Baby Nursery: Framed Vintage Bib, DIY Ribbon Mobile, Chalkboard Tray
Since the new “nursery” is more of a playroom than an actual nursery (I’m still debating whether or not we’re buying a second crib – so far, “no” is winning) I’m way less interested in making it perfect than making it fun and functional.
At the same time, I feel sort of bad that Baby Girl is going to be forced to share her space from the very beginning with an older brother so I’m putting a lot of effort money thought into special touches just for her.
I mean, it’s SUPER AWESOME that we’ve already banished most of the ugly, plastic, music playing toys to the second floor, but it also means a pale pastel princess color scheme is totally the question. Good thing I was already into the idea of bright colors.
Instead of boring the crap you with hundreds of individual posts explaining every step of each project, I’m going to do them in weekly (bi-weekly? monthly? OMG it can’t be monthly because I only HAVE a month left to finish all of this DEEP BREATHS DEEEEEEEEP BREATHS) round-ups.
Project 1: Find a way to display the vintage embroidered bib my mom saved from my (her?) childhood
I *think* it’s a cow surrounded by flowers. Or maybe a vase. Or maybe I’m still high on spray adheisive.
Since the bib is sort of pastel and the room is mostly bright, I wanted a bright frame to put it in.
Green frame from Target: $6.99, tiny fabric squares: free from my swag bag at The Creative Connection, but I’ve seen them at Joann’s for a few bucks a pack
Then I used the spray adhesive to stick the little squares to a piece of off-white cardstock.
I KNOW YOU ARE SO AMAZED RIGHT NOW.
Then I put the bib on the fabric/paper and popped the whole thing in the frame.
And now I have a lovely, girly, almost-free piece of art for the new nursery
Project 2: DIY Ribbon Mobile
I did not come up with this idea, not by a long shot. A Google image search for “ribbon mobile” brings up tons and tons of slightly different versions and it’s not you NEED instructions. But I learned a few things in my attempt so I’m going to post a tiny how-to.
I only ended up using the larger embroidery hoop and even though I did spray paint it yellow I didn’t really need to. You don’t see enough of the hoop for it to matter.
Figure out how long you want the mobile to be and cut ribbon to approximately twice that length. DON’T go your way to make it perfect, since the uneven lengths is what makes it sort of whimsical
I discovered that the thinner the ribbon, the easier it was to work with. I actually gave up on the wide orange kind because it kept coming unlooped. The grosgrain mid-sized ribbon also worked very well once I figured out how to tie it. I originally bought a bunch of ribbon at the fabric store but found MUCH cheaper options at Michael’s – 50 cents a spool with tons left over.
You would think randomly choosing the color order would make life easier, but instead I spent far too long worrying there was too my orange or pink in any one section
In theory, all you have to do to secure the ribbon to the hoop is hold it double, wrap the end where the ribbon is folded around the hoop, then pull the ends through until it’s tight.
But with anything thicker than 1/8th inch ribbon, it’s hard to pull it tight enough to make it stay – and I was NOT looking forward to gluing each one individually.
So what works is after you pull the ribbon through the loop end, take the free end and pull it through the loop again on the right side. It makes sort of a little knot without changing the way it looks too much.
Ta-da! Beautiful, one of a kind ribbon mobile for the nursery
Project 3: Chalkboard tray as door sign
I used to collect vintage trays and display them as wall art in my living room, so when I saw a chalkboard tray in the Pottery Barn catalog I thought it was a super cute idea. And one that is obviously so ridiculously easy there is no way anyone should bother to buy the one from PB for $200 (sadly, I can’t find the tray online to link to, but it was in the Thanksgiving issue.)
Supplies: totally NON-vintage tray I bought for 10 cents at church rumage sale, chalkboard spray paint, ribbon, Tacky Glue
Yeah, you don’t need a step-by-step for this.
One day, we’ll pick a %&# name, and I’ll write that on the sign
I’m going to hang it on the door.
Now I’m going to go spray paint some more stuff in my dining room. Because I’m sure that is AWESOME for the baby.

~~~o~~~o~~~o~~~o~~~o~~~o~~~o~~~DESCRIPTION:That special little one spends a lot of time looking up at the world from his/her crib and what happier scene could there be than this sweet little collection of hand-embroidered forest animals merrily hanging from logs. Even if you've never sewn or embroidered before, the detailed instructions included with this pattern set will have you stitching a pro!No sewing machine is required; everything is done by hand.PLEASE NOTE: This pattern is rated as intermediate difficulty because it requires greater time and patience than most other patterns in this shop. Tiny animals are actually harder to make than larger ones, however the stitches and techniques used are all the same as the easier-rated patterns. If you have little or no experience sewing and are nervous to try this project, perhaps you could try another pattern first. However if you are an adventurous crafter with patience and attention to detail, you should have no trouble completing this project, even if you don't have experience with hand embroidery.~~~o~~~o~~~o~~~o~~~o~~~o~~~o~~~APPROX FINISHED SIZE:Not including the string to hang it from the ceiling, this mobile is approximately 16 inches (40 cm) from top to bottom, and 10 inches (25 cm) in diameter.

