Babies are expensive – have you heard? I love to decorate but we try to live as inexpensively as we can around here (more on budgeting here) – so I got thrifty (and a TINY bit crafty) for my kids’ nurseries.
Best news? This DIY nursery art is super simple to pull off, even if you’re not a crafty person.
The lighting in these photos is terrible, but this should give you the idea!
MAKE YOUR OWN! Here’s how:
- Choose some simple shapes that match your nursery theme. I used an anchor and a boat for my son’s green and blue nautical room, and a heart for my daughter’s pale pink and cream “antique music” themed room.
- Choose two complementary styles of scrapbook paper from your local craft store. I recommend one solid color and one pattern.
- Choose your frames. This will determine the size of your cutouts.
- Cut your background paper to fit the frame.
- Sketch your design (Google images can be your helper if you need inspiration – or if free drawing isn’t your thing, you could print out a picture and trace it!).
- Cut and paste!
* If you want to incorporate some of these cute little sayings into your design, you can head over to project nursery to find some free printables!
* For the middle picture in my son’s room, I just cut my chevron scrapbook paper down to letter size, loaded it in my printer, and then typed up the quote and printed it out.
