Transforming a Kids’ Room into a Wild West Wonderland with a Liberty Fabric Play Tent
Welcome to the free-wheeling Wild West! We had so much fun putting together a mood board and DIY steps for creating a Carnival inspired kids room last month, we decided to do the same for a Wild West-inspired kids’ room. If your little one dreams of galloping horses, cowboys + cowgirls, and thrilling adventures, we have the perfect idea to bring their imagination to life… so let’s saddle up and get started!
Set the Stage
Transforming a room into a Wild West wonderland begins with creating the right ambiance. Opt for warm earthy tones on the walls, such as rustic browns and sunset oranges. You could consider adding a touch of rugged charm with wood paneling or faux-brick wallpaper. Remember to sprinkle some cowboy-themed artwork, vintage ‘wanted’ posters, and horseshoe accents throughout the room to set the stage for adventure.
Pick your feature Liberty
Now it’s time to bring the Wild West into the play area with a Liberty Fabric play tent! pick a fabric that features classic motifs like cowboys, horses, cacti, and other Western-inspired patterns. The vibrant colours and intricate details will instantly transport your child to the wide-open prairies of the Old West! We picked Sheriff Brian, which features a colourful mix of western and desert inspired imagery.
Construct your Play Tent
Are you ready to get your DIY on? Yee-haw!
Begin by gathering the necessary materials: Liberty Fabric, wooden dowels, rope or twine, and basic sewing supplies. Measure and cut the fabric according to the desired tent size, leaving room for a door and windows. Sew the fabric panels together, leaving one side open for the entrance. Attach the dowels to form the tent’s structure, securing them at the top with rope or twine. Voila! Your Liberty Fabric play tent is ready to be the centrepiece of your Wild West-inspired kids’ room.

Accessorise for Adventure
To complete the Wild West look, incorporate themed accessories that encourage imaginative play. Scatter plush cacti and stuffed horses throughout the room to create an immersive experience. Hang a vintage-style map on one wall, allowing your little cowboy or cowgirl to plot their adventures. Add a cozy rug, providing a soft and inviting space for playtime. Remember, it’s all about the details that make the Wild West come alive!

Wrangling up Fun

Together, embark on imaginative journeys through the vast prairies, brave cattle drives, or uncover hidden treasures. The Liberty Fabric play tent will be their trusted base camp for all their escapades, providing a cozy retreat after a long day of Wild West excitement. Some cute cowboy story books will provide some respite from play and serve to inspire their next big adventure!
