Woodland Themed Boy's Room

And moving right along, we've been changing things up a little in Matt's room. A couple of weeks ago, our 'Land of Nod' catalog came in the mail and Matthew and I both LOVED their woodland themed boy's room and I quickly went to work finding free and super thrifty things I could do in his room to give it a woodsy feel on the cheap! Does our room look just like the one in the 'Land of Nod' catalog, heck no, but their picture gave us lots of inspiration ideas that we could turn into our very own woodland room. Here's what we came up with:




1. Make your own faux sheepskin rug! Tutorial for that coming this Friday on the blog! {$20 for a 4x6 size rug}
2. Buy some plaid flannel to make a throw pillow for the bed {$3}




3. Make pine cone garlands out of pine cones found on our nature walks {free}



4. Bring in a quilt from another room to layer on his bed {free}
5. Cut some evergreen branches and put in a pot for a woodsy feel {free}



6. Bring in a large log to use as a bedside table {free}

7. Have kids make some art for the walls {free}





Grand Total:
$23

And the best part, besides the dirt cheap cost, momma and boy, both happy! This DIY rug is so cool because it can be thrown right in the wash when needed. Love that! Remember to come back Friday for the easy tutorial on making your own throw rug out of any kind of fur! 


Decorating should be FUN! Even if you're working with a humble budget, you can still fancy up your home! Don't ever let limited funds stop you from making your house your own!

    1. Thanks Marie! I know how you feel about all the toy themed rooms- it can just be too busy I think. We really enjoyed putting this room together and I really think it's a good and calming space for our son- who needs all the calming he can get ;)
