DIY Nursery Room Art

* This post originally appeared on my old blog, Living YOUR Creative, but has been transferred to my new blog.

What you'll need:

  • Four 6x6 canvases
  • Cricut machine
  • Create a Critter cartridge (or if using the Explore, the monkey, hippo, elephant and lamb files)
  • Plantain Schoolbook cartridge
  • Scrapbook paper/cardstock
  • Spray adhesive
  • Grey paint
  • Sponge brush

How to make them:

First, paint your canvases (two coats, letting each coat dry in between).

In the meantime, cut your background squares with the Cricut, using the square file on the Plantain Schoolbook cartridge. (Outer square 5.5", inner square 5")

Using the Create a Critter cartridge, cut the following animals in the following sizes:

  • Lamb - 4"
  • Monkey - 4.5"
  • Hippo - 3.5"
  • Elephant - 3"

Using the same cartridge, cut some background images (clouds, plants, vines, etc...) I used a mix of these from the cartridge, not necessarily the ones that corresponded with the animals I chose)

Adhere everything together with spray adhesive and let dry! And voila! Your very own adorable nursery art! There are so many options for this - I have a few more ideas in store for future babies ;) Have a great week/weekend!
