Use Alice in Wonderland fabrics

If you are handy with needle and thread, you can sew your own curtains, crib drapes, nursing pillow cases or baby blankets with Alice in Wonderland themed fabrics. If you’re not that creative, you can buy them ready-made. Or, buy the fabric and take it to a seamstress.

Wonderlandish walls

Vinyl stickers are very easy to apply and give your baby’s room an instant Wonderland feel. They are available in many different designs: images, quotes, or a combination of both. You can also have them custom made.

An alternative to a wall sticker is to use picture frames and put your favorite illustrations, movie stills, or quotes into them. Or have them printed on canvas.

Did you know you can also have wallpaper custom made? Order wallpaper with an Alice in Wonderland print and use it on one of the walls of your nursery (decorating all the walls might be a little too much, but that also depends on the pattern you choose). You can pick a repeating pattern (see the fabrics in the previous paragraph for an example) or go for a Wonderland scenery. Or look for checkered wallpaper. Pink Cheshire Cat stripes are especially suitable for a girl!

Vintage or wacky furniture and lighting

You can go for a romantic Victorian style when it comes to furniture and lamps. Use a lot of frills, bows, and fabrics and look for a big chandelier. Or opt for wacky and colorful furniture. Tea cuplights are not so difficult to make yourself!

Bring in the books

Collect several editions of the ‘Alice’ stories and put them all on a shelf. Besides the original stories, many abridged versions for children (including Lewis Carroll’s own ‘Nursery Alice‘) and comic books are available with pretty and colorful pictures, which you can read to your child.  Make sure you also get bookends in Wonderland style to hold them together!

Accessorize, accessorize, accessorize!

Finally, add several Alice in Wonderland items to complete your baby’s room. You’ll be amazed how many useful things there are available in Wonderland theme! How about a Cheshire Cat nightlight? And if you cannot tile your floor to make it look like a chessboard, you can look for a checkered rug.

If you’re on a budget, consider creating your own accessories, using thrift shop items as a basis. Online you can find many instructions. For example: buy a second hand baby mobile, cut off the decorations and replace them with your own. If you’re not good at sewing, just use lightweight figurines.

Other great looking ánd useful accessories are mirrors (to go through the looking glass) and funny wall-clocks.
