try searching on Etsy! There are tons of shops on there that make them, and they can do custom too if you have something in your head you’re not finding. Good luck!

I made this one for our son! Much like your baby’s room we have no theme. His room is blue, orange, and grey. This was super easy to make and under 20 bucks.

jivet:  Have you considered not using a mobile? They look cute, but one sleep book we read suggested that it could be jarring or overstimulating – think about waking up in your bed with a bunch of stuff dangling down in your face. We did not use a mobile and my daughter has been sleeping from 7pm-7am since 9mos…. just saying (knocking on wood now). For the same cost I’m sure you could get some swaddling blankets, a cozy sleep sack, or a sleep sheep/noise machine – something that would help them actually sleep!

jivet:  Nope it’s super simple. This is exactly what I did. I went to AC Moore (any arts store) and bought a metal ring (you can find in the jewlery aisle) or you can get a plastic ring, fishing wire (also in the jewlery aisle), and scrapbook paper in what ever colors you want. I chose blue, orange, grey and white. If you get the individual sheets you’ll save even more money. I get a good size circle and traced circles all over the paper. Before cutting the circles out I lightly drew a line down the middle of each circle. Then cut the circles out. Now take a sewing needle and poke holes down the line you drew. 3-6 holes will be enough, depening on the size of your circle. After you have done this to all the circles take the fishing wire, make sure it’s long enough for you to put all the circles on and also long enough to connect to your ring and begin to “thread” the fishing wire through the tiny holes. Space them out, then tie around the ring and bring the remaining string together at the top of the ring, almost like making a tent. Hot glue the knots around the ring so they stay in place and you’re done! If any of these steps are confusing let me know and I’ll try to help! Good luck!
