Pinterest Success Story: A Bright Mobile

By Marisa Lerin Wed, 03/25/2015 - 05:40

Sometimes, believe it or not, I do something that I see on Pinterest. I'm going to share one of those projects with you today. Mobiles, garlands, etc are quite popular these days, and I was determined to make one since there's not really a lot involved. When I saw this mobile, I knew that was the one I wanted to imitate. Then, a little bit later when I was at Michael's and saw some bright, fun, cheap wrapping paper, I knew my moment had come.


I don't have a sewing machine, or any knowledge of how to work one, so this project did involve sticky hands and perhaps a bit more time than if I had sewing skills (I'm not actually sure on that since I don't know how much time it takes to run a line of triangles through the sewing machine).


Everything about this mobile is pretty rough around the edges, but I've really enjoyed it in the months it's been hanging next to our bed. I'm not sure why mobiles are generally reserved for babies and children because even as an adult I find it quite soothing to watch it turn gently.


Also, it was a quick and cheap way to add a lot of color to my surroundings, which is my main concern when it comes to home matters.
