DIY || Hand Stamped Crib Sheets


I found similar crib sheets online that I was dying over to have for Jaxs nursery, however they were $65. That's a little ridiculous for crib sheets, that's almost as much as the actual mattress. I decided to give it a try and do them myself. I had recently made the stamps which you can find how to do them yourselves here, all that was left was the crib sheet and paint! I spent a total of $12 (not counting the stamp since it depends whether you make it or buy one) on this DIY. Easiest and cheapest project! With the $65 I would've spent on that one sheet I can make 5 different crib sheets! Any color and style I want. Hope you enjoy it!


I found the crib sheets from here. The paint can easily be found at any arts and craft store like Michaels.

I chose a sponge to apply the paint so it gives it more of a distressed look rather than a brush which would give it more a streaky look. 

I placed trash bags underneath the sheets over the mattress so I can see exactly where my designs were going. After you've applied them, allow them to dry completely. Then place a thin rag or towel over the designs and iron them to help them stay on the fabric and they won't wash out as easily.

He loved them! ^^

And that's it! Now you can create the nursery you want without breaking the bank.
