The weekend’s almost here. I’m Robin with Front Door Friday. I’m expecting a baby shower door to wow guests. Is there anything more precious than a newborn baby? Put out the welcome mat and say “Hello, Baby”with some cute DIY decor that doubles as gifts.
Look what the stork brought. Recycle an old shipping box and print a stork delivery stamp on the side. Create a bundle of diapers using a burp cloth and a baby pin. It’s fun to use nursery rhymes and old wives tales in your decorating. Guests will love this nostalgic touch.
My inspiration for this baby shower door is my Nana. Whenever she would give a gift, whether it was for a baby shower or a bridal shower, the whole thing would be usable. For instance, she would take a clothes basket, fill it with all the items she wanted to give, and then she’d wrap it with a throw rug, so the whole thing was usable.
So thank you, Nana, for this wonderful gift. This wreath is covered with baby gifts. It’s easy to assemble with floral or craft wire and a wire wreath frame. Get smaller items like rolled diapers and socks, pacifiers, washcloths, and toys.
Here’s another Nana-inspired piece. Wrap it with a receiving blanket, go out into your yard, use what you have, take some branches, spray paint them if you want, take your rolled socks to look like a flower bud, maybe add a toy. Also, put a receiving blanket around the top to cover up the foam block. Add a few baby bottles, wrap with a ribbon.
Maybe add a pacifier. And voila. And now I’m going to show you how to make those cute little flower buds out of these sweet little baby socks. You want to start rolling at the toe. Keep rolling until you get to the very end, then take the open end of the sock and wrap it around the bottom, bringing it up near the top.
Take a rubber band, twist it around two or three times, and wrap this down to cover up the rubber band. How sweet. I love this front door. Now all I need is a baby to rock to sleep. But I’ll skip the midnight feedings. Been there, done that.
That’s it for this week’s Front Door Friday. I encourage you to step out and try some front door decorating this weekend. To learn more, check out the Country Door Blog. And I’ll see you next Friday. Happy decorating and God bless.
