If you are getting ready for another baby, this is the perfect time to dream up inexpensive ways to freshen up a space for a new little person joining the family. Here are a number of fun baby nursery ideas that you could do with very little cost!
DIY Baby Nursery Ideas
I love the idea of simply updating walls in the kids’ rooms with stencils rather than repainting the entire thing. It keeps things simple and frugal.
A DIY no-sew crib skirt. Now that’s what I’m talking about.
Pick out your favorite fabrics and make these super easy burp cloths that last a really long time.
Use the pages from an alphabet book to frame and hang on the wall. You can also do this with pages of flower magazines, leaf prints etc. Anything in a group always looks fancier than one image!
The most expensive, but more important piece of a nursery is the chair. These beautiful upholstered rocking chairs can cost around $1,000. Buy a Strandmon Wingback chair from IKEA for $279, get some rocker rails for a few dollars and you’ve saved a few hundred dollars.
Baby Book Personalized Letters
I searched high and low for the origin of this picture. If you know where it came from, leave a comment below. Buy a letter from the craft store and use a page from your favorite children’s book to be glued/Mod Poged on. I did this over Christmas so check out the steps (it’s super easy).
This faux bear rug is cute, whimsical and perfect for a kid’s bedroom. If it doesn’t look perfect your kid won’t even notice!
It can be a little scary to think about doorstops and babies going together. This is one you don’t have to worry about harming your kids because it’s soft, fairly lightweight with no scary, blunt edges.
Find scraps of cute fabric and put them in embroidery hoops which can be found for around $1 or less at the craft store. This is a great way to brighten a room and add some interest to the walls.
I’ve also seen tutorials for using old CDs to make these dividers. What a great idea to keep organized.
