I’m always looking for a good, sentimental baby shower present that isn’t too expensive. Sure, it’s nice to get something off the registry that mommabear has asked for, but there is nothing that says “I love you and this baby” about a $12 bottle warmer. Feel me? Anyway, I first made this for myself (because I’m just the type to give myself a present, haha! Okay, just kidding. We had just moved into a new house at that time and I needed to decorate Serena’s nursery) at Serena’s baby shower. We had a small tea party and had all my closest girlfriends write their names on these little onesies. I made sure to collect them before the tea party was over. I put them in a ziploc bag and kept them in a drawer until just a few months ago when I was on maternity leave for the boys. I know, I’m such a slacker. Haha, oops.

Anyway, here are the materials you need:
Estimated Time: 20 mins
Old picture frame
Staple gun (not pictured)
Staples (not pictured)
String (not pictured)
The size of your onesie really depends on the size of your frame, but if we’re talking about average size frames (my frame was a standard picture frame), then your paper should be 2.5 inches wide and 2.75 inches long. That should be a good start in case you mess up or anything.
You want to cut two slits on the side, leaving about 1cm at the top.
Once you have cut both sides, you want to take your circle lever punch and cut out holes at the bottom.
When complete, it should look more like a onesie.
All that’s left is creating a hole for the neck area.
Repeat the steps for as many onesies as you want or need. Pass this around to your galpals so you can be ready to hang the onesies.
Because I had a vintage, thrifted picture frame, there were hooks in the back already so I didn’t need to staple anything. If you, however, have a fairly new picture frame, all you have to do is staple the back with a staple gun (be careful!).
Tie one piece of string from on staple so a corresponding staple on the other side like so. Hook the onesies on!
Here’s the final product hanging in my daughter’s nursery! It’s high enough that it’s out of her reach but it’s still kind of cute!
