There are so many shadow box ideas you can make, for your friends, your parents, your wedding, vacations with friends or family, your love for wine, and so many more. But there’s a new trend right now, to create a shadow box for your newborn, or maybe for their first birthday. You can include inside the newborn shadow box their first outfit they wore while in hospital right after they were born. Or their ultrasound pictures, the wristbands you and your baby wore while in hospital, and many more other first items.
And since there are so many options out there and you’ve got to do it yourself, we can guide you and help you choose from some of the best newborn shadow box that might be a great fit for your baby, or for your plans. Here are some models with different sizes, and materials, wood-types, and with different finishes on Amazon.
You can find inspiration across the web to help you arrange your newborn shadow box, especially on Pinterest. I’ll showcase some of the coolest below that I could find across the Internet.
Also, if you need some guidance on how to properly attach the items inside and securely stick them to the back panel of the shadow box, check out the instructional video below.
While researching these newborn shadow boxes, I found people are placing inside the baby’s first pair of socks, the positive pregnancy test, the newborn’s footprints, their name spelled out in a unique way, their first hat from the hospital. I’ve listed some so you can get inspired.
