I have so enjoyed watching your babies grow every month. But I also love how you Mama's use your creativity to display your babies' growth and decorate the blankets. I thought it might be helpful if I compile some of my favorite ideas in a quick list of ticks and trick for decorating your milestone blankets. Hope this helps!
Tips and Tricks for Decorating your Milestone Blankets
What’s going on in the news or your personal family? What holidays are coming up? Check out this cute slam dunk baby celebrating the Warriors NBA Finals win. When you look back at this picture you will be able to see not only your child’s growth but also your team’s big win.
In a hurry? You can decorate your milestone blanket with graphics and sayings using apps like Little Nugget: Milestone Blankets, Baby Story or MOLDiv to quickly add graphics or make collages with your pictures. MOLDiv has great options for creating a college once you’ve got all 12 milestone pictures.
Add a felt message board to your milestone blanket to document your baby's personality and how it changes month to month.
Take pictures in different settings and backgrounds. Go outside when the weather is nice. You can also take pictures on different rugs and floorings to add some texture to your pictures. When your baby gets old enough, try hanging the blanket on a wall and having your babe sit in front of the blanket.
Use your baby’s outfits to create themes for your pictures, and don’t be shy to add lots of accessories to your babies outfits. Sunglasses, giant bows, hats, etc., all make for great pictures!
