Fabric Wall Decals & Water Drop Mobile
I saw these clouds on the Thompson Family Home Tour and knew I had to do them for Josiah's side of the room! So I made my own fabric decals from this yummy spotted fabric - I can't remember who by? Sorry!
The adorable Whale Dreams print by Sarah Jane inspired the bubbly mobile! We just traced a variety of little circles from items around the house onto cardboard - egg cups (top and bottom) & drinking glasses. After sewing the circles into mini garlands I attached to a rattan ring covered in the same spotty fabric and used my lovely twine to secure to a common point.
I didn't find the 'right' shades of blue cardboard until I had already made my mobile - isn't that always the way! I still like it though and the little man doesn't care two hoots, he just loves his mobile, especially when it sways :-) I won't explain how to do the decals - you can find it all here. Basically just cornflour and water folks, it's that simple!
Be inspired by more creative spaces....
