These cute and creative mobiles will add a fun touch to baby’s room!
You know one thing I have never actually made is a mobile! We used the same one we had in O’s room in Baby V’s nursery and I still love it. It’s made of wood with tree branches and birds and feathers that spin slowly as the air moves around. I find it very relaxing.
And the fact that I’ve never made a mobile is kind of crazy because one of my most prized possessions is the last remaining piece of the butterfly mobile that hung over my crib when I was a baby.
My dad made all these little primary colored butterflies out of felt (they’re stuffed with cotton) and then apparently they loosely tied a ribbon from the mobile to my ankle so when I kicked the whole thing moved. Isn’t that a sweet story? And a bit of insight into where I get my make-it-yourself mentality!
But for some reason designing my own balanced moving pieces kind of scares me. Maybe that’s a challenge I should take on in 2016? After looking at all this gorgeous mobile inspiration it looks totally doable!
