A cute idea for a baby mobile!

After my 3rd baby granddaughter was born my daughter had seen an idea for a cute mobile to hang above a crib. Since she has 4 boys and this was going to be her first girl, she wanted her room to look really girly!
So, I cut out the flowers, butterflies, and dragonflies with my Cricut,(which made it very easy peasy).
I spray painted a wire wreath form, white and then we hung the flowers and butterflies with fishing line and used a little crystal bead to keep the line from pulling through.

I first tied some lines across the entire frame, if you  look close you can see the lines crisscrossing each other. While we were making it we thought of all the possibilities with colors and shapes and the list was endless. We thought of dinosaurs, tractors, bugs, bows, different flower combinations and what cute possibilities there are. So be creative and make your own combination because they are made from cardstock they flutter so cute with the smallest amount of breeze in the room.
                                                     Have a great creative day!
