I have been looking for a good mobile for the nursery and in the process came across many beautiful homemade baby mobiles. After looking closely at them, I decided " Hey, I can do that!" I am SOOo one of those people. I see something and will check it out closely and attempt to make it myself. Many of the attempts are not sucessful, but then others turn out even better!
Here are some of the mobile ideas I am currently toying with....
The butterfly mobile is the most simple. I could just use scraps of colorful fabric and hang at varied lengths. I think this is a great way to add a touch of color to the room.
The owl is actually a Christmas ornament-but isn't he so cute! I think I could make several of these little guys and it would make a super cute mobile. There is a templete for this owl that can be found here: http://juicy-bits.typepad.com/juicy_bits/2009/12/131-give-a-hoot-for-the-holidays.html
The next mobile is adorable and ties in the whole theme of this particular nursery. I would have to come up with a creative way to make it more like baby K's nursery. You can check out the rest of the nursery here: http://thegoodlifebyerin.blogspot.com/2010/10/emersons-nurseryfinally.html Super cute!
The last one of love! It and many others like it can be founf on etsy-but it comes with a price tage of $165.00. Yes, it is beautiful, but no thanks! Look closely and you will see it is sticks, wrapped in yarn, with fabric birds wired to it-how hard could that be-right?
Anyway, I am currently working on a couple of these and I will show you how they turn out.
Which is your favorite? Have any of you attempted to create your own baby mobile?