It sounds much more difficult than it is and you can customize this one by choosing different sets of colored cardstock.

This cloud mobile is perfect for putting your little ones to sleep. What’s better than fluffy clouds? This mobile is also really easy to make and super cheap because you make the fluffy clouds paper.

8. Gray And Gold Feather Crib Mobile
This feather crib mobile is not made with actual feathers, it’s made with felt and it is gorgeous when it’s finished. You can do this in any color of course, but the gold and gray give it such an elegant look. This is perfect for baby boys or girls and it is really easy to make – if you have a die cut machine. Otherwise, you will need to cut out your feathers by hand.

Chandelier crystals, a wreath form and some fishing line are just about all you need to make this beautiful crystal crib mobile.

14. Rustic Twig And Paper Mobile
This rustic mobile is made from notebook paper and twigs and it is super easy to put together. You can create any color combination or design that you want with the notebook paper, then just cut out your designs for the mobile.

Dress Up Your Nursery with this Darling DIY Mobile
Here at Project Nursery, we strive to bring you amazing and useful DIY projects. We have partnered with Springs Creative, a company with a 90-year heritage that is rich in tradition and quality. This is our second project in a three-part series (check out our DIY fabric wall art project here) featuring simple, stylish DIY projects to complete your next children’s design project.
Looking for a simple way to add color and texture to your nursery decor? How about making a custom scrap fabric baby mobile? When my eye caught the adorable prints of the new Sarah Francis Collection from Springs Creative’s Springmaid fabric line at Jo-Ann Fabrics, I knew they’d be perfect for dangling above the crib in this fun DIY project.
Materials: a handful of coordinating fabrics (I used the Sarah Francis Collection from Springs Creative’s Springmaid fabric line, available at Jo-Ann Fabrics), 12″ wooden embroidery hoop, natural twine, rotary cutter and cutting mat (or fabric scissors), decorative beads (optional)
Separate the embroidery hoop—you will be using only the solid inside circle. Cut three pieces of twine to a length of 2 yards each (72″). Fold the strands of twine in half, tucking them underneath the hoop at equidistant points.
Pull the loose ends of each strand through its loop and tighten.
If you want to add decorative beads, string them on now.
After removing any salvage edges, cut your fabric into strips that are 1.5″ wide and 32″ long—don’t worry about making them perfect since imperfection is part of the charm of this project. You will need approximately fifty strips for adequate coverage. The fabric edges will fray a little, but that only adds character to the look of your baby mobile.
To secure the fabric onto the embroidery hoop, start by folding one strip in half. From the inside, slide the folded fabric end under the hoop and open the loop.
Pull the opposite fabric ends over the hoop and through the loop you created.
Tighten into a knot.
Repeat with each fabric strip, sliding them close together until you fill the entire hoop.
Measure 12″ up from the hoop and knot together the strands of twine. Braid the double strands for another 5″ and knot again. Tie a loop at the end of the twine for hanging.
A metal screw-in hook is the best way to fasten your adorable scrap fabric baby mobile to the ceiling. As with any nursery decor, use good judgement on placement and never hang the mobile low enough for a baby to reach.
This design allows you to perfectly coordinate the baby mobile to your nursery color scheme, and it can be completed in about an hour. Plus, your little one will delight in the way it softly spins and sways. So go break out your fabric scraps or pick up some new prints at Jo-Ann’s to make one today!
More About Springmaid & The Sarah Francis Collection
With a 90-year heritage that is rich in tradition and quality, Springmaid holds a strong place in Springs Creative’s history as one of the flagship licensing brandsu001f—a brand on which the company was founded and a brand that consumers today continue to recognize and trust.
Nine decades ago, they planted the seeds of a brand that was simple, unpretentious and trustworthy. With strong roots, it retains those traits today and into the future. The entire new Springmaid collection has been created from pieces from Baxter Mill Archive, housed at our headquarters in South Carolina.
Each collection represents several eras, ranging from the classic look of 1940s to the pop art of the 1960s.
The lovely Sarah Francis collection features meticulously designed floral prints in a spectrum of shapes and sizes. The bold colors and detailed designs make the fabrics coordinate together beautifully, but they are also robust enough to stand alone. The Sarah Francis collection is versatile enough to be used for sewing projects, home décor or crafts.
