Little Owl has been very interested in motion these past few weeks so Brian suggested I try making her a mobile. I was very excited by the prospect. I had an old calender that I wanted to use because it had fun, brightly contrasted images. Here is what I came up with:
To start I cut out five images from the calender.
I had some old cards that I used as card-stalk to glue the images onto.
Then, I cut the images out.
Next, I taped together three cards to make a triangle shaped structure.
Then, I punched a hole in each image and strung through a piece of string with a bead attached at the end. I taped this down for extra security. I taped the other end of the string (also with a bead attached) to the triangle card stalk. I did this with all five cut out images. I strung it from the ceiling above our bed.
Voila! A baby mobile. Baby's eye view:
Needless to say, I was very proud of my creativity, ingenuity, and mad awesome skills. And look, she likes it...
Yeah, or not...
Well, at least one of us does. ;) *pfffft*.
