Jungle Theme Hanger for a Nursery or Toddler Bedroom
If you are looking for neutral gender nursery decor, why not make this jungle theme wall hanger.
A jungle theme bedroom is bound to be a roarrrrring success for a toddler, and you can also incorporate a jungle theme into a nursery as well, if you are looking for ideas for a nursery that is gender neutral. This jungle-themed wall hanging rack is a simple DIY project that you can do yourself with a jigsaw, scroll saw or Dremel Moto Saw, and it will definitely bring a touch of the jungle into any bedroom.
The board used to make your own jungle-themed hanging rack similar to the above is 12mm plywood. But do try and purchase a good quality or veneered pine for the project, or substitute with a PAR pine product. Or for those who prefer to order rather than make, here's the link.
YOU WILL NEED:
12mm plywood or PAR pine
Clear polyurethane sealer
Steel hangers and screws
Jigsaw and narrow-cutting blade, scroll saw or Dremel Moto Saw
Orbital or Random Orbit Sander and 180 / 240-grit sanding pads
1. Draw the shapes for the animals using a pencil. You can obtain images from the web, or you can draw freehand designs.
2. Once you have drawn out the outline, carefully cut out the shapes with a jigsaw or scroll saw. Sand smooth after cutting out.
3. Outline the pencil with an artist's paintbrush and Woodoc gel stain. You don't have to worry about any bleeding - gel stain doesn't do this.
4. Once the design is done, apply 2 to 3 coats of clear polyurethane, let this dry and then attach the coat hangers.
Now the jungle-theme coat hanger is ready to mount on the wall. Use nylon walls plugs and screws to ensure a safe mounting.
