I saw a few homemade mobiles on Pinterest the other night, and I decided that I wanted to make one right that second. As most of you know I am not a patient person and when I get a project in my head I have a hard time pushing it out...it's kind of bad. Anyway, turns out I had most of the materials I needed on hand! (I had to buy ribbon later but that was it)
Since baby girl's corner has a sort of "things with wings" feel to it I decided to do a mobile of butterflies.
The online Silhouette shop had some super cute 3D butterfly cutouts for 99 cents each, so I bought all four :) I used scrap paper left over from the owl frames and it took me about 15 minutes to get the butterflies cut. I also happened to have an embroidery hoop, so I painted it pink and wallah!

I was pleasantly surprised at the sweet little butterfly shadows on the wall when we turned off the light. I hope our daughter likes them too!
