Painting a wall in a camouflage pattern can be a fun project to share with your kids.This easy decor idea just uses paint and a little freehand art to totally transform a room.
Traditional military camo in shades of green looks great in a boy’s room, but simple color changes (say, pink and purple) can make it a funky pattern for your little girl’s walls. No matter what colors you choose, you’ll need three or four different colors to make the effect.
Paint the wall a neutral color as your background. You can fill the whole wall with camouflage spots, or you can let some of the base color act as spots. Start by drawing free-form shapes on the wall with pencil. They don’t have to be perfect, and they should all be different, gently rounded blob-like shapes. Or, hide creatures in the camo, like in Nancy Hadley’s photo above. Use an artist’s brush to fill in your pencil blobs with different camo colors.
