5 Creative Ways to Use Photos in Kids' Rooms

Want to spruce up the photographs hanging in your child's bedroom? We've rounded up five ideas for ways you can DIY a unique effect to your photos to create an unusual and interesting piece.

Warhol-esque Pop Art: Beckie from Infarrantly Creative shows you how to create these pop art canvas portraits from a regular photo. Check out her tutorial at Kristen Duke Photography.

Photo Wall Decals: You can take any photo and turn it into an enormous wall decal at Shutterfly. Geek Dad shows you how here. Make a few and you can change up the decor when you want to.

Newspaper Clipping Art: With a little extra time and some news copy skills, you can create a fake newspaper article featuring your child. Cheri from I Am Momma Hear Me Roar has her tutorial here.

Framed Photos: Adding an unusual frame (or two!) can turn regular photos into something special. See what Lisa at http://trappedinnorthjersey.blogspot.com/2011/03/art-for-kids-room.html did to spruce up pictured of her kids.

Photos of Toys: Why not create your own photo art by taking
photographs of kids' favorite toys? We love the Lego minifigure scenes from A Lego A Day, but you could create your own with your kids' preferred toys. (You can order one of Dan's prints here.)
