Dollar Store Nursery Decor

I love decorating.

I love decorating for cheap even better.

When I was putting Monkey’s nursery together, I had an idea.

And it worked.

The best part?  It was cheap and easy.

Okay.  Monkey and Firecracker share(d) a room.  I actually put their names into the frames, but changed their names up to get the “DREAM” on the wall for this post.  ‘Cuz, you know…their names aren’t really Monkey and Firecracker.

So, start off with some dollar store frames.  These are 5x7.

Cut some 5x7 pieces of cardstock, and print your desired letters off of the computer.  Be sure to use cardstock for that, too.  Make the letters huge,  make them so they’re just an outline, then make it so it’s a mirror image.  It will print off backwards.  This is a good thing.  That way, when you’re cutting them out, if you accidentally leave any of the outline, it’s on the back; not the front.

Glue the letters to the cardstock.  I used spray adhesive.  I {heart} spray adhesive.

Use a staple gun and staple ribbon to the back of the frame.

Put your cardstock and letters into the frame.

Mount them onto the wall, and you’re finished.

See how cute?

Knowing how cheap it was makes it even cuter, if you ask me!  :)

P.S.  The vinyl lettering says, “Twinkle, twinkle little star.  Do you know how loved you are?”


…but it’s true.  My kids are very loved!  :)

  1. This is a great project - I think the $ store is an often overlooked source of supplies. The "twinkle star" phrase is lovely too.
