I set up baby Emi’s nursery on a weekend whim, and we’ve slowly been adding to it. I had been planning on letting Caden keep his room for a while since he’s such a good sleeper and big brother is not. But now, the boys share Jaxson’s room, and it’s actually working out pretty well!
You may remember our post about the DIY dresser that we snagged off Facebook marketplace and then painted pink? Well, Marcus found that missing dresser knob in the yard! Whoohoo! The dresser was the first piece we added to her room.
Two of my favorite decor items we have created for E’s room are her circle name sign and the felt flower mobile. I learned how to make felt flowers at the workshop we had at Marken last May and couldn’t wait to make cute things!
For the mobile, I made several different variations of felt flowers from the Felt Flower Workshop with Stacy Pyron. Then mom was able to sew them using invisible thread (which is hard to see! ha!) to string them together in random order. I picked little pearls to go in between. So precious! I think it’s timeless enough that she could keep it around a while, or we could string it up like a garland when she gets older.
The second decor piece we made was the circle nursery sign. Thanks to Uncle Bren (check his page out at Re-Find Woodworks), I got a wooden circle which I had Papa stain. Then we designed her name, and had it laser cut out by Kim at Image Matters. I painted the letters - which took several coats to cover. Then I finished it off with, you guessed it, a few more felt flowers!
I’m super excited that Stacy’s coming back to offer another felt flower workshop at Marken this Saturday, Sept. 21 at 10 a.m. Tickets are $25. Registration ends Friday at noon. Hope to see you there!
