After searching high and low for a mobile that fit in with my daughters bird nursery theme I gave up and decided to make my own. This is my favorite kind of DIY project, really simple and it looks great. As long as you can tie some knots and use scissors you can do it, and then when people ask you where you got it from you can say you made it and look very impressive.
Once I found these pretty bird ornaments, from Dot & Bo, the idea of a simple mobile just seemed right. I wanted the birds to be the focal point and appear to be flying, so I used fishing line to tie the birds to the brass hoop. I originally thought I would use an embroidery hoop as the main support for the birds to hang from but a quick look on Amazon and I found this beauty. A little gold cord and some fancy knots to suspend the hoop, and voila, a pretty bird mobile!
I like that these bird ornaments can be reused and repurposed through the years. and Charlie seemed to think they were pretty cool when I gave them a test drive. I’ll have more pictures of how I’m using this mobile in an upcoming post about Charlie’s temporary nursery.
