{WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE Themed Nursery Art and Decor}

One of my very greatest friends in all the world was finally blessed with her little guy last year after a long battle with infertility. She asked me to (hired me) do her nursery art/decor for her. She knew what theme she wanted and showed me some ideas and let me take it from there. That's my absolute favorite way to work. You tell me what style you like and any ideas you already know you love and want and then I use my skills an ideas to make it all happen! 

I'll admit, I had never ever made arrows before and when I told her I would do it I had no idea how I would but that I was going to figure it out. And I did. I love problem solving and coming up with my own ways to make things work. 

They finally got in their new home and she got to put everything up in his nursery. The following two pics are ones she sent me once everything was hung.

The arrows below were made using wooden dowels from Hobby Lobby, arrowheads from off Amazon, hand-painted and wrapped with thin rope and feathers attached to the ends.

The letters below are made with wooden letters purchased from Hobby Lobby, fabric from JoAnn's, mod-lodged on in scraps.

Wow! This is incredible. Wish I would've realized you did this before I had Kaden.
