Kate in her new room

We fell in love with this sweet DIY nursery wall art idea from Aedriel Originals. It’s a unique and inexpensive way to add color and character to your child’s new room (plus, how cute is baby Kate?).

To add a personal touch, Aedriel suggests using fabric that has a story to tell. “What about an embroidered hankie of your grandmother’s, or a favorite dress you wore as a child?” she says. “All the important women in your daughter’s life could provide a fabric swatch.”

What You Need:

1. Embroidery hoop (you can find these for less than $2 at Joann.com or a crafts store)

2. A scrap piece of fabric that is a few inches wider than the hoop

3. Scissors

4. Elmer’s Glue

5. Wooden letters (we found tons of options on Etsy)
