 We will be welcoming a sweet little boy in April of this year, and I’ve been sharing our nursery as we get it ready for this precious baby.  If you are interested in seeing all that we’ve done, take at look at these links below:

Mobile

This was by far the most extensive project in our nursery, but it’s also my favorite.  I love how it turned out!

This mobile has a few of the creatures from Narnia.  I also added a tree, leaves, and pinecones.  We tied each felt masterpiece with fishing wire, and used twine to anchor the branch to the ceiling.  It’s a fairly light mobile, but the anchor gives us the reassurance that all is secure.  This mobile is hanging above our glider chair in the nursery.  We decided to put it there instead of over the crib because it would have blocked the view from our video cam (yes, we spy on our children).

Pinecones

This was a diy project I found on Pinterest.  It’s from an awesome blog called Salt Tree.

To make this pine cone, I used a plastic Easter egg and wrapped felt around using hot glue to secure it.

Leaves

My inspiration for these leaves can be found here.  I used orange, mustard, light green, yellow, red, and dark green felt with contrasting thread for the veins.

Unicorn

This is Jewel the fearsome Unicorn from The Last Battle.  He is cream with a blue horn and a gold chain necklace around his neck. I used yarn for his tail and beard, and gold sequins for his necklace.

Beaver

Beavers were found in the first book of the Chronicles of Narnia.  Mr. and Mrs. Beaver brought the Pevensie Children to see Aslan.

Fox

 This fox was featured in the first book of the Chronicles of Narnia.  He saved the beavers and the Pevensie children from being captured by the White Witch.  I found some pictures of foxes online, drew an outline and cut each piece of felt.

Tree

This tree is supposed to signify the tree from The Magician’s Nephew.  I found a cute one here and created my version from that.

Lion

I think we all know who this is, right?  This guy was my creation.  I drew him on paper, cut, and sewed him together.

Reepicheep

What’s a Narnia nursery without the wonderful character of Reepicheep?  He’s a resilient and brave mouse that is featured in Prince Caspian and The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.  He is completely my creation.  He’s got a red feather, and a gold earring.  Reepicheep also has a belt that he uses to holster his sword (which I am still looking for).

Badger

This badger helped nurse Prince Caspian back to health in the second book.  I found this badger on an Etsy shop and made him based on how he looked from the website.

Dragon

wpid-2015-02-18-05.06.23-1_wm.jpg.jpeg

This dragon is from the 3rd book in the Narnia Series where Eustace turns into a dragon.  I found the idea for this creature from Pinterest here.

Mr. Tumnus

wpid-2015-02-18-05.08.17-1_wm.jpg.jpeg

Mr. Tumnus is another creation of mine.  I wasn’t sure if I could do it, but he looks pretty awesome.

Owl

wpid-2015-02-18-05.09.25-1_wm.jpg.jpeg

The Owl is from the fourth book called The Silver Chair.  The owls helped Eustace and Jill rescue Prince Rilian.  My inspiration for this owl can be found here.

I hope you’ve enjoyed a peak into our nursery.
