Earlier this week, I wrote about choosing the right anime for your kids. If you did your homework and watched every single film and show on that list, then you’ve no doubt fallen in love with the work of Studio Ghibli and want to furnish your entire home in adorable forest spirits.
Well, settle down. Let’s take it one step at a time. Why not start with your kids’ room or nursery? The fact is, people love slappin’ Totoro on just about anything. In some parts of the world, he’s even more recognizable than Mickey Mouse. He’s definitely cuter. But seriously, some of the crafts that people come up with for Totoro and friends are seriously insane, and, lucky for us, easily purchasable online.
If you’re handy with a paintbrush, you could paint a mural like these parents (or hire someone to do it for you). Or, you could snag some gorgeous artwork off Etsy.
You can even download a pattern to make your own from this savvy forum-user on Craftster.
Perfect for your own little forest spirit.
