We created our own animal 3-D wall art for our nursery that was super easy, fairly inexpensive, and matched our bedding!
colorful, full of textures
We fell in love with the bright colors of this animal bedding. We knew we did not have the artistic design to paint the design on the wall so we opted for making 3-D wall art. We traced the designs and used a transparency projector to blow up the shapes against a piece of plywood. We sawed out the plywood shape and covered it many times in batting. The bedding has a variety of textures and we wanted Noah's room to be the same, and be interesting to him to see and feel. So we searched fabric warehouses for the same color and textures of fabric and got as close as we could! We covered our plywood shapes in this fabric and hung them on the wall! It was totally something that a non-artist 1st time mom and dad could do together and have an awesome looking nursery!
Giraffe- Melissa and Doug
Noah framed name art- made by a friend by decoupaging scrapbook paper and buttons together
Chair/Ottoman- Little Castle , ordered on walmart.com
Noah's name painted on the wall was something I envisioned for months and so fun to watch it pull the whole room together!
My other favorite feature is that we actually had to move only a year after our son was born..and because the wall art was not painted on, we got to take it all with us and reproduced his exact same room in the new house!
Anyone can do this!

[…] Noah’s Nursery by jennyandtrent […]
Tuesday 31st of July 2012
Where did you get your bedding? Yours is the best Noah's Ark bedding I have found, and I cannot find it anywhere. Also, did you use stencils and paint to do the Psalm quote? My husband and I wanted to do Bible versus on the wall, but I was not sure how I should go about doing that.

You must be really good at using the saw and at cutting wood to be able to do those animals well with their little curves. I find this a very unique idea because I have't seen anyone here so far who has thought about cutting forms and shapes and then covering them with fabric before putting them on the wall.
