Baby cradle

My niece loves Dora the Explorer.  She just can't help herself.  My sister isn't into "characters" but I'm just the auntie... doesn't bother me a bit.
This little baby cradle was thrown in the garage sale pile.  I knew I had to give it a Dora makeover for Sophia's birthday.
First I spray painted it Sophia's favorite color... PINK!

I bought a cheapie Dora book and cut it apart.  I modpodged the pictures on the cradle along with some scrapbook paper.

I even added a little blankie to cover her baby up...

Dora never looked cuter, if you ask me! 


  1. What a beautiful job you did "Dorafying" that cradle. ( I love to make up words!) You sweet neice is going to love it!
