I’ve been brainstorming what kind of decoration I want to put over the crib for a while. I kept coming back to the 3D paper art that people have been doing lately. Problem was everything I found was girlie…and mostly butterflies. This is cute, but since we don’t know if Baby is a boy or a girl, butterflies didn’t seem like the right approach.
Sunday morning, when I was debating if I should roll out of bed or snooze for a bit longer, the idea hit me…Stars!
I had seen several of these 3D stars around Christmas. And when I went to Pinterest for a quick tutorial, I found this from Little Birdie Secrets.
I’m so happy that I decided to go back to Hobby Lobby and get that paper book for the Alphabet Wall, because I just used more sheets from the same book to create the stars.
The trickiest part was figuring out how to attach them to the wall. I ended up using big loops of tape on the backsides. Super simple.
The project didn’t take long at all. The most time consuming part was scoring the stars so that they folded easily.
I even have a few extra stars that I might hang randomly in the room to pull it together.
