If you’ve been daydreaming about designing your baby’s nursery since before you found out you were pregnant and you’re someone who loves all things DIY, this post is for you. One of the key elements to a nursery, besides the crib, is the mobile that hangs over it. Since it will be the one piece that has the potential to captivate your sweet newborn before and after he dozes off to sleep, and hopefully keep him happy and content longer, why not customize it into something really special. From simple and elegant to challenging and elaborate we’ve got a baby mobile that fits every DIYer out there. Flip through our slideshow for the one that fits you best.
