15 Brilliant DIY Projects for your Nursery

We have a confession to make.

We are addicted to Pinterest. Totally hooked.

Hundreds of boards with DIY ideas and lovely things you can make at home. From beds, crafts, decors and food, you name it, Pinterest has it. And one of our favorite areas of this massive website is the nursery decors you can DIY.

Why? Because nursery decors are expensive AF and instead of spending that much money, why not DIY and spend less?

Here are just some of our favorite picks for the nursery -> Get your crafty hat on!

Why use boring coat hooks when you can inject even more personality into your nursery with this customized option! There are plenty of stencils you can buy online or download and print. Then, just simply paint it on your base board. Easy, right?

Forget about floating sheep, and this cool colored baby mobile is going to be one of a kind addition to your nursery. Even just by looking at this, you can already tell that it won’t need much effort to make. That’s what we want – simple and easy yet very eye-catching!

DIY can be glamourous and chic as well. Style doesn’t always have to cost you a limb!

6Animal Shadow Wall Art | Project  Nursery

One of my favorite ones – all kids love animals, and this project is an excellent way to turn his or her favorite animals into a piece of art. Also, this can serve as a form of learning. The older your child gets, the more he’ll grow curious about what’s hanging in his walls.

7Butterfly Baby Mobile | Heartland Paper

It’s an adorable and very easy idea that will make your little girl’s room look like a kingdom fit for a princess. I already feel magical. Imagine if there’s a nice background music playing?

8Baby clothing unit | Buzzfeed

Little fashionista living in your nursery? Make sure the fashion statements are proudly on the display using this shelf. It’s easier to access which is helpful when you got your hands full of everything else. Better yet, this would prove to be much better when you have a crying baby with a dirty diaper!

9Cute Shelves |  Buzzfeed

Shelves don’t need to be boring – incorporate them into your nursery design! You can use different shapes and sizes. That’s what I love about DIY projects. They can serve mulitple purposes which is super cool.

10Up in the Clouds | Pop Sugar

Let your baby drift off to sleep under these dreamy clouds. Remember to dust them off regularly. Some materials are great at gethering dust which can be harmful to your children. Choose a material that’s easy to clean and maintain.

11Dreamy Canopy Tent | How She Does

Create her tent and play kingdom using simple canopy tent. If you want to make your little girl feel like a princess, a canopy would certainly do the trick! You might even find your older kids hanging out here.

Boring white walls? Add a bit of sparkle and personality using golden dots. It’s simple and adds tons of character to your white walls. The plus? It’s not gender inclined.

13Bright Animal Canvas | Mod Podge Rocks

Another great project using animals from your kids’ collection – use a mix of colors or stick to the color tone used in your nursery. These would look great also in black and white or gold on white!

14Feather Baby Mobile | DIY on the Cheap

Another great alternative to boring baby mobiles! I am in-love with this piece. I wouldn’t mind having this in my room and wouldn’t care if it’s meant for a nursery.

15Painted Wall | U Create Crafts

If you’re brave and crafty, paint the nursery walls to create some dynamic in the room. Some of these can also be bought as stickers to use on the wall if you don’t want to paint. You can get any more artsy than this. The entire wall is your canvas whether you DIY it or have an artist paint a pretty picture on it.
