Part One – 3 Adorable Nursery DIYs Under $10

Okay, it might be early to pull this out of the hat because it might just be my best DIY project ever and I only have, like, three ;). Alright I have more than three (probably) but anyways I am off track two sentences in.

I love how easy, diverse, fast and cheap this is. I did this project when I was getting my son’s nursery ready, so I did it in the colour theme I had going for his room but the possibilities are endless. Not only can you use these for a quick decor update in any room, you could do seasonal colours or holiday colours and you can use different sizes of canvas, different widths of painters tape and with no artistic talent necessary, (that’s my jam) you can create a great piece.


I bought all of these at the dollar store, if there is one thing I would perhaps buy at a craft store it would be the paint brushes – I lucked out finding decent ones at the dollar store this time but sometimes the only ones you can find there aren’t worth the savings.


Acrylic Paint

Painters Tape (thick for bigger canvas, narrow for the little ones)


Paint Pallet (or a plate!)


Use the painters tape to create the desired pattern, the options are endless! Here are some examples of the ones I did:
