I want to do an Alice In Wonderland theme for my 2 year old's bedroom since it is a theme that can last a while & she also loves the movie. I could really use some ideas on how to decorate the room, the bedding, etc. I want it to be really unique & fun.

Hi Jennifer, I did a Winnie the Pooh theme as a baby's room and did quite a bit of searching on the web to find a mural of winnie the pooh that I put on one whole wall. It looked amazing. You could see if you can find one of Alice in Wonderland. Don't be afraid on wallpaper, it comes off easily these days. Also if you find a sheet set of Alice in Wonderland, you could use the top sheet and make curtains to go on either side the window (if you have a blind on the window). We did that recently for our next theme which was of FAIRIES so it matched her doona cover.

Check out illustrations done for the Disney movie by one of the few women Art Directors Mary Blair. Her illustrations are simple and whimsical--easy to recreate with a projector and some paint.

You can also find books of her illustratons on Amazon...

It sounds like a wonderful project. Please post pictures when you are done. :)

my daughter is into fairies so we got wallpaper and made cut outs and painted flowers and trees on the walls, but Alice would have been more fun. A tree for the cat painted on the wall or making card people using posterboard and paints to go on the walls or even setting up a small table with whimsical child friendly dishes for a tea party with the mad hatter; Look for some illustrations that you like that would be appropriate for a few years and have them blown up and copied and you can apply them to the walls; you can rehab white French furniture, it tends to be curvy; just have fun.

We did our nursery in Smurfs and we have NO drawing abilities! We took pages from coloring books and got them made into transparencies and then used an overhead projector to do the entire room. It turned out amazing!!

iron on transfers are always a good idea!! also for pictures and stuff its a good inexpensive thing to print stuff off the computer and frame it!

When I think of Alice in Wonderland I think of the Tenniel prints from the book, which are more muted colors and would look great with white furniture with girly accents. Check out allposters.com for lots of prints/posters. http://www.allposters.com/-sp/Cheshire-C... You can get them framed or mounted on board or on canvas. A couple of big prints of your daughter's favorite parts of the story would be very simple and make a big impact on the wall.
They also have prints from the Disney movie version, which is probably what you're thinking of. Since you mentioned whimsical furniture, it made me think of the IKEA kids furniture http://www.ikea.com/us/en/search/?query=... and it's pretty affordable. You could pick your favorite colors for the furniture and coordinate paint and bedding from there. Have fun!

For the wavy dressers - maybe a photo to the local high school or technical institue or maybe a correctional institute to see if they do that type of work and if so have them give you an estimate. Often these places are looking for projects and often charge not much over material costs just to have the opportunity to do something different. At worst they will say no and you will not be any further behind - same with the over size playing cards check local art classes.

Quoting Angie:

We have been collecting things to do our playroom in Alice in Wonderland! I will be painting a life size Chesire Cat and using chalkboard paint instead of light pink for some of the stripes. We found oversized outdoor playing cards for the Queen's Court. You may want to paint her furniture in bold colors like the room at the bottom of the rabbit hole. Can you tell we love this movie? What about a "mad hatter's tea table?"


Where did you get the over sized playing cards? Also I do love the part of the movie at the Mad Hatter's tea table do you have any ideas for that? Do you or anybody else have any ideas for bedding? I want the room to be really unique like I even saw some curvy dressers that would look so cool for the room but unfortunately they are WAY expensive.
