Do you know where the humble crib mobile came from? So much more than just nursery decor, mobiles are a type of kinetic art with roots in the late 1800’s when artists like Degas and Monet struggled to embed the feeling of motion into their paintings. Later in the early 20th Century, sculptors would truly bring the concept to life with pieces that were machine-operated or moved naturally with the wind. Perhaps they made their first appearance over the crib after parents noticed their babies becoming mesmerized by the art pieces? However the concept evolved, there’s no doubt they hold a hypnotic beauty. And, just as with all art, there are infinite adaptations to suit all tastes and aesthetics. Today, we’re featuring a dozen, delightful DIY crib mobile ideas that will add an artistic flair to your child’s room for years to come.
