Want me to let you in on a secret? Oh, you do? Ok, I’ll spill… Deep breath…ok here it is… I AM BROKE! Every time I spend more than twenty dollars I cringe! I don’t think there is anything in my closet over $20! When I found out I was pregnant with a baby girl OVER TWO YEARS AGO!!! (Gosh, where does the time go?) My heart wanted a beautiful nursery full of beautiful, expensive, things… my budget, not so much. This easy-peasy DIY flower mobile made my heart, AND my head, AND my wallet, AND my eye balls happy! Keep reading for more secrets….
What you will need!
Styrofoam wreath: I got mine at DOLLAR TREE! (for one dollar obviously)
Beautiful silk flowers
Cheap silk flowers to fill in the gaps
50% of these flowers are from DOLLAR TREE! Woop woop!
Crystal chandelier chains and droplets
Hot glue gun
Four one inch nails
THAT’S IT! Not to shabby huh?
First, wrap and glue your ribbon around your wreath.
Second: Push four nails into wreath. make sure they are directly across from each other so your mobile will balance.
Don’t push them in all the way, leave at least a half inch exposed. (see above picture)
Cut your flower stems so they are no longer than 1 1/2 inches
With sharp scissors, cut a hole in the ribbon. After hole has been made, stab scissors into foam to make a small hole big enough to fit your flower stem in. Like disssss (french accent because we are fancy)
Place larger flowers next to the nails for more balance. (Also, the bigger flowers hide the nails better)
Dab some hot glue on your stem and insert it into the hole.
Continue this process until you have burnt yourself with hot glue at least a dozen times, or, until your wreath is full and beautiful.
Now make four equal strands of the crystal chains. Tie them together with some extra ribbon. take the bottom chain link and hook it onto the nail.
Don’t be confused.
My dew drops came with this cute little spiral on top.
I should have taken a picture with out the spiral so you can see how simple it is.
Just stick the nail through the center of one of the circular chain links.
Do the same with your dew drops.
Now it should look and hang like this.
Take the extra ribbon you tied your chain with and secure it on to your ceiling. I screwed mine into the ceiling.
YOU ARE DONE!
Wasn’t that easy? And SOOOO PRETTY! (and cheap) I love it!
Here is what it looks like in my house.
Look at my sweet baby girl. Waaaaaaa…. She is so big now! (I took this picture a while ago, now she is almost two!)
Look how pretty this is. I am so jealous that my daughter gets to stare up at this beauty all morning!
Sometimes the light hits just right and it makes her room sparkle. Like a classy disco ball! What little girl doesn’t want a sparkly room?
