While perusing blogs that I read I cam across the fantastic nursery that Amy did over at Positively Splendid. I loved everything about that nursery, the colors, the fabrics, the whimsy, all of it. One thing that really intrigued me was the Mobile she hung over the changing table. She said it gives her babies something to look at while changing diapers so they lay still. Light bulb, what could be bad about a baby laying still while changing their diaper? That’s right nothing. I decided to give it a try.
I used her tutorial and created the mobile for my nursery.
I used scrap fabrics I had from various nursery projects to make the birds.
Tissue paper from my wrapping stash quickly turned into the pom poms. I absolutely adore these tissue paper pom poms. They create a large impact with a minimum of expense and a minimum of work. They are light enough to be hung without doing damage to your ceiling and the husband is not even necessary to install them, just use a little thumb tack and fishing line.
To me the mobile is fun, whimsical and full of color. Just what I wanted in the nursery.
This is the view the baby gets to see. Such bright colors.
The mobile turned out better than I had hoped. It was a quick and easy project that helped to pass the time while I was waiting on the arrival of little miss.
