We're always suckers for DIY baby-related projects, and this baby mobile tutorial from Emily is super cute — and pretty easy!
This tutorial is actually ultra simple and uses just a few inexpensive crafting supplies that you may already have laying around: photos, craft paper, scissors, glue, wire, and a paper punch. And don't stop at photos… think of spaceship shapes, circles and triangles, bugs and birds, monsters, jungle animals. There are just SO MANY possibilities!
