DIY Baby! 12 Things To Make For Your Unborn

The web. It’s inspiring. Pinterest. It’s even more inspiring. And well, I am just in totally nesting mode and inspired by it all! If you didn’t get a chance to read my confession of love for DIY last week, you should. I love feeling the accomplishment of making something for my little, all by myself! And, it’s a reason to head to the craft store right Another one of my favorite places. Forget store bought! Get creative this summer and pick up the glue gun. My littles are always shocked and say “You made this Mom?” I know, I even surprise myself sometimes and the look of excitement on their face just makes it all worth it.

Not only is it fun to DIY, craft and make something your own but it for those of you nesting, it really helps. It really helps ease time if your overdue too!

After the jump, browse 12 DIY pretties to make for your baby and once your done, head to your local craft store to get started!
