Last week I started on this little craft I have been wanting to do for Evelyn's room. I haven't been able to find any crib mobiles that I really like, so I was inspired by the one over at Young House Love, and wanted to give it a shot! I was trying to wait until I am done working to start on any crafts so that I have plenty of things to keep me busy, but I couldn't wait!
Here's what I did:
♥) I bought a bunch of fake flowers and plucked off the little buds one by one.
♥) Poked holes in the bud section of of the flower (the little part at the bottom), and threaded some lightweight floral wire through.
♥) once I had a ton of flowers threaded on, I wrapped the wire in an asymmetrical sphere kinda shape.
♥) I hung them all at different heights from a little wreath from the craft store.
Easy as pie (but kinnnda tedious)
soooo many tiny flowers.
The finished product! I love how it turned out!
Here is what her view will be, from in the crib.
All together the whole thing only cost me about $35 and a few hours in front of the TV plucking off flower buds and poking holes!
Still to come: a big ol' chalkboard for above the changing table, some artwork for the walls, and some tissue paper garland.
This is the fun stuff!
