    Decorating a nursery, Part 3: Accessories and finishing touches

    Published on 29 January 2013, Tuesday, 3:08 AM

    So you've picked out your nursery theme, finished up your DIY painting project, and selected the appropriate furniture pieces for your baby's room - now it's time to add the finishing touches!

    Here are two final projects you can embark on to complete the look of your child's nursery.

    Nursery wall art

    This is your chance to show some creative flair, painting and designing your own homemade artwork or purchasing a print from a store.

    If you've chosen an animal theme for the nursery, one wall art idea you may want to try is cutting out paper shapes of animals and placing them in a white picture frame.

    For example - Cut out a shape of an elephant to fill the centre of the frame, snipping out smaller elephant shapes to surround the middle image. You can choose one animal for each frame - lions, monkeys, zebras, etc.

    Paper flag bunting

    This is a super-easy decorating touch to add to a nursery - all you need is some decorated card paper, ribbon, scissors and a glue gun.

    Choose three to five different pieces of decorated card paper (clouds, boats, animals, butterflies) and cut into a triangular flag shape.

    Cut a ribbon into the desired length for your bunting and glue the flags to it. Leave to dry for an hour or two and then hang in your nursery.
