I have slowly been working on things for Charlie's nursery. I am still working on all of the bedding, blankets and burp rags and I have decided on a Jungle theme for his nursery. After spending a fortune on fabric for all of that, I decided I needed to try and make all of his nursery decor for as little as possible. I went to our local thrift store and found a perfectly good wood shelf and 4 frames all for 8 bucks!! I will be re-doing all of those in the coming weeks, but today I made some dollar store frames into some Jungle themed nursery decor!
Here is how I made them:
8 X 10 wood frames (I bought mine at the dollar store)
Painted Wooden Animals (I got these at my local craft store for .79 cents each)
Step 1: Paint your frame
Step 2: Cut out the letters for your animals. I used my cricut cartride Jubilee and I cut them 2" long.
Step 3: Place your cardstock in your frame and then your glass BEHIND your card-stock. This creates a hard surface.
Step 4: Glue your letters on
Step 5: Hot glue your wood animal on your card-stock.
Step 6: Glue ribbon around the edges of your frame.
Each frame ended up costing me about $2.50 after they are all done! They were super easy and they will go great in his nursery! Now I just need to decide where to hang them!!
