Baby Mobile on the Cheap

I never had a baby mobile set up in the nursery for Samuel or Levi since we never used the crib, but with the hope of using the crib this time, I thought it would be a good idea to have one.  I had scanned dozens of pics online of baby mobiles and found tons of cute ones on Ohdeedoh, too many to even link to.  My problem was that I didn't want to make the room too theme-y, but I did want to have a woodsy, natural, organic feel to it.  With it being my third and last kid, I know that it won't be a nursery for too long, and it will soon be a kid's room.  So I didn't want to make it a) too expensive, b) too baby, or c) too time-consuming to create.

I finally just went down to Hobby Lobby and browsed around until something caught my eye.  I looked at the Christmas ornaments for a long time and picked out several non-Christmas looking ornaments that would look cool.  But then I went down the Thanksgiving aisle and found something that fit the idea that was in my head perfectly.  This is what I came up with.

The room is not complete yet, but I'll post some pics when it's all put together.  The walls are still a little bare, but I have to work it all out in my head first.  An easy transition into kid-room is important to me, so I still have some more brainstorming to do.


  1. I must have missed this post - but OH MY WORD....that is the cutest thing I've ever seen. I adore it.


I love to hear from you!
