Decorating your baby's nursery is an exciting journey, and choosing what to hang above the crib can be a delightful and meaningful task. The space above the crib is a focal point that sets the tone for the entire room. Remember, safety is crucial when decorating a nursery. Ensure that whatever you choose to hang above the crib is securely fastened, out of reach, and follows recommended safety guidelines. With a little creativity and consideration, you can create a beautiful and nurturing environment for you precious bundle of joy. Here are some creative and thoughtful ideas to adorn that wall space and create a cozy haven for your little one. 


Monogramming the space above your baby's bed is a popular design concept. The monogram makes their room even more personalized and their own. You can find them on Etsy!


Frame Their Name

Similar to a monogram, framing their name above their bed is a great personalization to have for them to make their room their own. This framed name can be something they can carry into the "next bedroom", meaning toddler, pre-teen, and on. You can go so many different directions with the aesthetic and design, as well. Again, they can be found on Etsy

Framed Wallpaper or Fabric

For a little DIY project, and a great memento, get a small piece of their wallpaper or bedding fabric. This will hold so many memories and meanings for you and your child and they can have this in their heart and possibly home, forever. You can find any frame to do this with and make the cut-out as big as you want. 

Liz and Roo offers free fabric swatches that are 8" in size and can be framed, or you can order fabric by the yard and frame it. In addition, you can monogram the baby's initials on the fabric that matches your bedding and then frame it. 

Framed Letter

Another heartfelt option, you can write your baby a note while you're still in the hospital or have a grandparent do so. This is a frame that they will cherish forever and something they can always read (once they know how to) to remind them of their loved ones. Seeing a handwritten note in this day and age feels ten times more genuine. 

Here is a framed name in our Blush Watercolor Floral Bedding fabric that a customer made to match her bedding. Adorable.


Framed Prints

To find cute prints for your baby's nursery, especially what coordinates with your decor, you can look on Pinterest, Etsy, and we also recommend The Grateful Goose. That website has a huge variety of prints for boy, girl, and gender neutral nurseries.
