40 DIY Baby Nursery Ideas


Oh baby! Are you expecting a little one soon? Or maybe a family member or friend is. What an exciting time! And if you’re a DIY-er, you can truly make the perfect baby items for the nursery.

One of the best things about DIY-ing baby nursery things is you can completely customize them to get that perfect look and style you’ve always dreamed of. So if you want a woodland theme nursery, a farm theme, a zoo theme or simply to use specific colors – its all 100% within your control. You also will see quite a few projects here feature adding the baby’s name to personalize the gift, or even birth announcement information to really make it special and unique.

If you’re DIY-ing a baby nursery gift, we recommend you ask the new parents exactly what they are hoping for their nursery. Because lots of Moms and Dads have already come up with ideas, but would be so happy if you gave them a bit of help with it!

We’ve got 40 terrific baby nursery projects here for you. Whether you are new to DIY or more experienced, there is a project here that you can do.
