When considering options for decorating your nursery in a Noah’s Ark theme, take into account your financial budget for the nursery to avoid overspending. You may save money shopping consignment shops, as these contain gently used nursery products at a discounted price. A Noah’s Ark themed nursery works well for a baby boy or baby girl, as this theme is gender-neutral. You may wish to incorporate a gender-specific accent colour into your nursery.

  1. 1

    Paint the bedroom walls a beige hue when decorating a nursery in a Noah’s Ark theme. The beige hue provides a neutral wall colour to soothe your infant instead of painting the room a bright, bold colour. This also provides a neutral background for artwork on the nursery walls.

  2. 2

    Purchase a variety of stencils from your local hardware, paint or hobby store containing different animals. Decide if you want to stencil animals around the nursery in a border theme or if you want the animals in a variety of locations on the nursery wall. Tape the stencils to the wall and paint the designs inside the stencils with your paint and paint brush. Remove the stencils carefully before the paint dries.

  3. 3

    Install shelving in the nursery as an option for displaying decorative Noah’s Ark themed items. Consider long wooden shelves or bookcase-type shelving for the nursery.

  4. 4

    Display a variety of stuffed animals or ceramic animals on the shelving in the nursery. Stuffed animals provide your infant a toy to play with as he ages.

  5. 5

    Select a crib mobile in a Noah’s Ark theme for your infant's crib. If you cannot find a Noah’s Ark-themed crib mobile, consider purchasing one containing a variety of realistic-looking animals.

  6. 6

    Hang curtains in your infant’s nursery in a Noah’s Ark theme. Consider purchasing curtains containing a light beige background. If you cannot find curtains to your liking, measure the nursery windows and purchase fabric you like. You may wish to sew the nursery curtains or you might want to consider hot-gluing them with a hot glue gun and glue sticks.

  7. 7

    Select crib bedding in a Noah’s Ark theme for your nursery. You may wish to purchase the crib sheets and blanket in a Noah’s Ark theme and purchase the crib skirt in a solid colour. The solid crib skirt allows you bring in an accent colour in the nursery.

  8. 8

    Replace the switch plate covers in the nursery with Noah’s Ark themed switch plate covers.
