I think decorating the nursery for baby is so much fun! With my first boy, I decorated in a cute puppy décor with a blue/brown color scheme. My second boy has a sports ball room, with some local sports team paraphernalia throughout. Tell me how you decorated your child’s room! -- Julie, Strongmoms Facilitator
My first child we did a jungle theme that we could use for all babies regardless of gender. By the time my 4th child was born, however, I was sick of it LOL! So I changed it to an animal train theme which allowed us to keep some of the same stuff, but change it up a bit. It was fun.
MommyRN what a creative way to keep some of the old, but make it new and unique! -Jess
Yes, you can get very creative when you are on a budget! LOL!
Haha - cute! Budgets do make people VERY creative! For a lot of the decor in my son's room, we took some of the free football posters that are around town for the local sports team and put them in cheap frames. They look more striking or even "vintage" but cost me just a few bucks for the frame. :-)
Cool idea Julie. I love the things that people come up with. My friend got some scrapbooking paper and cut out hearts that are about 4 inches each. She then hot glue gunned them to a beautiful thick ribbon. The strand is about 15 feet long, with hearts spaced three inches apart. She hung it over the window in her child s room. So cute! -Jess
We did something similar with my son's room. You can get large wooden letters at Michaels for not a lot of money. Then we took craft paper and glued them to the wooden letters and hung them over his bed. It was adorable for just a few bucks!!!
