Baby Room Borders – Creative Ideas for Fun Baby Nursery Borders
When decorating your child’s room, you can use a border around the walls. But don’t just buy and use wallpaper borders in the children’s room. Here are some ideas on how to make interesting borders for the baby’s room:
Put a border around the room with objects that match your nursery’s theme. For example, if you have the Winnie the Pooh nursery theme, you can create a border by making a pooh stencil, honey pots, bees, etc. around the room. For a baby room with a beach theme, you could make a border out of palm trees, beach balls, shells, or beach buckets.
If you have a baby room with a car theme, you can create a track border by painting a road around the room in a dark grey color. If you like, paint a finish line somewhere along the border. When the border is dry, use a hot glue gun to fix the race cars (matchboxes or cars with hot wheels are good) around the edge of the race track. For a baby’s room with a train theme, you could create a similar border by painting the train tracks and gluing toy trains to it.
An alternative to a growth chart is to create a border with a handprint. Get a non-toxic latex paint in one or more colors of your choice. Use a sponge or foam brush to lightly paint your baby’s hand with the paint, then press your hand against the wall where you want the border. It is best to mark the place where you want the edge in advance. Also, decide how far away you want the handprints to be. If you wish, you can make a series of hand and footprints each month as your baby grows. This would be a unique twist on a growth chart for your baby’s room.
Another idea for a border is to use wall stickers. These could consist of the alphabet, nursery rhymes, animals, or objects related to your room’s theme. Place them at equal intervals around the room to create a quick and easy wall border.
When it comes to decorating your child’s room, remember to let her creative juices flow freely – you may be surprised at what you can create!
