There are so many expensive items for expectant parents to buy to prepare for the birth of their little bundle of joy and it can seem overwhelming. By making some items for the nursery yourself you can save some money and put those special personal touches on the room that you and your little one will spend so much time in.
2. Knit a Blanket
If you have the ability to knit, now would be the perfect time to knit a blanket for your baby in the colours of the nursery. This would be perfect to drape over your rocking chair and knitting is a relaxing activity.
3. Decorate Picture Frames
Buy plain wooden frames from your arts and crafts store and paint and glue adornments on them. This would be a great frame to put your first family photo in or a hand and footprint for once baby is born.
4. Personalized Touches
8. Make Storage Baskets
10. Decorate the dresser
If you are repurposing a dresser or have a dresser that you feel is a little plain then doing ombre colors on the drawers is a great way to add interest. Pick paint colors that get progressively darker as you go from top to bottom or do an antique finish all over.
