Nursery Decor

Hi all! I hope everyone is having a great week and has some fun planned for this weekend! It was too nice to be on the computer yesterday so I decided to save this post for today.

This is an idea for nursery decor or decor for a young child's room. My idea for this came to me while shopping in Land of Nod. If you haven't been to that store before I'll describe it as really, really cute nursery decor, but really, really expensive nursery decor. I was actually shopping at the outlet store, but unfortunately the outlet is just really expensive, instead of really, really. So I saw a framed poster similiar to this, but in blues and greens, probably suitable or a boy or girl's room. I fell in love with it. I had to have it for the girls' room. But it was ripped a little (that's why it was at the outlet store I assume) and still just about $100! Well, I wasn't about to spend $100 for a ripped poster in a cheap looking frame. So here is my version. Mine is smaller (8x10) so I only did the numbers 1-5. The original was poster sized and included 1-10. I am going to do another with 6-10 and hang them next to each other. I used mostly pink colors too because that matches the girls' bedroom. So here it is....



I used only a few sheets of My Little Shoebox patterned paper and white cardstock for this. I cut the numbers with my cricut and everything else was cut out of the patterned paper. The walls in the girls' bedroom are pink so it looks really cute against the pink background. Including the frame my version cost about $6.00.

Thanks for coming by today! Have a great day!
