Baby's Safari Nursery with Decal Wall Decorations

I came up with the idea of decorating a baby's jungle safari nursery theme when I saw the Natures Purest Sleeping Safari range. It is SO soft and cuddly that I knew it would be perfect for my new bub.

The safari crib set that we chose for the project was quite gender neutral in color.

The fabric was very pleasing to me as it seemed more natural than some of the others. The tan, brown, antique white and green color scheme was more in keeping with nature and perfect since we are not sure of the sex of our baby.

I bought the items in the range that I needed and I wanted to get the wallpaper in the same design.

I was going to buy two sets to give it a more dimensional look, but only found one so I quickly had to come up with ideas for decorating the walls of the baby's nursery on my own.

I am generally quite a plain person, but love detail in my scrapbooking. And, well, this design was perfect. I decided to re-create the jungle theme nursery on the walls of the room so that it all tied together. I used a few different plain papers and one paper that had very neutral stripes on it to make my wall decorations.

I couldn't find paper to match the stripes in the linen range, so I cut fine strips to get just the right colours. Next I copied the wild animals as I wanted them to match exactly. I stitched everything with the sewing machine, which when I started I didn't think was going to be such big load of work. But it just kept growing to including a new animal that was not in the range but still matched. I used acetate to sew on for the stems of the trees and the jungle animal's tails so that all you see is stitching. Lastly, I had to draw on the wall to create the stitching which represents the ground.

I wouldn't say that this was a hard decorating project, but it was rather time consuming. As I finished the work last week, it was great to help keep my mind off being in my last couple of weeks of pregnancy.

I have limited the colours in the room to neutral tones taken from the bone carpet and curtains and the beige walls. Once my little one arrives I will still keep the colours of the safari nursery quite neutral. But I plan to add large, decorated letters that spell the baby's name name to one of the walls.

Baby Safari Animals

Baby elephants, giraffes, lions, tigers and other animals will play an important role in the layout of my child's nursery. I want him to grow up respecting and protecting endangered species as his father and I do.
