Something Boring Just Became Fun

15 Nov

So as your baby grows and grows and becomes a crawling, walking, hands on everything little mess maker, precautions must be taken. The “fun” baby proofing must begin. Certain items must be moved to new locations, furniture with sharp edges must be dealt with and yes the outlets need their covers. I don’t know about you, but outlet covers are boring, (Yawn…) that is until I stumbled across this blog and saw her outlet covers.

This pretty much has to be the fastest and cheapest baby craft you could ever make. I thought it might be perfect for all the mommas that have no time to sit and craft for hours so here’s the fun little outlet covers I made for my nephew. I chose these animals because his nursery is going to be safari themed. Fun huh!



Aren’t those fun little accents to add to your nursery!

Well, if you want to make them, here’s what you need:

E-6000 (glue)
Wooden Animals (or whatever you want)
Outlet Covers


First and Last Step

Take your E-6000 and squeeze some on the back of the outlet cover. Take your outlet cover and place firmly on the back of the wooden animal. Let epoxy sit over night.

P.s. I don’t have children and I’m in no way an expert on baby proofing, so I don’t know if having these wooden animals would make it easier to pull off the outlet covers. It still seemed pretty snug, but wanted to mention it just in case.

I hope they add a bit more cheer to your nursery!

Enjoy your little outlet critters!
