Fun, Adorable Batch of DIY Baby Mobiles

A baby’s nursery just isn’t a nursery until you’ve added a mobile. There’s just something so magical and special about a baby being stimulated daily by such a simple toy and in our case … home decor! Any theme and very simple ingredients can make a mobile shine. Think about what you’d like to create and get inspired!

This is also a great opportunity to try your hands at a DIY project. It’ll come straight from the heart to your new baby and be a fun way to use your creativity. Just knowing that mom or dad made them something especially for them will mean more than they realize once they get older. So take this opportunity to get to work!

Maybe you have some extra scrapbook paper laying around (or you can go to places like Hobby Lobby and snatch paper for 10 cents a piece, such good deals!). Put all those colorful, patterned sheets to good use and make something. Look at this DIY mobile for example. The pinwheels will spin and the colors will have your baby’s mind going and add more color to the room!

Or maybe you want something a little more whimsical. Try making these precious baby birds and your bundle of joy will be dreaming of her new flying friends. Instead of scrapbook paper, grab some cardstock for this project so the birds remain sturdier.

And here is another paper adventure! This hot air balloon project is extremely adorable and doable. Great for a circus theme or a baby boy’s room filled with cars, trains, planes and every other type of transportation. This DIY is too cute not to try!

Okay, now we’ve got to breakout the flowers! Using felt and buttons, this project is a breeze. Get out your glue gun, heat it up  and get to creating!

There’s nothing more relaxing than falling asleep to a rainy night. And this rain and cloud mobile may be just the trick to keep the crying at bay and induce more baby sleep at night!

Butterflies are pretty! These ones are no exception. I love the lightness but voluminous feel of this project. It’s like there’s a swarm of butterflies that are coming to take your little one off for a little adventure.

Take a peek at some more DIY baby mobiles for inspiration. Maybe you can grab an idea and create something original for you and your baby’s nursery!
