Airplane Decor Ideas For Budding Pilots
Here's airplane decor ideas for those budding pilots in the family. Blue sky and fluffy clouds is what I think of when I think airplanes. Behr Paint has a color called Blue Glass that's the perfect shade of sky blue. I've use it before, and sponged watered down white paint over it to add atmosphere and clouds.
If your child is a little older, maybe you could do some model airplanes together, and hang them from the ceiling. I love the Fantasy Flyer ceiling fan shown here. If this style of plane works in your kids room, then you gotta get one of them! As an alternate, if you go on Ebay, you'll find custom painted fan blades that will have airplane theme designs on them that may coordinate better with the look you're going for.
If you can get your hands on an old propeller hang it on the wall just for the looks, or if it's not a collectible piece, screw some clothing hooks into it and use for hanging up jackets, hats and robes.
Get one of those kites that look like a bi-plane, and suspend it in a corner of the bedroom, or near the bed, so he can look up at it as he drifts off to sleep.
Window Treatment Ideas for the Airplane Theme
Since I mentioned model airplanes earlier, here's another way to use them, along with a couple other ideas:
- Make a wooden cornice board and paint or wallpaper it to look like sky and clouds, then attach some of the model planes to the face of it.
- If your child happens to have a collection of MatchBox airplanes (the little ones), hang them with fishing line from the bottom edge of the cornice, like little flying airplane fringe.
- Use a large PVC pole as a curtain rod, and use some airplanes as finials.
- Have you seen that craft kit called Gallery Glass? Get some of that, and a kids coloring book for a pattern, and make some airplane decals for the window.
