Awesome DIY Moon Shaped Cradle


Here’s a DIY project that will take your little one to the moon 🙂

Many parents like cradles for the same reason they like a bassinet. Their smaller size makes them a cozy nook for babies. When it comes time to put the baby to sleep, the enclosed space makes them feel more secure and comfortable. The smaller size also means a little more portability, in some cases.

This cradle has a great design as it makes picking up or laying down your child easier. It makes a cute bedroom decor too!

A clever and inexpensive way of achieving a rustic look can be done using reclaimed wood. You can either use stain or varnish depending on the finish you prefer.
