DIY Animal Mason Jars [Lily’s Nursery]

Hello friends!

I have another quick, DIY for you today! I saw these adorable animal topped mason jars on Pinterest and I knew I had to make my own!

I haven’t decided exactly what I am going to do with these or where I am going to put them, but I’m sure I will think of something!

For this DIY, you will need:

Mason jars, I used two different sizes

Animals, I found these adorable elephants from Goodwill

Paint Brush

Modge Podge

Glitter

Paint

Tape

Hot Glue Gun

I started off by painting the jars to my liking. I taped off the bottom portion of both. I used the mint green on one and put glitter on the other.

To make the glitter stay and not flake off, you will want to layer 2-3 coats of modge podge and glitter. Make sure you allow it to dry in between coats and that your final layer is modge podge.

Next, I hot glued my elephants to the lids of the mason jars and painted them with my desired colors!

Once everything is dry, screw the lids on the jars and you are done! So simple but so cute!

Thank you so much for all of your love and support!

DIY Fabric Banner [Lily’s Nursery]

 

Hello Friends!

I am super excited about this post and some futures posts because they are all DIY decor for my baby girl’s room!

This post is going to show you how I made this adorable fabric banner! It is so simple but makes a great addition to any room! I am thinking of making another one to go above our bed!

For a medium sized banner like mine, you will need:

4-5 half yards of fabric

scissors

ribbon/lace

 3 yards jute cord/ twine

All of my supplies were purchased at Hobby Lobby and Walmart.

First, you want to fold your fabric in half. I folded mine horizontally so I had long strips of fabric.

Make small cuts every 1/2 inch or so on your fabric and rip down to the bottom. This does not make perfect strips and there will be strings. If you want a more clean look, cut all the way down for each strip.

To add your fabric to the twine, the first thing you want to do is fold one strip in half creating a loop in the middle.

Lay the jute/twine over the loop and then pull the two ends of fabric through the loop. Pull until the knot around the twin is tight.

Knotting your fabric this way ensures that the front of the fabric is what you see when your banner is hanging.

After about an hour worth of work here it is! I am so in love with how it looks and its a perfect addition to Lily’s room!

Her changing table is still a work in progress. I m hoping to find some more baskets and the perfect pad cover.

Thank you so much for reading! I hope you enjoyed!
