Make Your Own Nursery Mobile

Posted by Leah Mann

The first time I was pregnant, I had grand plans to craft my very own handmade mobile to hang over the baby’s crib. I found a great one on clearance at Babies R Us – it wound up and played played “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” – and for my own special touch I intended to cover the pink fabric with green and replace the pink and red butterflies with something less girly…and then I never got around to it. We still used the mobile, but let’s just say it wasn’t the most masculine accessory in my son’s room.

This time around, I’m dead set on making a mobile for the new little boy on the way, and now with the help of Pinterest I have dozens of great ideas. Here are a few of my favorites:

Vellum strips from Blush Ink’s Glamour This blog

Paper airplanes hanging from a bike wheel from Lauren Clark

Paint chip circles from E Tells Tales

Paper hot air balloons from Brown Accents

Yarn chandelier from Hostess with the Mostess

Butterflies from Heartland Paper

Felt flower balls from Cake

Pinwheels from In the Hushed Hours

Paint chips and embroidery hoops from Apartment Therapy

Cloth birds from Spool

Patterned fabric circles from Sew She Sews

These ones are great inspiration for DIYs, but they're also available for purchase on Etsy.

Paper clouds by Gosh and Golly

Fluffy sheep by Pingvini

Paper circles by Lil Sprout Creations
