DIY Nursery wall art – why buy stickers?

Having a nursery to decorate provides a great opportunity to unleash your inner child and get creative – animals, clouds, jungles, hot air balloons – anything goes!

Wilkos tester pots – go mad with colour at £1 each

There are thousands of wall art stickers available to buy online from the likes of Etsy, notonthehighstreet, Amazon and Ebay etc, but after looking at these for a while I decided that I could create something much more personal and at a fraction of the price by painting a design myself (when else do you get the chance to draw on walls?)

So I took myself off to my local Wilkos store (any excuse) where I picked up a couple of emulsion tester pots for £1 each in colours Cupcake and Cosy Grey. These are the perfect size (I only needed one of each) and there’s a great vibrant colour range to choose from.

There are loads of design ideas online to take inspiration from if, like me, you’re not the naturally artistic type who can draw from imagination. I chose a tree design which doesn’t require a huge amount of perfection – you can stick branches and leaves anywhere and nobody will know if it’s not how you intended it to look!

Anyway, £2 and three rather enjoyable hours later, the nursery feels much more colourful – hopefully the little one will approve!
