Adorable Handmade Baby Mobiles for the Nursery

This adorable mobile makes me want to pull out the craft box!

With just a few weeks left in my pregnancy (I hope!), I’ve been putting all the finishing touches on our nursery.  All of the big pieces are here, the art is hung on the walls, and slowly but surely I’m making my way through all the laundry.

One thing I don’t have yet is a mobile for hanging over either the crib or the changing table.  I know this isn’t a necessity, but I have heard from other moms that mobiles can occupy babies for long stretches of time, and can be a great addition to the nursery.

I looked for some inspiration online and discovered that other moms (far more crafty than me) have made some incredible handmade creations.  Here are ten adorable handmade baby mobiles that make me want to pull out my glue gun and get to work!

  • Rainy Days 1 of 10
    Rainy Days
    I love the idea of taking something that is usually sad like a rain cloud, and turning it into something cheery and colorful in a nursery. This is probably one I should consider in Seattle!
  • Yarn Balls 2 of 10
    Yarn Balls
    I like that this mobile is colorful, but has no "theme" attached, so it could be re-purposed for multiple nurseries or even kids' rooms.
  • Elephants 3 of 10
    Elephants
    I am a huge sucker for yellow and grey, and I think this mobile looks so calming and peaceful.
  • Paper Flowers 4 of 10
    Paper Flowers
    I am not a crafty person at all, and I feel like I MIGHT have a chance of being able to make something like this. Simple, colorful, and adorable.
  • Birds & Branches 5 of 10
    Birds & Branches
    This is my personal favorite of the group, mostly because it matches my nursery the best. I love the wooden rings the birds are perched on!
  • Sleep Sheep 6 of 10
    Sleep Sheep
    Nothing like counting sheep to lure the little one to sleep, right?
  • Forest Fun 7 of 10
    Forest Fun
    Owls are everywhere this year, including hanging above the crib! This forest themed mobile is such a cute touch.
  • Up, Up, and Away! 8 of 10
    Up, Up, and Away!
    My little sister had a hot air balloon nursery, and I always though it was so cute! These look simple to make, and would definitely brighten up any room.
  • Recycling 9 of 10
    Recycling
    This is definitely a more unique look, but I think the recycled bike wheel is so cool for a mobile. The paper airplanes would be so fun in a little boy's room!
  • Vintage Appeal 10 of 10
    Vintage Appeal
    This mobile just screams Anthropologie to me, and I think it would be so pretty in a little girl's vintage-inspired nursery.
