Handmade Baby Mobiles

Today we have Jenn stopping by to share some great nursery finds with us!

My name is Jenn and I am a freelance writer for Arcadian Home, an e-commerce website that specializes in top home decor ideas around the world. My first job out of university was at a home decor magazine, and I've been infatuated by chandeliers, antiques, and everything Jonathan Adler ever since. When I'm not writing about home fashions I'm planning them - my husband (and high school sweetheart) and I just purchased our first home! I turn to a lot of websites for inspiration and one not to be missed is Lemon Tree Creations - thanks for letting me guest post here today!

There are slews of mass-produced baby room mobiles to choose from out there, but why buy one when they can be made instead? Give little ones rooms that have a personal touch with a homemade baby mobile. It's an easy home decor idea and one of the sweetest of home accessories. Here are eight do-it-yourself mobiles that are too cute!

Pretty owlets

Shabby chic nurseries are all the rage, and drawing inspiration from retro owl themes is a popular starting point. This space features unique wall art, table decorations, and a mobile made from miniature stuffed owls.

ABCs (or 123s)

Dainty dangling letters (or numbers) hung from above make for a charming DIY baby mobile. Use a stencil to outline the shapes and then cut them out of pastel-coloured cardstock.

Pink and brown birdies

While most baby mobiles are centered over the crib, this homemade gem, fashioned out of pink and brown little birds, looks pretty in the corner of a this space.

Colourful and stimulating

Babies will love this DIY mobile that is a mishmash of funky hues and patterns. It's super easy to do: Just cover standard plastic poker chips with pieces of fabrics boasting bold motifs and secure onto pieces of striped ribbon.

Pompoms with panache

A striking homemade baby room mobile can be created out of coloured paper pompoms hung in a cluster, as shown here - it's engaging to look at and adds interest to this corner.

Whirlwind of style

A green and white spiral mobile is made out of cardstock cut into circles - the look is copied in the paper pinwheels fastened over the crib.

Sky's the limit!
