As an expectant mama obsessed with crafts and decorating, I spent many hours pouring over websites looking for ideas and inspiration to use in the nursery. Inspiration came not from brilliant designer, but from two items that have been hanging around my house for ages. My great grandmother was a talented crafter, and though I never got to meet her, I am blessed to have inherited some of her handmade quilts and doilies. Two of her quilts provided the inspiration for the whole nursery, and for this craft in particular.
I used the colors in both quilts to choose ribbon for a mobile for above the crib. I used a wire wreath form and LOTS of ribbon to create this mobile and bring in all the bright colors. You can find a tutorial for the ribbon mobile here.
