When we started thinking about how to decorate George’s room, I knew that I wanted something simple but also unique and personal to us. Most of our art in our house is homemade, and I wanted the same for George’s nursery.
I saw a few things on Pinterest, and then thought about our wedding guest book and combined the ideas.
We thought it would be cute to do something similar with our kids and the baby showers.
So I tried my hand at drawing and painting.
I made a stencil for the elephant.
I tried doing the potato stamp for the balloons, but it did not work. I resorted to making an oval stencil and traced balloons all over. As I painted in the ovals, I added the little balloon knot with the paint brush. I kind of randomly alternated the blue and orange.
My mom then helped with the strings. We just used a thin point sharpie to make the strings and the features on the elephant.
We had silver and black sharpies for the shower guests to sign a little note for George. In hindsight, I wish we would have only used one color of sharpie, but it still is great none the less.
Once George was born, my mom painted the date and his name on it. She has a much steadier hand than I do.
Now this hangs over his crib.
I really love how it turned out. It is super easy, and I love the personal messages.
Have you made art for your home?
Aw, I love that you made this for his room! How special! It looks great 🙂
Thanks! I love it! Hopefully someday George will appreciate it too.
You are simply amazing girl! This is such a GREAT idea.
Aww thanks! You are too sweet!
Oh my gosh!!! Was a beautiful idea!! It turned out great!
Thanks! We are really happy with the results!
What a great idea! And so personal. I love it!
That’s what we were going for!
I absolutely love it!!! What a fun and unique idea to get everyone involved!!!!
That’s what we love about it. It’s like a little piece of people who are so important to us overlooking him at all times.
Such a cute idea, love it! I love homemade anything, it’s more sentimental and definitely more fulfilling 😉 The only homemade art that’s hanging is something I painted at a painting party. Not the best, but my husband was proud of it!
We are all about homemade things. I can’t wait until George is old enough to partake in the craftiness.
What a cute idea!!! I love that there’s something from all your loved ones hanging in your little guy’s room! 🙂
Thanks! It really adds a special touch to the room.
This is so adorable! I love it.
Thanks! We love it too!
