TREE WALL MURAL ~ in the girls’ room

I’ve been seeing a lot of cool tree wall murals on PINTEREST lately. Which of course made my mind race. How cool would it be to paint one on my daughters’ wall??

Here are some of my inspirations

I love the bookshelf for branches idea.

Another shelf for branches
I love how whimsical this tree is
Wall Decals Nursery - Large cherry blossom tree with pink and soft pink blossoms - Baby Tree Wall Decals 900

The flowers blowing is very pretty

I started with one of the shelf for branch pictures and added a little of the whimsical tree then added a little bit of the pretty flower tree. This is what I got!

What do you think? Don’t look too closely because I am NOT an artist by any means. I just enjoy being able to draw on the wall!
I have the branches as shelves but I tried to be a little whimsical with the flowers and if you look real closely you can see our new pet butterflies.

I also hung the girls’ names with pretty polka dot ribbon. Here’s how I did that~

1.  I cut 5 pieces of ribbon for Ciara and 6 pieces of ribbon for Claire each 18 inches long.
     2.  I folded the first loop of the bow.
    3.  I folded the second loop of the bow.
     4.  I wrapped a tie-wrap tightly around the middle of the bow.
     5.  I put a dollop of hot glue on the tie-wrap.
     6.  I took the remaining ribbon and folded it over the hot glue and tie-wrap.
     7.  I put a dollop of glue on the back top of the letter and stuck it to the end of the ribbon.
     8.  Enjoy your beautiful artwork!
The girls absolutely love their new room!!
Tell me what you think. Have you ever drawn on the wall? It’s fun isn’t it??

  1. I would say that you did an amazing job of painting:) I know I couldn’t do that and I love the shelves that you added to the tree branches with the names. How adorable:):):)

    • Thank you so much for your kind words. I had a lot of fun doing it. And trust me when I say, if I can do it, anyone can do it. I am not artistically inclined at all. Hope you have a great weekend! ~Linda
