Nursery Name Art


Before Wyatt was born, I saw this post on Lyndsey's blog about an idea for nursery decor. Lyndsey saw something similar in an Etsy shop called Mosie Posies and decided to try to make her own. I loved the idea, and so I decided that after our baby was here and we knew what his name was, I would do the same thing!

Here is the original piece:



And here is the way mine turned out. We bought some fancy paper from Hobby Lobby, and Derek printed it up with a laser printer at his work, so it would look as professional as possible. We printed it on an 8 x 11" piece of paper, bought a mat, and framed it in an 11 x 14" frame.



You'll have to use your imagination for the last name and location spaces, but I really like it! I think it'll look great in Wyatt's nursery.

After thinking about the name art thing more, I felt inspired, so I also came up with this idea to emphasize the meaning of Wyatt's name, which is "Little Warrior". I pray that he will be a mighty warrior for the Lord's kingdom, so I made this piece so that when Wyatt is older, I can tell him what his name means and give him something to aspire to.

I also love the way this one turned out! Just like a pictured it in my head. We did the same thing for this one and bought fancy paper and a mat, and we printed this one bigger on an 11 X 14" piece of paper, and framed it in a 16 x 20" frame.



A close-up on the words:



The full nursery reveal will be coming soon! As soon as I get a spare minute to hang these and take some pictures . . .

Those are so cool! That's such a great idea, and I'm sure that second one with his name's meaning will be very meaningful to him when he grows up. Awesome!
