Asher’s Elephant Nursery


Asher's Elephant Nursery

Design Inspiration

I have always loved elephants!  When we learned we were expecting our second baby boy, we wanted something classic & fresh to go with our existing light blue wall color & dark wood furniture. We decided on a gray, navy & white color scheme and elephants became the primary theme.

Favorite Items

The Elephant Mobile is my favorite item.  I was definitely a time-consuming labor of love, but I love the finished product!

Thank you, Shana! I'm sorry- I don't have a tutorial on the mobile. I basically just looked at pictures of them on Etsy and made it up as I went. I used a 12' diameter wire ring, ribbon, clear jewelry wire, cardstock, a Martha Stewart elephant scrapbook punch, and Mod Podge to stick two elephants together with the jewelry wire in between. I hope this helps. Here's a great tutorial on the yarn wrapped letters. When finished, I sprayed them lightly with hairspray to set everything.

Thanks again!

Thank you, Jan! My husband was especially glad that he didn't have to repaint! You're right; Asher is mesmerized by his dancing elephants.

Perfect! I like the light blue walls with the gray and navy color combination. It really made the room look so much brighter. I bet Asher really likes looking at all of the dancing elephants above him when you are rocking him!
