How to Paint a Circle Wall Mural

I found this one on

I recently came across a person who had asked a question on a forum about how to paint large circles on their wals. So I would like to give you a few simple steps to accomplish the above modern circular pattern.

Step 1 – Choose colors. In this case, the colors were taken from the bedding – beige, light pink, dark pink, and brown.

Step 2 – Base coat your walls. They used the neutral beige as their base color in the above nursery.

Step 3 – Prepare your circle making tool. Tie a string around a pencil and attach a push pin at the other end of the string. However long your string is, will determine how big your circle is. You can use different length strings to get different sized circles.

Step 4 – Outline the circles on the wall. Stick your pin into the wall. Keep the string tout and draw your pencil line around the tack.


Step 5 – Paint the circles. If you are going to paint your circles and also outline them in different colors (as they did in the picture above) then start with the inside circle color first. You will then paint the outline last.

So, this is an easy way to add a simple mural design to the walls of any child’s room. This technique can be used in both boys or girls rooms. As long as you now know the trick to painting circles – you can be as creative as you want to be!

    Fabulous blog! And your artwork is beautiful.

    I found you via Amy at Living Locurto. I used to have a art/design business for children; and I loved doing nurseries. It was always such a happy time for the clients. And when else could I paint sweet things like bunnies and butterflies and such? :)
