First things first, gather your supplies.
You will need:
1. Wire wreath (originally green) spray painted the color of your choice. I went with white. This can be found at most craft stores but I got mine at Michael's. The wreath will NOT have that cross thing in the middle. I added that (made from a coat hanger) because I wanted to add a string to the middle and I wasn't initially sure how I planned to hang the mobile and I wanted "options." Adding this is not necessary though.
3. Fishing line to hang from ceiling (#20 found at Sports Chalet), jewelry making line (#6 found at Michael's), and whatever you want to use at the top around the wreath. I used burlap and a white rose ribbon.
The first thing I did was using the 20# fishing line, tie 6 long strings to each of the "knobs" on the wire wreath. You are going to want to make sure this thing is level before you hang a bazillion strings of crystals to it. I didn't have much of a problem leveling this out. I then tied all six strings in about
**Note: You are going to need to find a place to hang this mobile while you are making the strings and attaching them as to avoid it getting into a tangled mess. I used a top closet rail.
Then, begin making your strings of beads with the #6 line. I did this "semi" randomly. I say semi because while I didn't specifically measure the length of each string or how far apart the beads were from each other, I did have a somewhat pattern that I was following to even out the look. This was partially because I was using different sized and colored beads. If you are using the same beads for the entire mobile, this would probably not be as important but I didn't want the same color and size to end up all in the same place.
I then cut and hot glued the burlap and lace flower ribbon together. If you've ever dealt with burlap, then you know it can be difficult to use. My nursery theme is "vintage-shabby chic" so I was okay with the fact that the burlap isn't cut perfectly. If that's not your style, check out some other types of fabric or ribbon. Then, hot glue the burlap to the outer ring being careful not to melt the fishing line that you used.
I'm really happy with how it turned out. I think it looks a lot better in person because my little point and shoot camera fails to pick up the "sparkle." But it's so sweet and adds so much to my nursery!
If you decide to make one, good luck! And I can't wait to see how yours turns out. :)
