Diy Crib Mobile
Now, let’s focus on this one for starters. First the supplies, right?
- 9 small pompoms
- a plastic (or paper) straw
- sewing thread
- a needle
There are beautiful DIY crib mobile options out there. I just never got to making those really great ones I read about on Montessori sites. But then I thought to myself one day I better hurry up making some crib mobile otherwise my baby might grow up before I get down to work!
…Which encouraged me to simply grab a few really light items laying around – a straw, several small pom poms and a thick sewing thread. Yup, this baby mobile DIY was ready to make in a moment, while thinking about what feather-light items I have lying around. 🙂
How to make a diy crib mobile
2) MAKE A 3-POMPOM GARLAND:
make a pretty large knot when the pompom is on the thread. Then proceed with the next pompom, then add a knot. Repeat for the third pompom as you see in the photo and then stop (please ingnore the two excess pompoms on the photo below, they were not meant to be there when taking the photo :). Don’t cut off any excess thread, just leave it there.
Then use the two additional pieces of sewing thread and thread 3 pompoms through each.
Oh, and when I say ‘thread through the straw’, I mean simply place the straw in a vertical direction and attach the needle to one end of the thread. Then leave the needle guide the thread – it will easily fall through and come out on the other side of the straw. Then remove the needle.
5) Now you’ve already made the main part of the DIY crib mobile and it should look like this:
5) One last thing to do: add another piece of thread to hang the mobile: thread it through the plastic straw and tie a knot. Done!
Baby mobile will encourage focus and offer additional visual experience to the baby. And so much more!
