Calling All Stranger Things Fans: Transform Your Room into a Hawkins Portal!

Hey there, fellow Stranger Things fanatics! If you’re like me, you’ve probably spent hours wishing you could hop on your bike and join Dustin, Mike, Lucas, and Will on their crazy adventures in Hawkins. Well, while we might not be able to battle Demogorgons or open a gate to the Upside Down, we can  bring a slice of Hawkins into our own spaces.

Today, I’m sharing tons of awesome ways to turn your room into the ultimate Stranger Things tribute.  We’ll cover everything from channeling the Upside Down’s eerie vibes to rocking that retro 80s style, plus where to snag the coolest props!

The Upside Down in Your Own Room

1. Light it Up (Like Joyce Byers Did!)

Let’s be real, the most iconic image from Stranger Things has to be Joyce Byers’ living room covered in Christmas lights, communicating with Will trapped in the Upside Down. Replicate this unforgettable scene with your very own alphabet wall!

You’ll need:

  • Multicolored string lights (lots of them!)
  • Black paint or dark fabric
  • Chalk or white marker

Paint a section of your wall black (or drape fabric) and carefully map out the alphabet. Then, hang your lights to spell out messages, your favorite quotes, or just create that awesome glowing effect!

2. Embrace the Eerie

The Upside Down isn’t exactly sunshine and rainbows. It’s dark, a little spooky, and always feels just slightly…off. To capture this in your room:

  • Dim the Lights: Swap out bright overhead lights for lamps with warm bulbs or even try colored lighting for a supernatural feel.
  • Forest Vibes: Go for a dark wallpaper with a forest pattern, or create a mural of the creepy Upside Down woods.
  • A Touch of Spooky: Add a few tasteful “monster-y” elements, like shadowy figures, vines, or fake cobwebs (but don’t overdo it!).

Welcome to the 80s!

Stranger Things is a nostalgia overload! Recreate those killer 80s vibes with these decor ideas:

3. Retro Furniture FTW

Forget boring, modern furniture. Your Stranger Things room needs a funky 80s makeover! Here’s where to look:

  • Thrift Stores: A treasure trove of wild 80s patterns and shapes. Think neon plastic chairs, mismatched lamps, or a giant bean bag chair.
  • Vintage Shops: For slightly higher-quality finds and to snag a specific piece like that iconic rotary phone or a classic boombox.
  • Online Marketplaces: Search for retro goodies or even DIY some furniture with vibrant paint and bold stencils.

4. Wall of Nostalgia

Nothing screams 80s like awesome pop culture references! Cover your walls with:

  • Movie Posters: Jaws, E.T., Ghostbusters…find prints of your favorite 80s blockbusters.
  • Band Posters: Duran Duran, The Clash, Madonna…celebrate the iconic music of the era.
  • Arcade Art: Find prints or posters of classic arcade games like Pac-Man or Space Invaders.

Iconic Stranger Things Props

Now, let’s add those details that make a true fan’s heart sing!

5. Join the Hellfire Club

Are you a Dungeons & Dragons warrior like the gang? Proudly display your Hellfire Club membership!

  • T-shirts & Merch: Rock the iconic Hellfire Club logo on a tee, hoodie, or even a patch for your backpack.
  • Your Own D&D Corner: Set up a small table with your D&D books, dice, figurines, and a battle map!
  • Eddie Munson Shrine: Did Eddie totally rock your world? Dedicate a corner to the ultimate metalhead with his posters, guitar picks, or even a replica of his epic guitar.

6. Embrace Hawkins

Pay homage to the weird and wonderful town where it all started.

  • Street Signs: Look for replicas of Hawkins street signs or create your own.
  • School Spirit: Snag an A.V. Club poster or Hawkins Middle School pennant.
  • Lab Warnings: “Danger! Restricted Area” type signs add to the mysterious Hawkins lab vibe.

Beware the Demogorgon!

For that ultimate “creature feature” touch, incorporate the terrifying Demogorgon into your decor.

  • Figure or Statue: Find a detailed (and super creepy!) Demogorgon figure to lurk on a shelf.
  • Wall Decal or Poster: Opt for a huge Demogorgon graphic for a truly terrifying focal point.
  • DIY Silhouette: Feeling artsy? Cut out a menacing Demogorgon silhouette from black paper for a unique wall art piece.
