HOW TO MAKE A DIY SHADOW BOX

Whether your little one is brand new or just turned two, it’s never too late to gather their newborn memorabilia and create your very own baby shadow box. A baby shadow box is an easy way to display those itty bitty baby things for years and years to come.

What you need:

• A shadow box frame – You can get one at Kmart or Target
• A glue gun or pins
• Various baby goodies from those newborn days

What to include in your shadow box:

This depends on the look you want and how many of these items you actually remembered to keep. Here are a few ideas to add to the box:

• Hospital ID bracelet
• Ultrasound photo
• Newborn photos from those first days
• Baby birth announcement
• Baby’s footprints or handprints
• Baby hat, gloves, shoes, socks, onesie
• Dummy, a piece of baby’s swaddle or small stuffed teddy
• Stickers to spell out baby’s name

Gather your items and arrange them in the shadow box. Once you’re happy with the layout, use pins or a hot glue gun to secure each item into place. Then choose a location to hang your shadow box and admire your craftiness.
