Do It Yourself Nursery Decorating Art Idea

Mommy Mia’s DIY Nursery Art Decor Project 

Our Nursery Theme Pottery Barn Penelope 

DIY Baby Nursery Art 
Pottery Barn Penelope Theme
We wanted to decorate our nursery for our daughter, but we were on a budget.  Our theme was Penelope by Pottery Barn Kids.  I decided to take a stroll to Hobby Lobby and let my creative juices guide me as to how to make my own nursery decor for my daughter.  I wanted it to be cute, and also add a sentimental touch that would be meaningful to my daughter (hopefully) when she is older – assuming she will appreciate that I made it myself.  This is what I came up with. 

(Total Cost of DIY Art Nursery Project: about $20)

DIY Steps to Baby Nursery Art Decor:

Step 1:  Bought 2 of these frames from Hobby Lobby.  The frames had flowers pre-printed on it.

Bare frames from Hobby Lobby.

Step 2:  Found cute little cardboard animals/frogs cut-outs from Hobby Lobby that would match her nursery (her nursery theme is Penelope from Pottery Barn).

Step 3:  Put together random pieces of scrap paper on a piece of cardboard using a glue stick and added the cardboard cut-outs using a hot glue gun.

Step 4:  Added my signature so my daughter can one day see how much her mama loved her even before she was born.
