How To: Make a Mobile from Vintage Illustrations

We love this idea from Kirsten at Kirsten*Can. Using vintage illustrations, baker's twine, and an embroidery hoop, she came up with this free-form mobile that looks just as fantastic in a playroom as it would in a nursery.

Pin it button big

Says Kirsten:

I painted an embroidery hoop red, and cut out lots and lots of circles (3 different sizes) from vintage children's books. Everything is hung with red/white baker's twine. It moves and sways a little with the slightest breeze, and I like how each circle is really different and fun. Fun to make, more fun to look at!
