This little project has been brewing for awhile. I really, really wanted something to hang above the change table to give the Bubs something to focus on while I change and dress him. He’s a wiggly, little guy! And combined with wiggly, he’s got really stiff arms and legs which makes changing him a challenge at times. It’s getting better, but still…..
I blew the budget on the bedding (more about the bedding here) so this needed to be an inexpensive project. I found lots of great ideas on the internet but most of them involved sewing. This was my favorite DIY mobile from Sew She Sews. Loved it!
It took me forever to figure out how to string them up and then how to hang them in the nursery.
And then I set out to put it together. This resulted in some head scratching for a few days until I decided to “sew” the circles together. I got busy threading a needle with some grey thread and put the circles together….blue and gray together and the orange and white together. In the end I used 8 circles for each grouping and made 8 strings. That part took the better part of a morning. I had to use a little tape on the back of the circles because they started to slide around.
I used the same Mandarin Orange spray paint on the hoop that I used on the nursery lamp.
