6 and stapled it around an old Ikea canvas. We originally had it downstairs, but when Ramona came along, I thought it’s be perfect for her nursery.

They have a couple other similar animal prints if you like this but aren’t keen on the owl. I just love the detail on it. It looks like a real painting.

7. Removable wallpaper headboard by Delicious and DIY

This DIY wasn’t done specifically for a kids room, but removable wallpaper and washi tape are great kid-friendly decor ideas because they are affordable, easy, and temporary.

You can switch them up without much effort, and your heart won’t be broken if they don’t stand up to wear and tear in a kids room. Plus they can help pick them out.
