There are many exciting things to look forward to when welcoming a baby apart from the actual arrival of a baby. Decorating the nursery in anticipation is quite fun, especially when you get to choose how to customize the room for your new arrival. Choose a color scheme or theme that you love, and then you can make a mobile that fits the nursery perfectly. A cute and whimsical mobile is a classic part of nursery decor, and what better than making one yourself?
First of all, you should always be careful with mobile placement. Baby mobiles should never be placed in a way that can threaten the baby’s safety. Don’t hang a mobile (or anything else) over the crib. Instead, you can decorate a dresser, rocking chair, or corner of the nursery with the mobile.
