Right before Kaylee was born, I painted her room a really pretty green. Celery green. It matched the shabby chic rose bedding that I bought for her crib, but that’s as far as I got with any sort of decor. I’ve been wanting to do owls in her room for a long time and when I saw this idea on Brittney’s Budget Crafts, I got started!! It was perfect! We are a military family and one thing that is certain about being in the military is that you are going to move.
I didn’t know that you could use spray starch to apply fabric to a wall. It worked great! I sprayed the fabric for the tree until it was SOAKED, applied it to the wall (it’s a little tricky, but straight pins help hold it into place) and let it dry completely. To remove it, just peel it off! My boys thought that the tree needed a hole in it for an animal. So I hot glued a piece of black felt on it. They want a squirrel to live in it, but I haven’t figured out how to make a cute squirrel to put in it…yet. They also thought I should add a few little birds. I think I might later on. I love having input from my kids!
I think it is looking really cute so far! And I haven’t had to spend any money except for that piece of fabric that I bought a couple of months ago. Eventually I’d like to make her a blanket for her toddler bed, but since she is still in a crib, that can wait.
