Book-inspired Nursery Art

DIY wall decor is such a fun way to introduce a personal element to your baby's space. We spotted this sweet art project recently and love the graphic birds, the paper doll-esque printed dress, and the google eyes. Best of all, it was inspired by a wonderful children's book.

We haven't seen a copy of The Ice-Cream Cone Coot and Other Rare Birds by Arnold Lobel since the early 80s! Vanessa of Silly Eagle Books has devoted her whole website to children's literature, and this artwork is only one of many book-inspired creations she has made. Check out the full tutorial here and her many other crafts here.
