Before we begin, this is the first post of many (probably 5). I will be sharing with you my ideas for my nursery, printables I've created, and finally do a grand reveal of my nursery. If you are interested in following me as I share with you my ideas, please subscribe at the top of the page. You'll also receive updates on other projects I've been working on and other printables I've created.
This is first of my Superhero Nursery set I completed. What I love most about this project is that it’s completely my own. I designed the printable, painted the block, podged it on. It’s a simple project, but my own “brain child”.
Up until I made this project, many of the crafts I made were ideas from other amazing people. I will be sharing the links where I found these printables. It’s only fair, because they deserve the credit.
But back to this project. I need to go back a few months for you to understand the background to the set I’ve created. It all started when my husband and I found out I was pregnant. We were so excited because this is our first. One day, I was in Gordman’s looking around for holiday decorations. It was there I found these:
And I fell in love with them. Not only is it fun, but there’s a strong moral message on them which I appreciated. From then on, I really wanted a boy. Luckily, a few months later, we found out that we were having a boy. Of course, I would have loved to have a girl, but nothing seemed to stand out to me for girl nursery themes the way this one did.
And of course, after Gordman’s, I went to the best place ever, Pinterest. I found many ideas for more printables and decorations ideas. If you are interested, here is the link to my Pinterest board, Superhero Nursery. Here you can see what I liked, didn't like, what generate the ideas I've come up with for my decor.
So, back to Pinterest. When I looked up ideas for my decor, they either weren’t exactly what I wanted, weren’t available to print, or weren’t free. But hey, I have Canva! Why don’t I just design the printables I wanted?
I would make one and then another idea would present itself and I’d design another one. And so on. This is the first I created for the room.
One thing that was lacking was the presentation of my religion in this theme. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and it is a huge part of my life. Of course, I want it to be part of my decorations. Decorations should present you and your values.
One common phrase you see in Latter-Day Saint homes is, “I am a Child of God.” It’s one of our most basic beliefs that every child learns growing up. Obviously, perfect choice for a first project.
When I looked at pins of different rooms, you’ll notice that they feature all the different superheroes and not just a single one. So that’s what you’ll see in my room (at a future time). This features Captain America.
From there, it was pretty easy; get a block, paint it red, podge the printable on the block. The block wasn’t the size I wanted, but it was the only one I could find at a price I liked. So I went ahead and painted it with a different color to make it more visually interesting and ta-da! The first craft for my baby room is done!
