Princess Room Decor

I saw the cutest thing for a little girls room. 
I would love to properly tell you where I saw this, so please, if this was your idea, let me know so I can share your link and blog. I loved your idea so much, I just had to make one for my daughters birthday. I searched for the blog I saw it on with no luck. So if you see this let me know or if any of you wonderful bloggers recognize this, then please share the details. LOL

Update: Found the Blog(s). Two of them. Yeah! Thank you so much Shannon for sharing the links with me. I am so glad I can now tell everyone where I found this idea. Yeah.

Shannon @ One Crafty Mommy is where I saw this beautiful project. Make sure you check out hers too!
And she got her inspiration from Tiffany @ Making the World Cuter. So go see the original. It is a must. She has a BOYS one and a Family Rules One. Cool!

So for mine, I added a few more lines because my board was too big and I wanted a few personal touches.

What you will need....

  • Wood - mine is 12 x 24
  • Scrap book paper in various colors (strips)
  • Mod Podge
  • Paint Pen (I used Black)
  • E-6000
  • Picture Hanger

First I cut scrapbook paper into strips. (12" x 2") Tore the edges to give it a different look. Then glued them with mod podge. 

Then after letting the glue dry completely. (at least 2 hrs.) I started adding my text and embellishments. I was going to use different colors but was happy with the colors of the scrap book paper. I wanted it to pop, so using just the black paint pens made it look just how I wanted. 

I used E-6000 to glue on a Picture Hanger (on the back) and it was ready to hang.

We love how it turned out!

This would also make a wonderful gift for any lil girl. I am making one for lil boys too. I will have to post that soon too!

Don't you just love her name. LOL I love her take on this project. So, cute!


  1. That is so precious. And she is adorable.

  2. Cute! I might just have to do this some day... :)

  3. This is such a great idea! I made a family rules canvas that is kind of like this, but this is the first "Princess" picture I have seen. I can't wait to see the one you make for Little Boys. :)

  4. That is a very cute sign and your daughter is beautiful. What a smile! :) ~Lanie

  5. Love it! My 4 y.o is just getting into Princess stuff and this is a great idea. Thanks for the follow on Twitter!

  6. Very sweet! Your daughter must be flattered :)

  7. Wow, you did a fantastic job. I love the colors you chose. A step away in the right direction from the pinks and purples!

  8. That's really cute. I'll have to make it this weekend!

  9. This looks similar to the family rules canvas from The Pleated Poppy: http://lindseycheney.blogspot.com/2009/09/family-rules-canvas.html

    But I don't know if that's where you found it. Looks really cute though!

  10. That is so cool! I love it!

  11. Brilliant. Thanks for sharing!

  12. Thanks everyone. It was so fun to make. Quick and easy too! I am already writing down words for the boys. But it's tricky. Really only for Toddlers and Babies. I don't think my 10 year old would appreciate it as much. LOL

    But if you have any fun suggestions for sayings, I would love it.

    Karisa, Thanks for the link for the Family Rules. I remember seeing that one, but it wasn't the exact one. Darn, thought someone might have found it. I will have to keep looking. Thanks again.

    And thanks again to all for the sweet comments.

  13. Hello! I did this board awhile ago:http://1craftymommy.blogspot.com/2010/01/princess-project-and-freebie.html

    and I got the idea from this blog:

    That's the only place I have seen it so I hope that is where you find it!

  14. Such a cute & creative idea! I'm definitely making this my next project for my 3yo princess!
