While brainstorming ideas about how to cover the nursery walls, my mother-in-law-to-be stumbled across this adorable piece of art from PoshTots.com.

We absolutely loved it, but the price tag was a little steep and we thought that we could probably recreate it pretty easily. Then, she had an even better idea.

I stopped working earlier than I expected, so I started to give myself little projects to finish up the nursery decoration.  I was inspired by all the nursery blogs (my fav: Cheap & Chic Nursery) to create my own mobile.  I stumbled upon Heather Bailey’s blog that had a pattern for creating paper globes.

Using the pattern, I created three small sizes with blue/green and two large sizes with pink/orange.

I got two different sized embroidery hoops, painted them white, and using clear jewelry cord tied the small one inside of the larger.  I cut different sized lengths of the cord then hot glued the cord to the globes by inserting the string in a small hole where the corners of the globe met.

I then glued the large ones to the inside ring and the smaller ones to the outside ring.  Grabbed some yellow polkadotted ribbon and created a hanger.

When hung, the jewelry cord looks (almost) invisible and the globes are essentially floating in midair.  I love it.

Gabby checked it out for sufficient mesmerizing qualities, too.  I think we succeeded..
