Simplicity is sometimes the most striking when it comes to art in the nursery. Martha Stewart has four great art projects for busy parents or parents-to-be to help get you started.
We love using clothespins to decorate. This simple wooden device has such a classic elegance about it. Along with a little cotton twill tape, you can use them in the nursery to create a keepsake clothesline to hang just about anything- cards, drawings, photos, or even- little clothes.
Another simple idea: spell out your child's name with found items- scrap paper, objects, stencils, and use encase them in box frames. The possibilities are endless and choosing the letters could even make a fun project for an older child.
We love framing beautiful paper and fabric so we're big fans of this fabric collage. Just wrap canvases of different shapes and sizes in fabrics of different colors, patterns and textures, and staple them on. This is also the kind of art that still works in an older child's room. It's such a pretty idea, we love it for any room in the house.
