I had an idea for a baby mobile that was inspired by some others I had seen on Etsy. They were quite pricey and so I decided to make one myself for a much cheaper price instead. My mom came over one day before L was born to help me. At that time, we didn't know if L would be a boy or girl so I chose to use greens, creams, and whites.
vellum paper (I bought a sample pack of assorted colors)
circle paper punches (I used 3 different sizes)
part of a wooden embroidery hoop (or any type of wooden circle)
We evenly balanced the hoop with string and hung it from my dining room chandelier. Then, we tied on the punched out circles and beads. We tied knots at the end of each bead and then used super glue to ensure that the knot wouldn't come undone.
I absolutely love how it turned out. I also love having it over the changing table rather than the crib. I do bump my head into the bottom part of it sometimes when changing him but he likes when I do that, because it starts moving all around and he just gazes at it with a smile.
