A colorful piece of nursery decor, learn how to make this paper circle mobile to match your room.
When I found out I was pregnant, this was one of the first projects on my list. I have seen variations of this all over the web and knew I had to make my own version.
I waited until we had the room painted before I decided on the colors. I went with a fade top to bottom from dark coral to white to aqua. It mirrors Baby Girl’s room perfectly.
There are many tutorials out there but my favorite, and the most detailed, came from Boxy Colonial. Take a look at her tutorial if you want to create one of these for your self.
I varied my technique just a bit, after I punched out all my card stock circles I used a good scrapbookers glue to hold the them together versus double-sided tape like she did. I also used embroidery thread to string my circles.
To hang the strings of circles from the embroidery hoop I tied them on then used hot glue to secure them in place once I had the spacing correct. I wrapped the inside and outside of the hoop in ribbon to cover the string.
I hung the mobile over the changing table in hopes Baby Girl will be mesmerized and won’t wiggle during changes….(yeah right). Either way it looks great, you see it from the hall as you are entering her room. I love that I don’t have to remove this like a traditional mobile over a crib, it can stay there as she grows.
Do you have a mobile for your baby? Tell me about it.
