How can I decorate a sports team themed kid’s room on a budget?

To decorate a sports themed kid’s room on a budget, start with the basics. Inexpensive items can be just as dramatic and eye catching as expensive signed jerseys, collectibles that are excessively expensive and pricey premade bedding. Start with the team colours. Simple additions to the room of items you already have in those colours can help the theme stand out. Plain throw pillows on a bed or chair are one idea. A display of team pennants on the wall, either dispersed around the room on the walls or in a group arrangement on one focal wall. If you can’t afford expensive prints and frames pictures of sports teams or favourite team members go for less expensive, unframed posters. Use magazine cutouts and create a mosaic picture to hang on the wall. Don’t shop in the stores that carry the team logos on expensive merchandise. Hit the flea markets, garage sales and thrift stores. It may take a while to gather everything you want, but the hunt is of part of the fun. Sometimes you can find real treasures that way too, even some of the same things you see at expensive stores for much cheaper prices. Use the equipment that you have as part of the d�cor, for example footballs, baseballs, basketballs and bats for example. You can decorate an existing lampshade with cut out team pictures or logos. You can use old ticket stubs and programs to add to the theme too. Use team themed t-shirts to hang, even worn out ones. Worn ones can be cut apart to make throw pillow covers that match the team theme. Paint a team mural on the wall that you create with the child whose room it is. Have fun creating! Mama Nono
