For a number of years I have pinned and saved pictures of pillow DIY’s- from mountains to houses, numbers, letters- you name it. There’s something about an over sized piece of fruit or number that yells “I am fun!! Your baby will love me!” There are so many companies out there that make absolutely adorable decorative pillows for kids- I’ve linked some of my favourite below. I’ve also found a few tutorials that will help you make your own! This DIY is definitely being added to my “to do” list for Ava’s room and playroom!

Have you seen those hanging timber canvas frames going around? They have timber at the top and bottom, but nothing around the edges? I’ve been wanting one for a while now for Ava’s room, but they are so expensive! I couldn’t believe that people were charging $30+ for a few pieces of timber and some string! I decided to make one for myself and surprisingly it actually turned out pretty good!
Things you’ll need
– 4 lengths of timber- a few things here- depending on what size the poster is you’ll need 4 lengths of timber cut to the same size. I “framed” an A3 picture so the length of my timber was 4 x 30cm. Also, my local timber store (Bunnings if you’re here in Australia) will cut a long piece of timber for you. I found a piece that was 1.2m.. so 4 perfect cuts of 30cm
– Two screw eyes
– Double sided tape (I used mounting tape)
First you’ll need to screw the screw eyes into the sides of one piece of timber. Let me warn you- it’ll feel like they are not going in! Keep persevering.. they just take a while to start sticking.
Next, lay your pieces of timber out and periodically place double sided tape along each piece.
Place your canvas or poster onto one side of each piece of timber and then press the corresponding piece of timber onto it to stick the canvas/image. A side note here- because I used double sided tape, when I want to replace the image it will be ruined as it’ll probably tear when I remove the tape. Next time I make one of these I’m going to hot glue gun magnets onto each side of the timber, thus allowing me to easily remove the canvas or image.
