Turn your little wrestling fan's bedroom into a wrestling ring where he can live out his dream matches and entertain his friends. Use the insignia of his favourite wrestling organisation or the images of his favourite wrestlers to personalise the room, if he has favourites. Include padded details if your child and his friends will likely act out their favourite matches or create their own. Add as many realistic details to the room as you want.
Things you need
Paint or wall murals
Paint the walls to make the room feel like it's in the centre of the wrestling ring, or use peel-and-stick decals. There should be three ropes that go around the room, typically in red and blue. Create a crowd of blurry faces with random signs featuring your child's name or her favourite wrestler's name.
Keep the furniture simple and plain, or paint it to match the walls. There are novelty beds available that mimic a wrestling ring if you want to go all-out.
Use wrestling-themed bedding that features the logos from the wrestling league your child likes or the wrestlers that your child likes the best. Use solid-coloured bedding in your child's favourite colours, if the walls are busy.
Place a padded rug in the centre of the floor. Look for a rug with a wrestling logo.
Hang framed posters of your child's favourite wrestlers, replicas of championship belts or install shelves to display collectibles.
Accessorise the bedroom with items that complement the wrestling theme and add an authentic feel. For example, hang a large microphone from the ceiling in the middle of the room like the announcer would use. Add thick black padding to the corners of the room, bed posts or anywhere else it would look natural. There are novelty items available, such as nightlights, lamps and throw pillows, that will fit in with the wrestling theme.
