I started thinking about what I had at home and what I could use and then I remembered a bunch of pool noodles in the garage. I figured what the heck let's give it a try. I started by cutting a slice in the noodle and placing it over the crib rail. Then, I took another one and fit it to those rails. Once I had fitted the noodles, I took a bit of electrical tape, this was to make sure the noodles didn't move, slide off or Pumpkin didn't pull them off!
They don't look very pretty do they? Then I decided that I just couldn't take the Ugliness of the pool noodles and tape. It is just ugly. I went to my trusty bin of fabric and pulled out this awesome polka dot fabric (that I used in college for a birthday bulletin board). It not only fit perfectly with the color scheme of her room but it is very cute.
I hung the fabric over the side to get a quick measurement of how much I would need to cover the pool noodles.
