My Project: Nursery Mobiles
DIY Handmade Baby Mobiles

I tried this: May 2012

Alterations: Instead of fishing weights, I used little pendants from the craft store to weigh these down.

Thoughts: Although a bit labor-intense on the upfront, these mobiles are the perfect addition to our nursery. They blow and spin with just the slightest breeze (or a/c from the vent), are really eye catching and make a cool, modern statement in the room. We hung five of these at varying heights over the crib. Maddie doesn’t yet sleep in her crib, but I know she will love laying underneath them and gazing up at the cool design. I already love looking at them while nursing in the recliner!

Update: If I made these again, I would use some of the thicker vellum paper, as the thinner pieces have really curled up. Also, Madeline is in her crib now, and she spends a long time each morning looking up at these, while chatting to herself. They are awesome!
