This Pokemon Bedroom is a little one’s DREAM. Colorful, cheerful, and full of homemade touches. Let me know what your favorite part of the room was in the comments below! (This post contains a few affiliate links. That means that I get a small credit for referring you to a product that I used and love, but it doesn’t cost you any extra.)
A couple of years ago I put together a colorful Dr. Seuss Bedroom for my son. He has loved it, but in the last two years he has developed a new obsession: POKEMON!! His grandma made him an awesome Pokemon quilt and cube cushion just because she spoils him, and I made him the Pokemon card pennant banners as decorations for his Pokemon Birthday Party. I was thinking about those things, along with his Pokemon stuffed animal collection, and I decided that for his birthday I was going to surprise him by transforming his room from Dr. Seuss to Pokemon themed. This gift was a HIT!
Here is the quilt that started it all. Isn’t it THE CUTEST?!?!?!?! My mother-in-law is freaky-talented and freaky-generous. She spoils us rotten!! She also made him the incredible, detailed cube/cushion/seat. It’s the bomb.
(Ash Ketchum hat and Pokebelt found HERE, by the way.) I used my mother-in-law’s leftover fabric and made some new lively pillow covers, a new window valence, and fabric covered mini bulletin boards. Check it out . . .
If you’d like to sew pillows this style check out the tutorial HERE. I am a big ric-rac fan. It makes all projects seem more unique.
If you are looking for the stuffed animals, then Amazon.com is your friend! Here is where I got them:
To make the large name to go on the wall above the bed I bought individual wooden letters at Hobby Lobby. I spray painted them red, wrapped some washi tape around them in various ways, and glued push pins to the back of the letters so I could push them into the wall and they would stay. Very easy.
To make these small, round bulletin boards you will need round, cork trivets from Ikea, Pokemon fabric, and a hot glue gun. You’ll be done in no time! You can find the full tutorial HERE.
The window valance is essentially a really long tube. You can find the full tutorial HERE. It’s very simple to make, but it definitely gives the room a polished, finished touch.
Now let’s look at some other parts of the room. One thing I made was this large Pikachu art, which, quite frankly, I am totally obsessed with! A how-to tutorial is coming soon! In the meantime, I got all of the Pokemon cards HERE. They’re so affordable that I’m not convinced they are “real,” but, quite frankly, my son doesn’t know the difference, and I don’t care! Haha.
Cuuuuute, right?? Way easier to make than you think, too! I also used the same Pokemon Cards to make the pennant banners.
As you can see, this side of the room is dedicated to building and creating. Aside from the things I have already pointed out to you, you can see a framed sketch that he made of some of his favorite Pokemon characters, his binder of Pokemon Cards, and a peek into his closet, which is actually a secret reading nook that is also decorated in a Pokemon theme.
Would you like to get a closer look at his Pokemon themed reading nook? It includes a Pikachu stuffed animal, one of the cheery ric rac pillows, Pokemon hanging decorations leftover from his birthday party, and Pokemon character peel and stick wall stickers.
I wish I had a better picture of the closet. Sorry about that. I would like to show you a closer picture of the picture hanging next to the closet, though!
This is one of my favorite things in the room. It consists of a collage of cards that I made similar to the one I did in THIS tutorial. I used THESE cards to make the collage frame. They are all framing a giant “Callum Pokemon Card” that I made using THIS free website!
Thank you for taking the time to check out our Pokemon Bedroom! I hope you love it as much as we do! Now go play some PokemonGO and have a great day! 😉
