Mobiles are essential on the list of nursery items. There certainly are a ton of good looking choices for baby, but crafting one of your own is extra special.
Check out this Alexander Calder-inspired mobile we came across over at Marie Claire Maison. The movement and colors are spectacular to look at. It's a great DIY project - some fine gauge wire and colored tissue paper is really all you need. You can make one as elaborate or as simple as you like. Even though it's homemade, it's sophisticated enough to hang in any room in the house.
