Easy DIY Mickey Mouse Mobile for Baby
How to Make a Mickey Mouse Crib Mobile
Here's how to make a Mickey Mouse crib mobile for baby the DIY way! As you can see from the picture; there are very few crafts supplies needed for this "easy-peasy" nursery decoration.
There are several items in the following list of supplies that you probably have on hand. There is no hardware to buy like mounting brackets to attach it to the baby's crib or frames to built to suspend it from the ceiling.
If the mom-to-be (you?) had a Mickey Mouse baby shower with black paper lanterns included in the decorations; you may have access to EVERYTHING you need to make this ceiling mobile.
If you don't have the black paper lanterns on hand, no worries; you can buy the one large and two small lanterns needed to make the mouse ears for less than $12!
This is one of the easiest baby mobiles made with paper lanterns to make to hang from the ceiling because it's small and doesn't require a frame for support.
You will need:
Get Everything You Need Right Here
- Thumbtacks (not push-pins) with white heads or whatever color matches the ceiling paint color
- Cotton or clear nylon string
- Double stick tape to attach Mickey Mouse's ears (the two small lanterns) to his head (the large paper lantern)
- Two (2) small black paper party lanterns
- One (1) large black paper party lantern
If you are decorating a large baby mickey mouse nursery
and enjoy a challenge I would consider making a ceiling mobile like the one in the photo below using the traditional colors Disney used for this cartoon character, black and red.
The red, black and white paper lanterns create a bold contrast that tiny babies can see.
I threw the balloon in as a centerpiece for the arrangement.
Mickey Mouse Crib Bedding
Knowing how to make a baby Mickey Mouse crib mobile is just the start. You will need to choose lanterns in colors that will match the nursery, bedding and décor. Antique white or cream might be a better choice than the bright white lanterns that I used in the above example.
You can also make your own artwork for the wall with your favorite Disney quote written in chalk.
