Winnie the Pooh is a classic character that has been a favourite of children for quite a long time. As a theme for a baby's nursery, the child can wake up and fall asleep seeing the smiling face of Winnie the Pooh and his friends every day. With so many items to purchase or create, it can be difficult to know where to start.
- Skill level:
Things you need
- Mod Podge
- Winnie the Pooh fabric
- Foam brush
Purchase a Winnie the Pooh nursery bedding set, with just Winnie the Pooh on it or with his friends on it as well. In some cases, you can also buy matching items, such as a dust ruffle, that will go with the bedding set.
Put Winnie the Pooh on the nursery walls. You can buy framed Winnie the Pooh pictures and put them on the wall or, if you want to avoid nail holes, you can buy wall stickers, which adhere without glue or nails and can easily be taken down. You could hire a muralist to paint the walls or buy a large wall mural that comes on a plastic sheet and attaches to the wall.
Add Winnie the Pooh curtains to the windows. You can purchase the curtains or you can make them yourself. If you want to create your own, you can either make the curtains out of Winnie the Pooh fabric or buy plain white curtains and add on Winnie the Pooh appliqués using fabric glue onto the wider, bottom part of the curtain.
Use stuffed animals as decorations. Buy few stuffed Winnie the Pooh bears, Piglets, Tiggers and Eeyores to put around the room. As the child gets older these become stuffed animals that she will cuddle with.
Buy a roll of Winnie the Pooh fabric to create decorative items yourself, instead of buying individual items. Purchase small, plain organizational containers, cut the fabric to fit and glue it on with a thin coat of Mod Podge, applied with a foam brush. Buy a plain laundry hamper and cover the outside of it with a thin coat of Mod Podge applied by a foam brush. Cut the fabric to fit and you have your own Winnie the Pooh laundry hamper. Sew the fabric onto the outside of a plain cushion and put it onto the rocker.
