Ideas for Mobiles

Ideas for Mobiles

No longer restricted to the kids’ rooms, mobiles are fun and very fashionable in home décor right now.  Try your hand at making one yourself with a couple of ideas.

What You Need

Wire - You can use fabric covered floral wire or jewelry wire for hanging lighter items, welding rods (with copper coating), galvanized wire from the hardware store, or even a hanger snipped apart for heavier items.
Needle-nose pliers- You will need these to bend the wire into loops at the ends.
Wire cutter or nipper- For cutting heavier pieces of wire if you are using. Scissors will suffice for floral wire.
Hook- For hanging from the ceiling.


Items to Hang

Felt- Create 3-dimensional felt shapes such as birds, balls or stars and use them in a mobile. You could even create a galaxy. Check out this example.

Magazine Pieces- Make a mobile out of magazine ovals.

Origami- How about an origami goldfish mobile complete with origami instructions? I prefer cranes myself.

Wood or Blocks- Use wooden blocks for the perfect mobile for a child’s room. Other wood shapes can be used for mobile projects. I like the idea of wooden birds.


Have fun!
