5 easy homemade mobiles for Instagram-worthy nurseries

Whether you are in the extreme-nesting stage and want to put a personal stamp on the bump’s nursery or you are looking for a special gift for a new addition to the world these mobiles are totally adorable and not too taxing for amateur crafters out there.

1. Birds of a feather

These cute little birdies will use up old scraps of material and are supposed to look rustic, so it doesn’t even matter if you don’t know your straight stitch from your back stitch.

2. Starry Starry Night

What DIY project is complete without a spritz of metallic spray paint? This pretty mobile could work with any cut out shapes (perhaps to reflect the interests of the newborn? Like cut out boobs or bottles).

3. Cloudbursting

These fabric and origami clouds could be hung individually or several together for even great impact.

4. Inspire them to explore

With the advent of Google Maps few of us have need for the collection of poorly folded world maps still stuffed in the glove compartment this mobile will give them a new lease of life and hopefully give your baba a curiosity about the big wide world out there.
