How to transform your child’s room with our Tree Stencil Pack
As a parent, there's nothing more exciting than creating a fun, cosy bedroom for your child. But let's face it, decorating a child’s room can be daunting and overwhelming, especially if you don’t know where to start and you are on a budget.
That's where our Nursery Tree Stencil Pack comes in - a reusable and easy-to-use DIY tool that can transform your child’s room into a magical space in no time and doesn’t cost the earth.
Meet Jessica who recently transformed her child’s bedroom using our Nursery Tree Stencil Pack and some tester paint pots.
We'll walk you through the process step-by-step, from choosing your colour scheme to adding those finishing touches that will make your child’s room truly unique. So, whether you're a first-time stenciler or a seasoned pro, get ready to unleash your creativity and create a whimsical wonderland that your child (and you!) will love.
Before we start stencilling, let's first think about the colour scheme you want to use for your child's bedroom. If you're not sure where to start, consider the mood you want to create in the room. Do you want a calm and soothing space or a vibrant and playful one? You can paint the whole design one colour or paint it in more traditional tree like colours. The choice is yours!
Whatever colour scheme you choose, remember to have fun and experiment with different combinations until you find the perfect one for your little one.
Jessica chose Naturea paint in a small tester pot size in colours grey and green. The paint has been designed with sustainability in mind. It's a durable, acrylic and water-based paint. Its formula contains resins made from renewable, bio-sourced raw materials.
Top Tip: Look out for the little tester pots that you see in DIY stores. You really don’t need much paint when stencilling. Great money saving idea!
Before starting to stencil, it's important to properly prep your walls to ensure a smooth and lasting finish. Begin by cleaning the walls with a damp cloth to remove any dust or debris. I know it’s the boring part but trust me just giving your wall a clean will give you a better finish.
STEP 3 – STENCIL YOUR TREE:
The Nursery Tree Stencil Pack allows you to create two different shaped trees.
You need to have decided which shape you are creating so you can follow the correct set of instructions.
Jessica chose the sweeping tree shape for her child’s bedroom.
Top Tip: Use old newspaper or kitchen roll to dab off the excess paint before you start stencilling. You really don’t need much paint!
When it comes to stencilling, less is best! Apply a light layer of paint to prevent bleeding. Once the stencil is complete, carefully remove it now it’s time for the next sheet.
Simply repeat the process following the detailed pictorial instructions included with your pack to create your stencilled tree shape onto your wall. You don't have to stop at one tree you can paint a whole woodland if you wanted to. Included in the Tree Stencil Pack are the stencils needed to create both shaped trees and if you wanted a tree to sweep in the opposite direction, simply turn the stencil over.
Simply by using paint and a stencil you can create your own unique wall art mural for your child's bedroom.
