Name Art: 15 Ways to Display Your Baby’s Name in the Nursery

As a mom, you spend so much time picking out your littles’ names. Zoe was easy; she was the first and I loved what her name meant: life. It was perfect. McKenzie came next because I wanted to call her Kenzie. However, the nickname never really fit her; instead, she liked M better. Then a few months after I had McKenzie I fell in love with the name Kennedy, but I wanted to spell it differently. So, when little miss K came along we did just that and we had ourselves Kennadi. Next came Sadie. This was a tough one because we always loved different names and we had to keep up with that trend. My husband actually came up with Sadie and I immediately fell in love. As for Grayson, well, we had it picked out for if Sadie had been a boy, so we just stuck with it. And that is our baby naming story. So in the spirit of names, I have come across some very creative DIY ways to display names in the nursery as well as some oh-so-pretty personalized prints too! Take a look at a few of my favorite ways to display your little one’s name with some fun name art!
