I have yet to post the nursery belonging to our new arrival, but in the meantime I thought I’d show you the nature-inspired mobile I made for the room for right around $10!
Last summer I collected a few cool pieces of driftwood from my friend’s lake house knowing eventually I’d find a way to incorporate them into my home, one way or another. Fast forward to the fall when I found out I was expecting and diligently began collecting nursery inspiration via Pinterest.
I loved the idea of featuring bits of nature throughout the room and knew the driftwood would finally come in handy!
Here are some of the ideas I had in mind:
I knew right away which of my driftwood pieces I wanted to use, so the first step was hanging it from the ceiling. I did so using ceiling hook anchors and clear fishing line. The next step was figuring out what I wanted to hang from it! I originally thought I’d do a mix of feathers and fabric snippets, but then I came across this wind chime from Hobby Lobby for 50% off (so $8) that featured metal leaves which I thought would be a perfect fit for the look I was after. I took the leaves off the wind chime and hung them from the driftwood with some twine I had on hand.
Voila – DIY driftwood mobile! Being that the driftwood was free and I already had the twine + fishing line, the only cost was the wind chime and ceiling anchors, bringing the total cost to just over $10.
