Inexpensive Nursery Wall Decor

My babies are not babies anymore.  Nothing says that more than saying goodbye to their nursery and turning it into a kid’s room.  Before I took it down, I thought I would share my inexpensive nursery wall decor.  It was simple, quick, and cheap.

Inexpensive Nursery Wall Decor – Stars!

I completely underestimated how emotional turning the nursery into a kid’s room would be.  I remember when I was pregnant with Little Miss and wanting to find inexpensive nursery wall decor that I wasn’t afraid of hanging over her crib.  I decided that the lightest thing that could possibly fall on her head, and not suffocate her, was paper.  And since we didn’t find out the sex of either of our babies, we wanted to make sure that the theme was more gender neutral.  We went with stars.

I bought a book of paper and started folding and cutting stars.  I found a quick tutorial from Little Birdie Secrets.

I hung them over the crib with a piece of sticky tacky.

When Mr. Monster arrived, we moved the nursery into a bigger room and moved the stars to a little space on the wall next to the closet.  They led up to the moon night light.

Inexpensive Nursery Wall Decor – Alphabet Collage!

One of the first ideas I loved on Pinterest was an alphabet wall.  When I headed to the craft store I got sticker shock.  Each letter was going to cost almost $2, which made this seemingly inexpensive project almost $50.

Instead, I purchased two packs of die-cut letters.  They were smaller than my original idea, but really, they fit the wall perfectly.

To make the letters thicker, I glued two of them together.  (hence buying 2 packs)

I painted the sides and attached paper from the same book of paper I bought for the stars.

Poof, an alphabet wall that cost less than $10!  That’s what I call inexpensive nursery wall decor.

Now that the nursery decor is down, we have begun putting together the new “Big Kids” room.  Stay tuned!  I’ll be sharing this new room soon!
