DIY Nautical Nursery Art

 

What you’ll need:

artwork-diy-2

  • 3 12×12 canvases
  • 3 2oz bottles of acrylic paint
  • Foam Brush
  • Vinyl
  • Contact Paper
  • Acetone (optional)

Start by cutting out the chain link background using your silhouette machine and stretch it in the studio to match your canvas size. Initially I thought I could use one chainlink background for all three canvases, but the pictures turn out much better if you used a fresh vinyl each time. The vinyl will cost less than the canvas, so in my opinion it’s worth it.

Geometric Painted Set of Children’s Blocks – DIY

finishedproduct

As a mother of a ten month old, my living room is full of brightly colored plastic toys. It seems like my son’s favorite toys are the biggest, ugliest (loudest) ones. Now that he’s starting to show interest in blocks, I’ve been looking around for a set that he and I can enjoy together (preferably one that I like to look at, since they’ll no doubt be scattered on the floor for much of the day!).

Here’s a little set of wood blocks stained and painted with geometric shapes. The bright white and metallic gold accents are so clean and modern! This little stack of blocks will look good on a living room floor as well as stacked on a shelf waiting for tiny hands to play with them.

Mason Jar Chore Chart

Is it a pain in the butt to try to keep track of who is doing which chores and don’t have a cute way to keep track, but maybe just a bunch of lists lying around the house?

Check out this adorable Mason Jar Chore list from The Crafted Sparrow. The sticks have the name of the chore, and when your kids are done with the chore, they can move their stick to the “Done” jar.

I just think this is so adorable and would look good in anyone’s house.

To check out the Mason Jar Chore Chart, check it out here.
