I love finding DIY's around the internet and giving them a try! Here are a few of the ones I loved recently, most of which I have used in the baby's room! (number 1 and number 2)
I really love globes (the baby already has 2 in his room) and I love all of the fun DIY's that there are out there to revamp them! My favorite one, and the one I ended up trying was this DIY Wanderlust Globe from Style Me Pretty Living. I loved the dark contrast between the black water and the green continents with the beautiful gold writing on top, I couldn't resist! I went ahead and spray painted the stand gold as well because it needed a little love.
The Lovely Drawer has some adorable DIY's including these No Sew Geometric Cushions. I hate going out and buying pillows (they are so expensive!) so I am always willing to try my hand at making them, especially when it requires almost no sewing! Now, I did have to sew up a pillow to glue the leather on to, but sewing a simple square pillow is not hard at all. I love the way it turned out!
I made a similar wall hanging this year for our Christmas decorations and loved it so much I needed to make one for the baby's room too! It was one of the first things I made as soon as we found out that we were pregnant. I found this DIY, Leather and Canvas Wall Hanging from See Kate Sew. It was so easy to follow and my wall hanging looks so cute in the baby's room!
This is admittedly the third mobile I've made for little man's room and I think I finally got it right! I tried out this DIY Tassel Baby Mobile from Style Me Pretty Living and I absolutely love the way it turned out (I found my tissue paper at Target).
After making the "Oh Baby" Wall hanging above I started knitting this baby blanket based off of this Super Easy Crib Blanket from Purl Soho. It was the perfect craft for me to do while I was exhausted and a little nauseous during my first trimester. I just sat and watched hours of America's Next Top Model and Project Runway Allstars and knitted away. I'm so glad I took the time to make this for my little man! I can't wait to wrap him up in it and snuggle with him!
