I wanted a mobile that would look as interesting from Jaye’s perspective lying beneath it as it did from my standing perspective. I wanted something light and airy and playful and colorful and fun. I decided to make a mobile out of the yarn balls in the tutorial here.
I wanted the balls to hang at all different heights along the length of the rod, so I just spaced them out and arranged and rearranged them until I liked how they looked. I tied them to the dowel rod using invisible jewelry wire from JoAnns (a.k.a. fishing line?).
I hung two hooks super securely in the ceiling and attached the rod to that. It’s roughly centered over the crib and high enough up that even once Jaye can pull up, she won’t be able to reach it. I really LOVE the end result.
I’m trying to decide if this wall needs anything else. I think it doesn’t. Anything else might make it feel busy or cluttered. Thoughts?
