Wall Decor

Hoot Hoot Hooray

With much anticipation of the upcoming birth of our second baby, Blake, here is a sneak peak into the Do-It-Yourself art project I just completed for his nursery. I decided to go with an owl theme and choose aqua, melon and chocolate as the key colors for his nursery.  To create some custom wall art for the room, I took some blank canvases and painted them to match the wall color.  I then found a super and inexpensive wall decal kit with the owl motif at Target.  I cut apart a few of the decals and arranged them before sticking them into place.  Then I grouped the canvases together in a pattern to hang on the wall. Totally custom, extra easy and fabulously fun.  All for under $60!

    Hi,

    Such an adorable theme. Owls make such a cute theme for nurseries. I like the idea of putting the wall decal on canvas instead of directly on the wall. Easier to arrange and re-arrange.

    I love this idea. I can’t find the decals anywhere though. You said Target, right? when did you purchase them and where can I find them since I’m having no luck at Target.com? I would love to put these in our nursery!!!

    Hi Kim,

    I found them at the Target store near the “kids bedding” section near the decorative accessories about 2 weeks ago. They still have them….It comes in a kit that coordinates with the Circo Love & Nature Girls Bedding Collection. I picked out the decals from the kit that were more boyish. Also the little bird decal on the orange canvas originally had a pink wing so I cut one of the green leaves to change it out. Hope this helps!! FYI I could not find it on-line either, so try the store. (:

    Those are terrific! What I really love is they are gender neutral for those people who have the patience to wait and find out the sex at birth! :)

    Thank you for the info! I had to call around to a bunch of places, but found one not too far that had them. I’m getting them tonight. Did you cut them with an exacto knife or something else? just wondering. Thanks again…very creative in using the leaves for the wing too! I like that look!

    I love the owl theme! I was going to go with that if our new little one had been a girl, but since it’s a boy I for some reason was drawn to whales (weird, I know). I wanted to let you know, though, that Petit Collage has an AMAZING laser-cut bamboo owl mobile (actually, two of their designs have an owl) that you might like!

    I love these owl decals but we don’t have Targets here. Can you tell me the “brand” name or who it’s made by. I might be able to find some online that way.

    thanks!!

    Aww! So cute! I’ve been going back and forth looking for nursery bedding for our 2nd little guy due in January and I keep going to the owl, nature theme! Just a quick question: Where did you get the canvas? Did you get them at Michael? Did you have to get specific measurements?

    Thanks!!!

    Thanks for the great idea! It looks amazing. I have the bedding set that matches those decals, so I think I will do something similar for my daughter’s room. What a great way to make some inexpensive decals have that extra touch.

    Hi! I loved this idea so I created it in our nursery too! One question, some of my decals are not sticking to the canvas. They held for a few days and now are coming off. Any thoughts on what I can use to get them to stick? Thanks!

    Did you paint the canvas? I used a flat wall paint and then burnished them on to the surface. Mine have been up for over 5 months and no signs of peeling. You could also try a spray adhesive.

    Really, really, really stinkin’ cute! Great idea grouping the canvases like that. Makes it stand apart from a lot of the vinyl decals out there. Kelly

    Love this! Did you paint the canvas with the same paint you used for the wall? Or did you use a different type of paint in the same shade?

    Reading it I believed it was pretty enlightening. I value you taking the time and effort to put this short article together. Again I find myself spending way too enough time both browsing as well as commenting. But so what, it absolutely was still significant!
