After making several changes to Elias' nursery I decided that my bright "+" and "=" didn't really fit in. The rest of the colours were much lighter or more muted (like his mobile, pinwheels and hoop art). So I decided to do the small canvases over again.
First I thought Mod Podging some white tissue paper might help to make the colours a little bit less bright....
...but then I thought it looked more like I smeared hand cream all over it... Eww...
So in came some burlap and polka dot fabric (I love polka dots!)
I cut the polka dot fabric into approx. 2cm wide strips..
Then I attached burlap to the canvases with a hot glue gun.
And cut slits into the burlap to weave the polka dot fabric through and Voila!
So simple, but much sweeter!
*Sorry for all the dark pictures- with winter here I only have so many hours of sunlight and those are generally spent with my little man!
Eventually I will show you the nursery all put together because there are some cute details I've been hiding in the background but I still have a few more things to do before a whole room peek!
I really love the change, now I may need to do something about those black letters...
What do you think? Did you like it better before? Are you a huge burlap fan like me?
