My sister is pregnant with her third child. She has two boys already so most of her house and mine where the boys stay is all boy every where. This last one is going to be a girl!!! Girls are fun. You get to dress them up in so many cute clothes and pink and frilly things. Not that boys aren’t fun, but I sure do love all the things that come with having a girl.. well minus the attitude that they get later on. So I wanted to transform a corner of my room to be more girly and so she would have her own little haven amidst all the boy blue. I am going to show you how to “girlify” a nursery.
Walmart has the most precious Disney Baby bedding sets right now that oh I wish they had when my little girl was a baby. Right up my alley with the pink and polka dots and of course Minnie Mouse. The bedding I picked out is called Minnie Happy Day. It comes with a pink chevron pattern sheet, dust ruffle and the cutest pink and aqua comforter with Minnie Mouse on it. Seriously I want one in queen size to put on my bed!
Right now I have my running medals as well as the extra baby stuff in one corner of my room. My sister comes over a lot and I watch the kids for her so I need to have somewhere for them to sleep. I decided to spruce up the corner a bit and make it girly. I always have extra canvas in my craft room for the kids to do art work on whenever they feel like it. So I decided to take the canvas as well as some of the Disney Baby Minnie Happy Day receiving blankets and turn it in to easy artwork.
This project only took me about 5 minutes to make.
Here is what you need:
2 of the 4 receiving blankets
4 8×10″ wrapped canvas
Tube of Tacky Glue
Command Strips and Hooks
The blankets had creases in them so I started by ironing the creases out. I didn’t quite get them all out, so if it bothers you to have any crease then you might want to wash the blankets first then dry before starting this project.
The next step is to cut the receiving blankets with about 2″ border around the canvas.
Lastly you will glue down the edges of the blanket to the canvas. You could possibly staple it as well, but the tacky glue was so easy and holds the fabric well. When you do the corners try and make a nice edge like you would with a present. I am not the best at present wrapping so just ignore my corners. Haha
And just like that you have artwork that will match the bedding. Once the baby gets older and change themes for the room, you can take the fabric off the canvas and rewrap it or paint it to go along with the new room. We also picked up some wooden letters that we painted pink and white to go along with the canvas prints. Since these will be temporary decorations, I hung them with the Command Strips and hooks that are easily removed and won’t damage my walls. Easy peasy way of how to “girlify” a nursery.
I love our new little corner for Miss C. Just because she is following two big brothers does not mean that she can’t have a girly space all her own and it doesn’t have to cost a lot of money to bring some cuteness and pink. What other ways do you have to make a nursery more girly with a full room overhaul?
