Think outside the box when creating art for your child's nursery. Things like tiny booties, an ID bracelet from the hospital, a newborn’s blanket or hat, a coming-home outfit, footprints and weight and length notes from doctor visits also look great in frames or shadow boxes.

Add Color to the Shadow Box
Cover the back of a shadow box with colorful fabric or paper. (If you can’t find a shadow box that works, a regular frame with the glass removed can do the trick too.)
Spray Paint Baby Shoes
Spray paint a pair of baby shoes. (Colors like oil-rubbed bronze, dark indigo, hot pink or glossy white could all look good — just choose whatever works best with your paper or fabric backdrop.)
Mount the Shoes
Mount the fully dry, spray-painted baby shoes in the middle of the paper or the fabric backdrop of the shadow box with a heavy-duty adhesive applied to the soles to secure them. Allow them to fully dry while laying flat before hanging them.
