I had some extra glass jars from Goodwill (usually you can find in the kitchen section!). Then I purchased some toy animals from Michael’s and some green spray paint (again, we’re doing green accent colors in the nursery). Glued them on and you have fun animal themed glass jars for organizing! For now, have the mittens in one, socks in another (so easy to lose otherwise!) and pacifiers in another. I’m sure this will get switched up as we see what works and what we need out!
For the dresser that is holding the clothes in the baby room, I made my own drawer dividers. Super easy, does not take much time at all!.
All you need:
- Extra fabric
- Hot glue gun
Measure out the length and width of each drawer, then cut the sizes out of cardboard that you need. I then hot glued the fabric on. After that was done, I measured out thirds and did cuts into opposite sides of each so I could slide them onto each other. Makes it easy to divide up the pants, onesies, etc!!!
I had seen a variety of felt mobiles on pinterest and I had a plethora of extra felt. All the ones I saw weren’t quite the color schemes I wanted (and I had the supplies), so I decided to make my own forest animals to go with our woodsy/green theme in the room. The mobile base itself was easy to purchase (and inexpensive) from Amazon (although I may end up switching it up for a wooden one later on). All I needed otherwise was the felt, embroidery thread and stuffing which I had (and some wooden accent beads I had as well). If you’re not crafty, there are some amazing ones you can find on Etsy to purchase! Check them out- there’s a ton of options.
Onward with baby room/nursery projects. We have less than 4 weeks left (+/- since you can’t predict!) so we’re finishing up the room! (And I’m finishing up my crafty parts of it). For the recliner (amazing and so comfortable), I wanted an accent pillow…and my husband wanted green. Thus with some scrap fabric, made a fantastic pillow cover that I can take off and wash and brings a couple different greens into the room! And yes, the painting in the background I did as well- Lava Lake, Big Sky, Montana.
