DIY Nursery Mobile (Guest Chloe)

My next guest blogger is Chloe of Rainbows & Honeysuckle. I found Chloe's blog back in January when she was a few weeks from having her baby boy.
 
She made this adorable mobile for the nursery that I wanted to feature!
The materials used were a small embroidery hoop (I know, icky orange, but it was the cheapest one at Michael's), paint swatches, a circle punch, thread, and a hot glue gun. (Diana says, "I love the orange!")
Be sure to cut out plenty of circles! I used about two full paint swatches in order to get enough circles.
Then I hot glued them to a thread. You could hot glue two same-colored circles together, but I liked having a gap in between the circles, so I hot glued one of each color to the thread, let the hot glue dry, then glued the same color onto the hot glue in order to get a gap.

You can find the rest of the tutorial here. Make sure you look around her blog a little bit and check out little Travis. He's adorable!!

  1. I love this! And that includes the orange hoop! I'm so glad we've gotten away from surrounding babies with pastels only. I believe vibrant colors are stimulating and something that moves - like this - is best for visual development.
