DIY Nursery Wall Art Idea

We fell in love with this sweet DIY nursery wall art idea from Aedriel Originals. It’s a unique and inexpensive way to add color and character to your child’s new room (plus, how cute is baby Kate?). To add a personal touch, Aedriel suggests using fabric that has a story to tell. “What about an embroidered hankie of your grandmother’s, or a favorite dress you wore as a child?” she says. “All the important women in your daughter’s life could provide a fabric swatch.” What You Need: 1. Embroidery hoop (you can find these for less than $2 at Joann.com or a crafts store) 2. A scrap piece of fabric that is a few inches wider than the hoop 3. Scissors 4. Elmer’s Glue 5. Wooden letters (we found tons of options on Etsy) For the full instructions, visit Aedriel’s blog here. Need more nursery inspiration? Follow The Bump on Pinterest. Tell us about your nursery!
