Hello all! I’ve been feeling a bit nostalgic lately. I can’t believe how quickly my littles are growing! My son is now four, and this newborn onsie he wore is so fitting of his personality today 🙂 He is in LOVE with cars! So I thought I would try preserving this special onsie in a way that not only keeps that sweet baby memory, but updates his big boy room as well.
Here is what you’ll need:
1. Baby outfit with cute print. A medium size print works best. Cotton is also the easiest fabric to work with, but other fabrics work as well.
2. DIY modge podge. I never use store bought, it is way to pricy! Check out this great tutorial! So easy and crazy cheap! http://www.themakeyourownzone.com/2013/02/make-your-own-mod-podge-for-decoupage-crafts.html
5. Paint brush
This project is easy as 1 2 3 ! First cut out the material, a piece large enough to cover your canvas, then apply the Modge Podge on the canvas and over the top. Let dry, and cover again. Dry overnight, and there you have it! An adorable piece of decor with a very special story.
I know the thought of cutting up a piece of baby history can be hard, but keeping those memories boxed away is not the answer, safe a few, give some to others, and make special memories with the rest. This would make a great gift for grandparents as well!
Happy DIY adventures!
