Another nursery project checked off the list! I am seriously loving all the pink and flowery goodness that I get to play around with! Anybody else never think they’d be so girly in their life until they had a daughter??
My original plan for this project idea was to make a mobile for over the crib, but then I decided I wanted a bird cage or gallery wall above the crib, so I went with a banner for the window instead!
Remember this window? It is on its third life now! Originally part of the guest bedroom, which turned into Christian’s woodland nursery and now into a shabby chic girl nursery for Madison 🙂 I love how versatile it has been!
To make the banner, I picked out 6 different fabrics in whites, light pinks and light grays. I got 1/2 yard of each and had enough left over to make another for my niece 🙂
I laid the fabric out and made a little snip approximately every two finger widths apart. Then I just ripped the fabric at each snip until I had a massive amount of fabric strips at my super fancy work station 🙂
Apparently, that’s where I stopped taking pictures. Whoops! I tied each fabric strip in a slip knot around a piece of ribbon that I measured to fit the window it would be draped on. I didn’t follow any pattern of using each different fabric, just whatever I thought should come next! I didn’t want it to look too uniform. I filled up the ribbon and then attached it to my window using tacks on the back side of the window.
I moved the two hooks and twine so the window would hang horizontally with the banner attached when I put it on the wall.
I think it’s such a sweet little addition to the nursery! Slowly but surely it’s transforming from a woodland theme to a shabby chic theme and I’m loving it!
My favorite projects can be completed in one evening and this was one of them! I just put on some Netflix and was done in about an hour!
