Sky’s the limit when it comes to decorating a nursery no matter what the style. Our favorites are thoughtful elements that are either personalized or customizable so you can make them your own and compliment your design inspiration. One of the big design trends is painting an oversized graphic wall mural. Whether it is a mountainscape or cityscape, pick a placement and paint colors that are just right for your space. With the YouthfulNest DIY Skyline Mural kit you don’t have to freehand anything, rather choose from 10 building templates of various sizes and shapes. You also can recreate the mural with any color scheme desired from pastels to pop colors – whatever your vista requires. For a video tutorial check this DIY Skyline Mural, How-To Video.

The DIY Skyline Mural kit includes 10 individual paper stencil buildings. Each building stencil has basic instructions for application. You can use one or all of the buildings together to create the complete skyline. Basic Instructions: 1. Cut out building shape on dotted line; 2. Affix to wall with small pieces of painters tape; 3. With a pencil trace outline of building template; 4. Remove paper templates; 5. Place painters tape along the outline of the entire shape; 6. Paint with color of choice within the taped outline. Enjoy!
