Pottery Barn Nursery Mobile

DIY Mobile for nursery based off of a Pottery Barn Kids catalog
As many of you know, this January my life took a turn when we added a baby to our team! I found that traditional mobiles were too fussy for my taste and for the tranquil nursery I wanted to create, so I came up with a mobile that is as sweet and simple as our little Adalyn.  I was inspired by a wreath that made appearances in the Pottery Barn Kids catalog, but was not available for sale.  Fortunately, I was able to create it in just 15 minutes.

Cutting stems 6″ or shorter, I weaved individual stems throughout the wreath placing some on top, some on the side and a few below.
I tied 2 ribbons together with a knot at the base of the wreath leaving 6″ of ribbon dangling down and 3′ at the top for hanging from a hook. 4 of these were placed on the wreath. Then secure the wreath with the loose ribbons by tying a bow around the hook.  {RPM Photography}

    This is so pretty. I had a friend who used a tree branches and tied ribbon to it holding the letters of her name. It would totally go with this mobile. So sweet!

      Thank you! A 3M removable command hook or a ceiling hook from the hardware store both work well.
