When I was pregnant with my daughter we were living in an apartment so I couldn’t do a lot of painting in the nursery. In order to decorate I used a lot of artwork and some DIY projects. I wish I had thought of creating my own mobile instead of the one we bought. It matched her bedding perfectly but lacked imagination unlike these awesome DIY baby mobiles. They’re made of everything from felt, card stock and paint chips to sewn fabrics, sewing hoops and wooden wreaths. It almost makes me wish I was decorating a nursery again, almost.
These DIY mobiles are especially great for a one of a kind baby room like the stars and clouds mobile from Our Little Casita. I love the way it matches the color scheme of the room perfectly.
I tend to think of birds as belonging in a girls room – probably because I love birds in my daughters room but I think this diy bird mobile could easily fit into a boy or girls room. Part of the beauty in this mobile by Ecab Online is how deceptively simple it’s made.
This mobile was the first DIY Mobile I saw on pinterest and it inspired me to see what else was out there. I’ve never seen an alligator mobile and I love everything about it! Source: Cody and Alicia
This is another mobile I would love for my daughters room and probably my favorite of them all. Source: Polly Want a Cracker
This mobile from TN Dickerson Diaries is unique in that it isn’t matchy-matchy and they used craft ribbon instead of string.
This mobile by Everything Designish is made with card stock and cost under $10 to create. To match the paint in your room exactly you could use paint chips instead of card stock. This is such an easy and one of a kind project it would be perfect for a baby shower. If you’re feeling really creative you could use shapes other than circles, vary the length and color combinations.
Even though my daughter is a toddler and may be a little to old for a mobile this would be a perfect fit in her new room just as a decoration over the reading corner. The whimsy, bright design Imprint Alish chose fits our design perfectly.
