DIY Monstera Leaf and Felt Ball Mobile

I’ve had so much fun working on Caroline’s nursery.  It really is my favorite room in the house.  I made a driftwood and felt ball mobile for Jack’s room before he was born (you can see that DIY post here) and I knew I wanted to do something similar for Caroline’s room.  

I ordered felt balls from Hello Maypole again (they have so many fun color combinations) and this time I used a mix of felt balls from the watermelon and lollipop sets.  I wasn’t sure what I wanted to hang the felt balls on, but I knew it needed to be something tropical and fun.  Luckily I had a few faux monstera leaves so I pulled off the plastic part of the stems and used the remaining wires to wrap the two leaves together.  I strung the balls on some white and gold baker’s twine that I bought in the Target dollar spot years ago (using a Chenille needle which has a larger eye than a normal needle), making sure to vary the lengths and number of balls on each string.  I simple pulled each strand of balls through different holes on the leaves and secured it with hot glue on the top.  Once all the strands were secure I tied fishing line to the mobile and attached it to an eye we screwed into the ceiling.  The whole thing was super easy and quick to make and I love the way it pulls her tropical garden nursery together. 

Stay tuned for the full nursery reveal…it’s going to happen very soon!  If you want to see my other “sneak peek” posts you can find them here: DIY pom pom lamp shade and DIY vintage dresser and mirror makeovers.
