Are you expecting a new little Disney Addict in your household (or know someone who is)? What better way to introduce them to all that is amazing about Disney than to have a Disney themed nursery? There are TONS of great things you can do – and best of all, they can be done easily and without breaking the bank. So let’s roll up our sleeves and get started!
Paint: The walls are literally a blank canvas and there are so many ways to go with them! You can start with actual Disney branded paint (available at Home Depot) to get you in the Disney mindset, and choose colors based on your Nursery’s theme (don’t have one? Your favorite Disney movie, character, ride or park would all make perfect nursery themes for your little one!). Some ideas to liven up dull walls: Disney decals (available at home improvement and craft stores), character and other murals (if you’re so artistically inclined or know someone who is!), stripes/patterns, a favorite quote stenciled on the wall above the crib, or just some classic Mickey/Minnie heads painted on the walls would make the room come alive with character
Wall Decorations: if you’re like me (not too good with a paintbrush!) – then you can always stick with solid colored walls, and then add some framed/hanging elements to it to help define your Disney theme. Personally, our Disney themed nursery is just that – DISNEY – nothing specific, just overall Disney with a hint of Mickey – so I decided that I would hang a few of my favorite Disney quotes to help liven it up – the picture above shows the 3 I chose, all I did was chose a font and picture in a word processing program, and print them out and frame them in document frames I got from my local dollar store (I chose document frames because they were already the size of my printer paper, whereas I would have had to trim it for any other size frame like an 8×10), and voila – I have cheap but adorable wall hangings for the nursery!
Bedding/Linens: If you’re crafty with a sewing machine then you can make TONS of great stuff with fabrics found at local craft stores – blankets, curtains, crib skirts, etc – these can all be tailored to your Disney theme if you have the skill. I personally do NOT – but luckily my mother in law does –and she has agreed to make all kinds of great things for our soon-to-be-born son’s nursery (which I cannot WAIT to see at my shower next month!). She even gave me a fabric swatch – this pattern is perfect for our little boy’s room! And don’t worry if you aren’t crafty – places like Wal-Mart and K-Mart sell similar items online (blankets/quilts, sheet/bedding sets etc)
Toys and Cuddly Things: What nursery would be complete without some TOYS? Obviously the baby won’t get much use out of them right away, but man are they cute, and they do add to the décor, don’t you think? The Disney Store, as well as various other retailers (Wal-Mart, Target, and even grocery stores!) often carry assorted Disney plush and other toys for all ages, and they are usually affordable and well built (so you don’t have to worry too much when your little guy or gal starts chewing on Mickey’s ear!). I found these HUGE stuffed Mickey and Minnie’s at my local grocery store – but I know similar ones are available online via the Disney Store
