This project is not new by any stretch of the imagination, but I thought I include it because it was an original craft- not an online tutorial.
Jake outgrew his "baby room" and I needed some kind of decoration for the walls. Not wanting to pay very much, I bought a yard of fabric at IKEA, and cut out the shapes I liked for the wall decorations. Using some solid fabric I already had, and some iron-on fusing, I put the shapes on the colored circels and streched them around a wodden hoop.
The wodden hoops were on sale- less than a dollar each! I didn't sew anything because I figured they are just going to be on the wall. Not really a candidate for wear and tear. I painted the top screw to match the wall color (yellow because we didn't know if we were having a boy or girl). I also stiched up a quick curtain to match.
They are not perfect, but a nice, cheap wall decoration that brightens up the room. Considering that once we have another child on the way this room will all be changed again, I am happy with how it turned out.
Notice the Ugly Dolls on his bed? His next room is going to be monster themed! I'm already excited for it. And if we are expecting a girl, I am DEFINITELY making this bird mobile from Homemade by Jill and modeling the whole room after it!
