I wanted to share with you a little project I have been working on for the last few months. I L-O-V-E decorating. I’m not sure if I’m good at it, but I love the way our house looks. That’s all that matters right? But I especially love decorating my kids’ rooms. I plan on sharing all of these with you, but the first one is Sweet Sadie’s room.
I was so excited when we found out we had a little girl on the way. Don’t get me wrong, I loved being a Boy Mom but I wanted a baby girl so badly. So once I was did some damage buying clothes and bows, it was time for the room. I had such a hard time picking a theme. Sadie being my first girl, I didn’t know how to pick a theme. I love a good themed nursery. Should I do floral, modern, princess, country chic, and the list goes on and on. But then I came across this pin, and the rest was history. I was going to do a fairy/woodland forest theme. That way I could combine my love for flowers and fairies, well fairy princesses.
I went pinning crazy!
If you want to see all the ideas I came across, check out my Woodland Fairy Nursery Board on Pinterest.
The first two items I made are probably my two favorite pieces of her room. Now, like I said I found a majority of these ideas on Pinterest. I just added a few things here and there to make it my own. I don’t want to make it sound like these were all original ideas.
The first item is the door wreath. I made it using an old bike tire rim that I found at a local antique festival. I picked up the greenery and flowers at Michael’s, they have the best floral selection in my opinion. Their stuff can be a little expensive so I usually just wait till they run the items I want on sale. Once I had my supplies, I sat down and played around with my items until I found a design I liked. Here is my finished wreath.
The next item I made was the mobile. It ended up going above her door instead of the crib, but I absolutely love how it came out. I used a wicker wreath from Hobby Lobby, greenery and flowers from Michael’s, as well as the lights. I wrapped the wreath with the greenery, then the lights, and lastly stuck the flowers throughout the wreath. I used some burlap string I had at the house from a previous project to hang it.
Next up was her collage wall. I found the signs at Hobby Lobby. I still plan to add something in that spot on the top left, but haven’t found the right piece yet.
These little signs were made with my silhouette. These things took FOREVER to make, but I love how they came out. I painted all the floral designs myself using some tutorials I found on Pinterest. If you’re a Josh Abbott Band fan, one of the signs should sound familiar. If you’re not, but like country, you should check them out.
Next is her fairy village. I found all the houses at Michael’s and Hobby Lobby. Can you tell I have a slight addiction to these stores yet? I’m pretty sure they’re a four letter word to my husband by this point. Anyways, I just used moss from a bag as the greenery. I made the little rope ladder using burlap string and sticks found in the fairy village section at the craft stores. Most of them light up too, it looks pretty neat at night.
The last item I would like to feature is this little piece by her bed.
Now this was probably the most tedious item I made. I wanted it to look look like the flowers were floating, so I decided to use invisible sewing thread (shaking my head as I type this) to hang them. It was SO SO SO HARD to tie each of those flowers. That string truly is invisible. The stick is actually one of these, Twinkle Stars Willow Branch, just turned sideways.
Here is the rest of her little woodland hideaway.
I hope you enjoyed checking out my little girl’s room. She seems to really enjoy it. Well as long as she’s not actually having to sleep in there. That’s what mommy and daddy’s bed is for, but that is a whole other blog entry…
If you want to try out some of these ideas, don’t forget to give this a pin.
