DIY: Hanging branch- there are lots of pretty bird mobiles online but they are so expensive. I found this driftwood branch at Marshalls and I used little flowers and birds from Hobby Lobby to decorate it and hung it with clear wire. I used my Cricut machine to cut laminate and make the heart on the tree (which stands for me and my husbands initials and also for "everyone loves Henry") and the accents on the windows. I bought neutral cubby bins at Target and used wool felt to decorate them. I then hand stitched them to give them a more finished look. Fyi: it is much easier to trace or draw on the back of the felt first before cutting and use a glue gun to adhere. I used wall Velcro to adhere the lion to the picture frame without the glass which has a cool 3d look in person. The bears on the lamps are cut out of paper and adhered to the interior of the lamp.
Favorite items: I love the bear pillow ( which is double sided) and the koala tree decal. I worried about what I could use because I was so scared to put anything on the wall that could fall in the crib.
Don't buy everything at baby stores when there are so many options online. You can find wonderfully made, one of a kind pieces on Etsy. And to save money on art for your walls, use pages from books with beautiful art or fun greeting cards instead. So Good For Little Bunnies and Hondo and Fabian are two books that are good examples.
