DIY Origami Baby Mobile from B-Inspired Mama

Hi!  I’m Krissy from B-Inspired Mama.  I’m a former art teacher turned full time mama.  B-Inspired Mama allows me to connect with other moms and share simple ideas for kid-friendly arts and crafts, easy recipes, and preschool learning fun.  I love Craft-O-Maniac and am thrilled to be here sharing my DIY Baby Mobile today. 

I really lucked out; J.C. is such an easy-going baby.  As long as he has something interesting to look at, he’d lay happily on the floor all day.  But lay happily in his crib – not so much!  So this mama got to work making him something interesting to look at above his crib

I was inspired by this cut paper snowflake I found on Pinterest.  But instead of making the entire snowflake, I just did steps 1 through 14 (here) to create each hanging origami piece.  I made 12 using 2 different sizes of square scrapbooking paper, but you can create and use as many or as few as you’d like.

Once you have created your origami pieces, you can use them to create the mobile.  You will need…

  • the inside hoop to a large embroidery hoop, painted the color of your choice
  • paperclips
  • embroidery floss or other light string
  • scissors
  • origami pieces

1. Clip a paperclip on the point of each origami piece.
2. Use a square know to tie a 12” length of string to each paperclip.

3. Use a square knot to tie each string/origami piece onto the embroidery hoop.  Prop the hoop on the edge of the table to help evenly space out the hanging pieces.

4. Tie three pieces of equal length string to the hoop equal distances apart.
5. Bring the other ends of these together and tie together and then to a paperclip for hanging.
6. Hang completed mobile from an eye hook installed securely in the ceiling.

Does your baby have a mobile?  Does he/she like it?  Have you ever crafted anything for your baby?
