I like to think I’m creative, but not crafty, so it’s not very often that I take on little projects like this unless it’s cost effective and easy. In this case, I was looking for a cute desert themed mobile for the nursery, but everything I was finding was so crazy expensive!

Below was my inspiration. (Photo is linked if you want to see the Etsy listing):

I loved the look, but not the $120 price tag

Instead, I found this sewing pattern for some cute desert animals. Again, I’m creative, not crafty so I wasn’t about to hand sew them. Instead I found this girl on Etsy that would sew them for me for about $26. I asked her to attach an 8″ string to each one in order to have them hang from the wood ring.

Next, I bought a wood wreath ring from Michaels for about $3.99.  After a little bit of hot glue and some string, voila! My simple little mobile was complete for a grand total of only about $30.

I hope this was little post was helpful! You could definitely get more creative with it if you’re on the craftier side. Please feel free to comment with any questions. ❤
