A few years ago I was visiting Catalina Island and I came across a little art exhibit where I found this fabulous Dr. Seuss wall hanging and I was instantly smitten…

If I could have afforded it at the time (I’m talking several thousand dollars), this baby would have come home with me. Not only did I think it was simply awesome, but a rush of Dr. Seuss childhood memories swept through my brain. Instant natural high.

Luckily your kids don’t have to wait to randomly stumble upon some fantastic Dr. Seuss decor. You can easily create it for them. Here are some wonderful tutorials that will transform your kids’ room into their own personal Seussville.

Debbie from Painted Therapy gave an old dresser a little Dr. Seuss flair with a Dr. Seuss quote. She even named the dresser Theodore, after Mr. Seuss himself.
