Nursery Decor Idea: DIY String Art

Find out how to create an inspiring wall piece for baby's room

Photography by Dina,

Are you looking for the perfect focal point for baby’s room, but not wanting to spend a ton of money? Not to worry—it’s easy to create a gorgeous piece yourself for under $60!

We love this inspiring wall decor by Dina over at Honey & Fitz. Her take on string art is as simple as can be—she provides a template for the lettering, and cork rolls make it easy to insert the nails.

What you’ll need:

  • Cork rolls
  • Embroidery floss
  • Linoleum nails
  • Hot glue gun
  • Velcro hanging strips
  • White paint (optional)
  • Mini Styrofoam roller (optional)
  • White duck tape (optional)

For step-by-step instructions, visit the Honey & Fitz site. The bright colours and whimsical lettering in the finished design make it the perfect centrepiece for baby’s nursery. It’s also a great DIY gift for a baby shower! If you’re looking for a simpler take on string art, check out this smaller version of the tutorial that Dina did for Hellobee, where she stringed a single letter on a cork tile. The mini version is still very cute and can be displayed on a shelf in your little one’s room.
