Fix Typo PREVIOUS A germy affair NEXT Tattooed pregnant mama Show/Hide comments [ 14 ] Yes!! I recently took my dissatisfaction with mass produced mobiles to the interwebs in search of an easy DIY. I didn't come up with much and was pretty disappointed at the cost of having a custom one made. Thank you, thank you, thank you for the timely solution to my woes! Hopefully I can squeeze one in before baby comes -on Friday!- and send in pics! RAWK! Reply This is adorable! If I planned on using a mobile I would totally try DIY'ing this with fishes and ocean creatures! Thanks for sharing. Reply Cute! I have been collecting mobiles from thrift stores so I can steal the musical part and make my own mobiles to attach to it. This is bookmarked for me to come back to after a trip to the craft store. Yay for "me time". Reply That's what I've been doing too — I've got a thrifted mobile that I'm taking apart and recreating with Dear Girlface deers: http://offbeatmama.com/pr/oio/modules/tracker/go….

I think I know what I'm going to make my friend for her baby. Yay! Reply This is awesome! I'm totally going to try it out 🙂 Reply I just made one for my son who is due in November and it turned out awesome! I found some cute celestial wooden pieces that I put a hole in to tie them up. Now I have extra stuff for my daughter and I to make one for her room too. She cannot wait. I spent $15 and will get two adorable mobiles for 1/2 the price of 1. I have pictures if anyone wants to see, just not sure how to do that here. Thanks! Reply You can put them in our Flickr pool: http://www.flickr.com/groups/offbeatmama/! I'd love to see! Reply Hello! I am trying to access the tutorial but it says its a restricted blog 🙁 does anyone still have it? Reply Hey Shelly, It turns out that blog has been deleted — I've updated the post with a new tutorial! Reply Same problem here. I found this on Pinterest but can't access the blog and therefore no go on the tutorial. 🙁 Reply This post was originally published 3 years ago, and it seems like the linked blogger has since deleted her blog — I'm going to look around and see if I can find a similar tutorial online!
