No nursery is complete without a fun mobile to hang from the ceiling.  Dress up your little one’s room with this whimsical mobile design by Natalie of Johnny In A Dress that uses something many households probably have on hand:  Christmas ornaments!  She used clear glass bulbs stuffed with bright bits and bobbles, but ornaments of all kinds would work.  She also used a pair of metal hoops that she painted green as a base; you could easily substitute thrifted embroidery hoops instead.  [how to make a glass ornament mobile]
