Decorating a baby’s nursery is so much fun! Once you choose a theme, you can easily make your own decorations to add a special personal touch. Making your own nursery decorations can also save you a lot of money.
When I was decorating my daughter’s nursery, I just knew I wanted to hang a nursery wall letter. I’ve always thought they were a really cute decoration, and they were very popular when I was pregnant with her. I shopped around for a nursery wall letter, and found some really beautiful ones, but they were so expensive. I just couldn’t bring myself to spend that much money on something I could make myself.
I’m not really a very crafty person, so I was a bit fearful going into this project. It really was a lot easier than I thought it would be, and I am very happy with the result.
The first thing you need for this project is a wooden letter, of course. You’ll want to determine what size and color you want the letter to be. You can find nursery wall letters already in the color you want, or you can get one that is not painted yet and paint it yourself. I found an 18″ letter that had not been painted yet, and I painted it with Master’s Touch Light Purple Acrylic Paint. Kayleigh’s nursery colors were purple, green and yellow, and this paint color matched perfectly. I put two coats of paint on the letter, and still had plenty of paint left for other craft projects, like a picture frame I painted for her nursery, too.
Next, you will want to find some cute embellishments to add to your nursery wall letter. There are so many great choices available, and you’re sure to find something that will fit your theme perfectly. Kayleigh’s nursery was jungle-themed, and I fell in love with these adorable wood & felt painted giraffe, monkey and lion shapes from Hobby Lobby. Glue your embellishments to your nursery wall letter. I used wood glue since my embellishments were wooden & felt material.
You can personalize your nursery wall letter further by spelling out your child’s full name on it. I found some cute yellow foam sticker letters at The Dollar Tree to spell out KAYLEIGH.
You can add an extra touch of cuteness to your nursery wall letter with a pretty ribbon, bow, flower, etc. I added a purple ribbon in the center of my nursery wall letter that was a bit darker than the purple paint I had used. This nursery wall letter was so much fun to make, and I am very pleased with the result!
