Baby nursery ideas you can DIY with Cricut

13 June 2022

Decorating the nursery is a special moment for parents to be. It’s fun to create a beautiful and personalised room, but it can be costly too. DIY your own nursery decor with your Cricut machine to cut the cost and make something truly unique for your little one.

We see on a daily basis how makers use their Cricut to decorate their homes and the nursery is no exception.

It’s the details that make an impact. Add in some cute details to create a room that brings a smile to your face (and hopefully your newborn’s too!).

We’ve rounded up some ideas from Cricut Design Space projects area that you can make now.

Baby Mobile

Parents know the feeling of hoping your baby sleeps soundly at night. Perhaps a moon and stars mobile will do the trick! Create out of cardstock or felt dream-like clouds, moon, and star shapes that are then attached to string to create a 3D effect.

This Moon Constellation is available as a ready-to-make project on Design Space.

Lion Night Light

Could this lion-themed light be any cuter? It’s also really easy to create by using vinyl to decorate your light. If lions aren’t your thing you could try many of the designs available in Design Space.

Find this Lion Night Light ready-to-make project in Design Space.

Star Hooks

Decorate your hooks with vinyl decals! Whatever the shape there is something for everyone in Design Space to create unique decor perfect for the style and themes of your room.

See this Wooden Star Hooks ready-to-make project in Design Space.

Wall Decals

Wall decals are a great way to personalise a room. There are thousands of cute designs in Design Space that would be perfect as wall stickers using removable vinyl. From cheeky tigers to pretty rainbows, create the best room for your little one.

Go large with your designs with Smart Vinyl™. It allows you to cut without a mat meaning you no longer need to stick to the parameters of a cutting mat! Find out more about that here.

Smart Materials are compatible with the Cricut Explore™ 3 and the Cricut Maker™ 3. For smaller-width Smart Materials, these are suitable for the Cricut Joy™.

Baby Clothes Hanger

We know baby can have many changes of clothing in a day, never mind the week! Creating your own hangers is a cost-effective way to keep your baby clothes organised plus they look adorable too!

We used chipboard and cut with the knife blade which is compatible with the Cricut Maker™ and Cricut Maker™ 3. We then painted the chipboard and used vinyl for the cute elephant detailing.

The Elephant Baby Clothes Hanger project is available as a ready-to-make project in Design Space.

Personalised Stuffies

Create your own soft toys as a meaningful and personal touch to your nursery room. We have a number of adorable toy projects available in Design Space. It’s equally great that with the rotary blade and the Cricut Maker™ or Cricut Maker™ 3, you can cut fabrics seamlessly.

Personalised Mini Lion Stuffie is available as a project on Design Space here.

We previously shared Raph from The Great British Sewing Bee’s adorable Giraffe project which is also available to make here.

We hope you enjoy making your own personalised decor for the nursery!
