Wilderness Bedroom Decor
My 7-year-old son loves the great outdoors so I was inspired to create a wilderness themed bedroom for him. I started this camping room decor and forest themed bedroom by creating a mood board. I pulled wilderness nursery decor images from Pinterest and the internet to come up with ideas to create a wilderness boys room. This wilderness kids’ room is perfect for boys or girls with a camping wilderness theme. Keep reading to see how I made many of the items in this children’s woodland bedroom update so I could stay on a tight budget!
If you’re curious (or in a hurry)…
It’s the best price I found online for a kid’s teepee and is a large size!
This Wilderness bedroom update started with updating the long wall by the door. I recently had Dollar Tree wood contact paper on the wall to create a faux wood plank look. After a year with the faux wood contact paper, It was time for a change!
We removed the wallpaper and painted a gray mountain mural on the wall. I used painters tape to create the mountainscape and added a decal that says, “KIDS ZONE.”
This is the teepee featured in the wilderness bedroom. It’s the best price I found online for a kid’s teepee and is a large size!
I purchased the green fur rug for the teepee and the fire pillow is old from Target One Spot… it was such a great find!
I made the Camping Mode sign with some scrap wood and printed the sign on my printer at home.
The Trees above the closet are decals I made with my Cricut 🙂
Another wall that I painted was an accent wall behind my son’s bed. I painted the wall Benjamin Moore Gray, which is one of my favorite colors (it looks black but is really dark charcoal).
I added the Adventure is out There decal that I made with my Cricut machine above his bed.
Many people ask where my son’s bed is from.
We found it at our local Habitat for Humanity ReStore. It was a great find since it’s solid wood and has drawers underneath.
The gray bedding on his bed is from Beddy’s. Both our kids have Beddy’s bedding and although Beddy’s can be expensive, they are worth it! My kids zip their bed every morning and the bed is made!
The Buffalo plaid comforter is from Ikea.
The USA map is from Dollar Tree and I glued it to 2 foam boards and framed it with scrap wood.
I stenciled the crosses on the wall using a stencil cut with my Cricut machine but you can easily recreate this look using a sponge.
I found the bookshelf in the clearance section at TJMaxx and is from Magnolia.
The armchair is thrifted and is actually red, not gray, I just covered it with a gray chair cover found here.
I made the taxidermy deer head for my son’s bedroom with a wilderness theme.
I created a stuffed animal head sewing pattern by using one of my son’s stuffed deer animals then I uploaded the vectorized design into Cricut Design Space so others can easily create the same DIY plush deer head!
I used my Cricut Maker Machine to cut the Deer Head stuffed animal taxidermy pattern and sewed the pieces together to make this Stuffed Deer Head DIY.
On the stenciled wall, I arranged a gallery wall with some DIY $1 Paint Stick Shelves, some framed artwork that I printed at home, a letterboard, and a corbel to hold an essential oils diffuser.
The cubby shelf is from Ikea.
I found the corbel at a thrift store for $3!
This diffuser is from Young Living and I painted it black to match the room 🙂
I’m using the paint stick shelves to display kid’s essential oils.
I made the book ends using scrap wood and I used printable stamped book covers to display in the room.
We also updated the ceiling fan in his bedroom since the previous one the light was the only thing that worked 🙁
I found this ceiling fan here. It’s a small 44″ fan but very powerful and cools the room well.
I made this nursery bear rug for my son’s bedroom refresh with a wilderness theme. This faux bear skin rug would look cute in a forest themed nursery as bear rug decor! I used my son’s brown bear that he’s had since birth as inspiration and my son loves that this bear rug looks just like his favorite bear.
You can easily DIY a Plush Bear Rug for less than $10 by following this tutorial. This Bear Rug was the perfect addition to my son’s bedroom refresh with a camping theme.
