Under the the Sea Ocean Wall Sticker Mural
Under the the Sea Ocean Wall Sticker Mural
Kids love fish and there is no better way to capture their delight every day than with an easy, under the sea themed nursery wall mural using fish wall stickers.  Create a soothing and undulating ocean scene for your wee one with not too much work. This wall sticker set from Fun Rooms for Kids can be used to create your own ocean wall mural.  Start by using a pale blue or a pretty sea green wall paint to create the ocean look.  Be sure to consider low VOC paints for your kid's room which are more eco-friendly and produce fewer fumes.  To get the waves undulating just right, cut out soft curves from the bottom of a thick piece of paper (where the paper is at least 1 foot high) and tape it right above where you want the top of your ocean to be.  Experiment with whether you want "sea level" to be closer to eye level for your wee one or a bit higher.  Paint along the edges of the taped paper using it like a wall stencil to get that soft wave look. Be sure to wait two weeks before applying the wall decals as most require a completely dry wall to ensure they won't damage the wall paint. After the paint is dry, arrange the colorful fish wall stickers and accompanying shark, bubbles, starfish, eels, seahorses, and other sea creatures to your liking.  The wall sticker set featured is currently on sale (yay!) at Amazon for $55.  It includes 54 vinyl wall stickers that are removable and repositionable and use a broad color palette of light blue, medium blue, sage green, lavender, orange, and yellow.    See our other wall sticker ideas for more easy wall murals.
