Raise your hand if you really aren't into the overly bright, multi-colored, often plastic mobiles you see in the big toy stores? Yep, me too. That's not to say that I haven't seen super cute ones at the boutique type baby shops and of course oodles of sweet options on Etsy, but for James's room we were trying to keep costs super on point, so I knew I needed to come up with something budget-friendly. I was also running short on time as we only started decorating his room late into my third trimester.... Enter this DIY feather mobile!
The nursery was shaping up to have a camping / outdoor / adventure vibe with the mountain mural and black, white, and kelly green scheme, so when I came across these green feathers at the dollar store that were a perfect color match, I knew I had to buy a couple of packages. What you'll need:

-two pieces of dowel
-string (I used a white string but a clear fishing wire would be great too!)
First up, tie some string around the center of the two pieces of dowel to create a 'T' shape. This will make up the top piece of your mobile. Simply wrap the string around a bunch of times, tie in a knot, and cut off the excess. Then you need to tie some string to each individual feather. I did a tight double knot about halfway up from the bottom of each feather. Do a bunch of these and vary the length of the string here and there.
