Before Klive was born, I really wanted to make him a mobile that would hang close to his changing table.  I even bought most of the supplies that I needed.  Alas, it did not happen.  I had seen this mobile from Pottery Barn Kids back when I was decorating his room.

I can't remember the exact price, but I think it was around $40.  Ummm, I don't think so.  The birds were made of paper!  I can totally make something close to that!

So, nine months after his birth, I finally completed his mobile.  Not as pretty or full as the Pottery Barn version, but I like it.  It took quite some time to trace and cut out all those little birds.  I used a thicker style of scrapbook paper for the birds, and they are hot glued on to fishing line.  Kind of like a bird sandwich.  Yes, that is two birds smashed together.  Like I said, lots of little birdies.  Kevin took two sticks and secured them in the middle with some wire.  The mobile is suspended from the ceiling by fishing line and hanging from a hook that is screwed in from the ceiling.  We already had everything, so the only think we spent money on was the paper.  The mobile ended up costing us a whopping $3!

Here is Klive's view of the mobile from his changing table.
