How many of you LOVE the circus?
I have always loved the circus ever since I was a little girl. My parents took my brother and I to see quite a few circus events when we were kids – a few really big ones like Barnum Bailey and a few local ones. But I always remember them being so much fun. There were always so many things to see – circus clowns, circus animals, cirus acrobats and so much more.
The circus reminds me of fun and smiles. I used to be in awe as a kid. The best circuses though, are the ones under the big striped circus tent. I have yet to take my little ones to the circus, but I really want to. I know they would love it.
I think a circus theme would be a great idea for a baby nursery. You can really get creative. One of the best ways to turn a nursery into a circus room is to paint the room to look as if you are inside of a circus tent like this one below. The work is tedious, but if you can afford to hire a professional – it might be worth your while! Doesn’t it look awesome?
You can also paint the circus tent onto one wall as if you are looking inside or outside at all the animals. I think this one is so adorable with the baby cutsie animals. Lauren from Sweet Pease did this one.
You really don’t even need the circus tent. You can keep it simple by just adding the circus animals.
This is another simple option. The artist painted an outline with the tent stripes in 2 different colors surrounding the crib and a hand painted border. You can do something like this as the back drop for all of your circus themed nursery accessories.
I think this last one is soooo cute! I love the creativity of the custom designed animal silhouettes in bright colors against the blue stripes. This could be done very easily by tracing an outline of the animal images onto the wall with an overhead projector and then painting it in. The stripes would be the hard part, but even that can be accomplished with some good measuring and LOTS of delicate surfaces blue painters tape. I found this picture on www.kariandkijsa.blogspot.com.
