Now that my boy is 6 months old, he will soon be moving into his very own room! Which made me think, “hey, maybe I should finish the baby’s room”. Yeah I’m not a mom who had the nursery done months in advance, but who is?! (Every new mom I know on Facebook, apparently). But I did know what the theme would be well before I was ever pregnant, and that would be WOODLAND.
I wanted to share some of the DIY decor I’ve finally gotten up on the walls. While the overall look may still be a little sparse, there are a few woodland pieces I genuinely love.
My momma was rocked in this chair and she made her first grandbaby a woodland theme appropriate and cozy quilt. The branch curtains come from TJ Maxx, while the metal bear and arrow can be found at Hobby Lobby.
What is a woodland theme without actually bringing in some wood?! I finally completed my long planned “R” using cardboard and dead branches from our woodland yard. Simply draw (use a ruler!) and cut out your letter with a box cutter or exacto-knife. Cut dead branches to size (mine were mostly cut to 3.5″) and hot glue away!
You know I love my DIY chalkboard art! This Dr. Suess quote looks great in a salvaged and sanded frame.
More mountains can be found in this sweet shelf my Dad made with scrap wood, based on a picture I found online. It was stained, sealed, and snowy tips were painted with chalk paint.
You may recognize a certain sleepy time owl in this DIY toybox. This is simply a cardboard box covered in woodland theme appropriate fabric. Cut fabric to size and glue on using craft glue or spray glue, smooth well and fold for clean edges.
A pattern for this DIY changing pad cover is coming soon! Chunky thighs not included, but how cute is this woodland fabric?!
This is my absolute favorite piece! I found this rustic metal moose head at a flea market/antique fair. My Dad was able to make a background for it using scrap pallet wood. While I originally planned on staining it, I ended up loving the color variation of the wood so we simply sealed it. We even found some rusty nails to attach the moose!
