DIY Nursery Wall Art

So, as many of you are well aware, the main colors of the nursery are turquoise and white, with pink accents throughout. I've been trying to think of a way to pull more pink into the room, and ALSO, I've been trying to think of something to put on the wall across from the tree mural, which was completely blank.

I would not call myself a crafty person by any means, but I had an idea for some DIY wall art that I thought would be simple enough even for me. I actually like how they turned out, but you'll have to use your imagination a bit, because I can't seem to get a good picture depicting the color--the background color is a bright fuchsia pink. The white actually has a bit of a shimmer to it.

I know it's not earth shattering, and it's not perfect, but I hope that it will reference all the colors in the room nicely, and it really was super easy--I bought 5 pieces of scrapbook paper, and two 12x 12 white frames. In total, I think it cost $16. Then, I found a silhouette of a bird online, printed it off, and traced it onto the scrapbook paper. I used a glue stick to glue it all together. The end!

  1. These look awesome! We are doing similar colors in our nursery. Where did you get the 12x12 frames? I've been to Michael's but only found 8x10 and 11x14... maybe I need to look again.
