DIY Baby Shower Bunting
My dear friend is having a baby in the fall, and I’m excited to show you the DIYs I have in store for her baby shower in the coming weeks. First up, a sweet baby shower bunting that even those with limited artistic skills can create. As you may have noticed, I love watercolors, not only because they are aesthetically beautiful but they are very forgiving for a novice painter. I highly recommend DIYers invest in a set of watercolors, and it need not be an expensive investment. I simply purchased a kids artist set with them awhile ago, and they work great.
For the bunting, start by drawing a few baby-related shapes on watercolor, hard stock paper. Most baby-related shapes are pretty basic so I did not use stencils. I then used my first batch of cut-outs to stencil a second set. Once you have your cut-outs, you can use your watercolor paints to make them colorful and pretty. As my friend is not planning to find out the gender, I used rainbow stripes for a lot of the cut-outs to make the bunting gender neutral. Lastly, I used tape to tape them to some twine. And you’re finished—a sweet, thoughtful DIY baby shower party decoration. New mothers could also consider hanging this in the nursery so the baby can enjoy it once it arrives!
