When we lived in Seattle, one of our favorite family outings was feeding the giraffes at the Woodland Park Zoo. It began for Princess a serious love of all things giraffe. Books, toys, clothing, stuffed animals--if it is related to giraffes in any way, she is all over it.
So when I came across an adorable giraffe alphabet print on an Etsy shop called Nursery Love, I knew it would be the perfect accent piece for her room (and a great Christmas gift!) Knowing I already had a matted frame that I had found on clearance a few months ago stashed away in the closet, I ordered the 4x6 print and checked that one off my list. Until, of course, the print arrived in the mail and I pulled out the frame, only to discover the frame was matted to fit a 5x7 print. Oops.
I had two choices. I could a.) buy a new frame or b.) get creative.
Guess which one I chose? (hint: buying a new frame wouldn't be a very interesting blog post.)
I gathered up a few craft supplies I had scattered around the house & got to work.
I pretty much just made it up as I went along and didn't really worry about making any of it too perfect--I wanted it to be a little "messy." If I were to do it again, I probably would've skipped the extra embellishments, but since Princess prefers everything a little "over the top," it is probably perfect for her.
In addition to absolutely adorable prints, Nursery Love has the sweetest selection of super cute vintage & handmade original toys, children's art, books, & more. As part of 30 days of Holiday Cheer, one lucky reader will win the exact 4x6" giraffe print featured above.
