I shared earlier that I recently did a big makeover for my kid’s shared bedroom.  First, I gave their closet a bit of lovin’ and then started working on making shadow boxes to hang on their wall.  Today I am sharing exact how I made my kid’s Shadow Boxes to hold their baby onesies.

What supplies do you need to make Shadowbox Onesies?

How to make Shadowbox for your Kid’s Onesies

I started by making personalized paper pennants for each of the kid’s shadow boxes by cutting out chipboard.  I love the look of layered paper, so I found cute scrapbook paper and cut them out just slightly larger than the pennants to peak from behind.

I also gathered baker’s twine ribbons in blues, reds and pinks to use.  I had found them in the dollar section at Michaels!

My kiddo’s newborn onesies were too big for the size of shadow boxes I had bought, so I cut them off around the “tee shirt” size and add a simple cream lace trim to edge them.

I used a faux wood pattern scrapbook paper for the back of the shadow box.  Then, I started layering all the different elements.

My baby girl’s box looked so darling with a few more girly frills added to it.

And my little man’s box looked perfectly him with a bit of orange and blue added to it.

The final touch was adding each child’s initial and then decorating with a few ribbons and bakers twine!

The onesie shadowboxes are completed and in their perfect place on the wall!  I love being able to remember how sweet and little they were with this fun craft project.

  3. I love these Amy! I have clothes from when my kids were little stored in boxes in their closets. I really should have done something like this to capture that moment when they are little. They are adorable!

  4. I lost my pup to cancer in October – so I used my shadow box to put his collar, name tags, two pictures of him and his favorite toy – it hangs in my office and each time I sit at my desk, I see his smiling face!

  5. I love these! And I love the display of your ribbon from Michaels, did you buy them in that package or do that yourself! I have to look for those, thanks!

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Lynette! Part of the reason I fell in love with those ribbons was their adorable packaging, they came that way!

  6. These are really adorable. I saved some of my kids’ newborn onesies too. I don’t think I could bear to cut them, though. You’re very brave! 🙂

    1. Thanks so much, Polly. They were really easy to do and I love having their small newborn onesies displayed to always remember how tiny they were at birth!
