Also, here is a cute little video on how to make an elephant mobile. They may look simple, but from my near nervous breakdown due to DIY mobile failures, I know there’s much more work involved than meets the eye. A bit pessimistic? Maybe. Folks, I’m not trying to discourage you from trying your own. Do, make, try, mobile away! Just do more homework than I did, and save yourself the trouble.
In our circle of friends, this is the year of the baby. I kept hearing friends complain about the lack of options and cost of cute mobiles. When it came time for me to find one, I decided to go the DIY route. I posted a few months back how I made Gemma’s mobile. It only took me pulling my hair out and cursing through three tries and multiple trips to Hobby Lobby.
If you are wanting to make a mobile for a nursery or just whimsical decor, here are a few DIY ideas that I found on the web. Each of the eight ideas are so different, but lovely in their own right.
