One of my most favorite things about having a baby is picking out the nursery decor, aside from all those other mushy reasons of course. The only problem is, it’s really hard investing too much money into decorating a room that will likely have to change after only a couple years… if that. (This post contains affiliate links, that means if you buy something through one of the links I may make a bit of a commission, but it doesn’t change the price to you… thank you!)
Despite my lack of A) time, B) motivation, and C) creativity before my second was born, I managed to whip these fabric wall circles out in no time flat and on the super cheap. Not only were they really easy, but you can’t buy this kind of customization in a store if you’re on a budget.
My mother-in-law makes these amazing baby quilts with all the matching accouterments. She happened to have a bunch of the fabric left over so I was able to just use that. But if you don’t have any fabric lying around, you don’t need that much so you can pick some up for $10-$15, if that. Etsy often has really fun and unique patterns, too, if you’re looking for something a little different.
First, you’ll need the following supplies:
-Four different sizes of cake circles. Jo-Ann has packs for $3-$4 dollars each. You’ll only need 3 of each size.
Using the spray adhesive, glue all the circles together.
It will look something like this:
Almost done (no really)!
Now lay your glued together circle down on the fabric and cut a circle leaving about 2″ extra fabric on the outside.
Spray the fabric to the circle, then spray the back side of the cardboard, as well as the fabric, and fold it over. Do this all the way around the circle. Try to pull fairly taut so there are no wrinkles on the front or sides.
Now you have one done, repeat with the other sizes and different fabrics
Get them ready to hang on the wall:
Use the Command Picture Hanging Strips to hang the circles.
Follow the instructions on the package.
Notice how the patterns match the quilt as well as the valance and table runner?
Change it up:
If you wanted a little more variety and interest, you could change the thickness of each circle as well by changing the number of cake circles you glue together to begin with.
Don’t forget to Pin it!
And of course, don’t forget to save it for future reference… and feel free to let me know if you have any questions.
