inspiration image and tutorial: Small for Big
I had been contemplating getting one of these photo mobiles, that you can clip your own photos or postcards to, but I was still undecided about what to hang from it, until I saw this Pinspiration. The painted patterns are just so cute, and the animal silhouettes go perfectly with the loose theme of around the world safari we've got going on.
I used a couple of the templates from the (easy) tutorial, along with other animal silhouettes I found via a Google image search and traced them onto thin cardboard. After I cut them out, I got out my craft paints, gave them all a base coat on both sides, and then added some fun patterns after they dried. In the meantime, my mobile frame was delivered (thank you, Amazon Prime!), and I just clipped the animals on after I assembled and hung the mobile.
Really easy and kind of fun to do, and now Henk has something fun to look at when he wakes up in the morning. Or when he lays in his crib refusing to nap (ugh).
