What size baby nursery will you be working with? If you have a large space, a baby grand in the corner with a well-padded bench seat would be a great prop in a musical note nursery theme. If you are working with a bedroom of average size in your home, keep the decor on a much smaller scale. Smaller pictures, artwork and accessories will be wonderful for making the baby's musical note nursery theme seem airy and spacious.

Will you want to create a gender-neutral unisex nursery theme or a musical note nursery theme specifically for a baby boy or a baby girl?

For a baby boy, a musical note nursery theme filled with monochromatic contrasts of black and white like the keys of a piano will be perfect. Bold, hip, black lacquered finish nursery furniture would be cool decor for the future jazz musician. On the walls try pictures of a musical note or band instruments on a cream or crisp white ground. Bright colors would be fine with all the black and white baby nursery furniture and accessories.

For a baby girl, you can use some musical note fabrics in a pastel print. Precious Moments has a sweet slipper and musical notes design that you could use for inspiration for a baby girl's room. Shades of pink or turquoise on the nursery walls would look really stunning with ebony black musical notes scattered about.

Here are some ideas and Do it Yourself crafts for your musical note baby nursery theme that you and your future star baby will love!


  • Group several shadow boxes filled with brass horns or any small instrument on a contrasting background within the shadow box. Toy instruments in primary children's colors will keep things lighthearted in your baby's nursery theme!

  • Create a nursery wall grouping with pictures or cutouts of treble clefs and musical notes either by using stencils and basic stenciling techniques or by using musical motif wall stickers. If your family is musical, copy some pictures of family members playing their particular instrument on photocopy paper. Trace the outline of a large musical note strategically placed on each printed image and clip out your art to use in a large grouping of family photo musical note wall art!

  • Buy used sheet music from a discount or resale store to wallpaper one wall or create a collage on your bedroom wall. You can go for color or a vintage aged look. It won't matter if you can read music or not, the idea is simply to get the musical symbols for effect.

  • Vintage or recent CD or album covers can be used for wall art or posters if you have some favorite colorful items already on hand.


  • Make padded fabric musical notes to firmly attach to a baby's mobile. This is a place you can completely choose the color or pattern you want for your nursery theme as you will make it yourself!

  • Make a baby nursery table that looks like a drum!
  • Make a lamp from a well-worn brass trumpet, clarinet or saxophone. It won't matter that the pads don't work or if it has a few dents. Clean it up and wire it for lighting. Buy a cheap craft lampshade and cover it with a print that will work in your nursery theme!
  • Using printable photo paper, copy some images of either musical instruments, sheet music scores or musical notes on the photo copy paper. Make some musical note custom decorative switch plates to match your customized lampshade that you covered. Here are the instructions for making your own personalized custom switch plates.
  • A colorful music box or vintage jewelry boxes in shapes of pianos or other musical instruments
  • Nursery rug in a musical note shape or a rug that looks like piano keys, guitar, or the instrument of your preference.


  • Buy old 45s or 33lp vinyl music albums (or used cd s for a more modern nursery theme) from a flea market, garage or yard sale or thrift store. If you read the classified ads, sometimes people will give away boxes of records for free if you will just haul them away! Using a hot awl or nail to melt a hole in the tops and bottoms of each one. String them together using clear sewing thread or even fishing line. Get a really cool hip curtain rod and hang them in an overlapping frequency for privacy. This would work for either a teen or a 50s rock and roll nursery theme for your little angel's bedroom.
