Baby Owl Tree Nursery
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. Go here to see more.
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
