Tree Mural with Baby Owls Perched in the branches above the Baby's Crib

We had so much fun decorating our baby owl tree nursery theme. I can truly say that we had a HOOT! We kicked off the project by painting the wall over the crib. You can see the design that we chose in the pictures. Keep reading to see exactly how we created the design.



First we sketched the outline of the trunk of the tree on the wall. (You can adjust the colors to match your
owl baby bedding set
.



A picture of the tree's trunk was sketched on transparency paper and then projected onto the wall as a guide.

I used a small paint brush to draw an outline of the trunk and then came back over it with a narrow roller to fill in the large branches and trunk.

A smaller paintbrush was used to paint the details of the smaller tendrils. It took 2 coats of paint to get the coverage that I wanted.




Then I chose an array of different patterned scrapbook papers and cut out various sized leaves which were then run through Xyron adhesive machines so that the backs of the leaves were sticky.

The next step that we took in decorating the
baby owl tree nursery
was to peel the shapes off of the adhesive paper.



One after the other, we started to stick them on the limbs of our painted tree. As an afterthought, a baby owl was added to look over the crib.



BABY OWL and LEAF PATTERN

I know that there are those of you that will want to decorate your baby's nursery with baby owls after seeing this cute baby owl in the tree nursery theme. I wanted to let you know that you may be able to recreate the pattern pieces to the baby owls and the leaves in the tree mural by enlarging the pictures and tracing them.

I know that Unique Baby Gear Ideas ' visitors will want to re-create Monica's mural design and I don't think that she would mind answering questions if you run into any problems.

Do you know what the name of that color is that you used as your base paint for all of the walls?
Thanks!

Great idea for using quilt fabric scraps!
by: Anonymous

I have lots of leftover quilting fabric that I can use to make some baby owls! I'm going to use the starch method to apply them to the walls and I can't wait to get started!

I loved this idea so much but I wanted to use brighter colors in the room. So I used a rust colored wall paint with a chocolate tree and bright jewel toned primary colors for the leaves and the owls.

I made all of my own baby bedding to match. The nursery turned out amazing!

Thanks for the great nursery decorating ideas.

This is a great nursery theme! My daughter loves it so much that she's doing her nursery the same way. I love the background colour - a dusky evening shade that's cozy and inviting. The owls are just too cute.
Thanks for sharing!

So cute and you gave me great ideas to add. I think I might change the tree to a darker coler then add a white picket fence for dimension. Thank you so much..

The 3rd place nursery pictures contest winner has claimed her prize for her winning baby owl tree nursery pictures that created quite a stir with our visitors.

Monica did a superb job of giving a retro nursery theme a modern look using fresh new colors and a creative use of fabrics. The splash of lavender in the background was an unexpected delight in this room that nature lovers could not help but adore.

Monica is a stay at home mom to her now 9 month old baby girl, Harper. She runs the website monicaonthego.com in her spare time and likes to run with her dogs and cook. She is thrilled to be the 3rd place nursery pictures contest winner as she is really pleased with how the nursery turned out and loves playing with Harper in her beautiful Baby Owl Tree Nursery.

From the Webmaster:


All of the prizes have been awarded and I must say that I'm already feeling nostalgic about the 2009 Unique Baby Nursery Decorating Ideas, Nursery Themes and Gearpictures contest. Last year's contest was a success beyond my wildest dreams and was so much fun. But if the entries that have already been receieved for 2010's competition are any indication our current contest is going to be bigger and better than ever before so grab your camera and start snapping photos of your baby's room for a chance to win some very nice prizes!

Funky and Retro

I love this room! Your fabric selection for the baby owls in the wallpaper border and wall decorations give the room a funky and retro look that has got me thinking about re-doing my toddler's bedroom. Wish I had seen it when I was decorating her nursery. Good luck!

Devine Owl Baby Room
by: Anonymous

What a devine owl baby room this is! I landed on your page helping out a girl in my office
who is expecting a baby this winter. She had asked me to help her pick out something modernin a gender neutral nursery design.

She lives in an apartment so she is going to have to leave the walls painted white so she was looking for a theme with lots of color. She is an amateur photographer and has lots of pictures of birds so your owl nursery theme might be just the thing!

Xyron adhesive machines
by: Mike S.

What was the model number or name of the Xyron adhesive machine that you used to make the paper adhesive? I'd love to decorate our baby's nursery similar to yours.
