Our Favorite DIY Wall Art For Nurseries & Kids' Rooms
You've already dropped serious cash on the crib, the changing table and the glider for your babe's nursery. (And next up: The big-girl bed, the dresser and the kid-sized craft table). Luckily, there's no need to add wall art to the list of break-the-bank kiddie-decor items, too, thanks to these yes-you-can-actually-do-that DIY projects. Here, our favorites:
Why We Love It: If you're tired of tripping over toy cars and unearthing them from between the couch cushions, here's a great way to corral them once and for all. Your kids will still love looking at their rainbow collection of cars when it's on the wall (and let's be honest: you'll still have a few dozen to spare for playtime).
What You'll Need: Lots of toy cars in a rainbow of colors, a box frame, cardboard, black paint, hot glue, a hot glue gun and if you need cars in different colors, nail polish to paint them.
How to DIY: Arrange cars in color sequence in the frame. If you're missing certain colors, like pink and purple, paint some cars in three coats of nail polish in the hues you need. Paint a piece of cardboard sized to fit your frame black. Let dry. Then, hot glue the cars to the cardboard, focusing on the wheels. Let dry for a night, then place it in the frame and hang.
