Back when I created the nursery mood board I mentioned that I had found some really cute woodland animal cutouts from the Silhouette store. I knew that I wanted to incorporate them somehow and I finally decided on making some art to hang on the nursery.
I picked up six flat canvas boards to use as backgrounds. I also picked out three paint colors that matched the papers I picked out as well and the rest of the room colors. The colors I grabbed where Indian Turquoise Barn Wood and Irish Moss.
To give the canvas a sharp border I used a one inch frog tape around the edges of the canvas. It’s pretty similar to what the creator of the cutouts did on her blog post here.
It took about three coats to get a good full coverage of the colors. Once they were dry I just peeled off the tape.
As for the animals I just adjusted the sizes and cut them out using my silhouette. I used glue to assemble the layers of the animals and then I used sticky glue dots to attach them to the canvas.
I love how all the animals turned out. I think they are just so cute and fill up this wall without being too much.
Chris helped me line everything up over the dressers and we used 3m velcro tabs to hang up all the canvases.
I think that pretty much concludes the nursery! Stay tuned for the final reveal. I’ve finally picked up and I’ve got a few more fun decorative finishes to share.
