As we designed the board & batten and selected the Nordic wallpaper for the nursery, the room began to take shape, and I knew I wanted to incorporate some black and white accents in the room to add contrast and help the look keep its edge. Originally, I’d made this banner with the intent of hanging it in a grouping above the crib, but as we furnished the room, I decided to keep things simple over there, and ended up moving the banner over to the closet door.
This little banner is a 30 minute project (maybe less–if you’re not filming a movie about it!), made fantastically simple by the invention of precut sticky-back felt letters, and can be customized to say whatever you’re drawn to. I decided on the French phrase “mon cœur” which translates to “my heart” in English because I’m a sentimental mom-to-be, need I say more?! Check out the 1 minute video and full instructions below on how to work up one of these babies for your place.
