Today, I’m going to show you how we hung our favorite blabla knit mobile! :) A few people have asked me how we hung it, and we had to re-hang it since we moved the crib after we moved out all the office furniture, so I figured, “why not photograph it?”! Also, I felt I should share it as a part to sharing the quilt wall. I took this opportunity to paint the wood block white and gold. I don’t know why I ever even stained it black in the first place! What was I thinking… You can revisit what it used to look like in the old office|nursery tour.
1: Museum Putty
2: Wood Block Moulding, with a 1/4″ hole drilled into it. (We did this ourselves, they do not come pre-drilled).
3: A large paperclip!
4: A Staple Gun
5: A cute mobile!
Step 1: Straighten your paperclip, but leave the smaller curved edge.
Step 2: Slide the paperclip through a hole in the knitting at the length at which you want your mobile to hang, so as not to damage the mobile string.
Step 3: Insert the paperclip into the hole.
Step 4: Pull the paperclip and the mobile string through the hole, but do not free the string (there should be two strands of string).
Step 5: Staple the string to the wall at the point where the paperclip was. Be sure the staple goes around the string, not through it. (This is Tyler’s hand!)
Step 6: Make four balls of museum putty.
Step 7: Place one ball of putty at each corner.
Step 8: Pull the wood block up to the ceiling while keeping the string taut. (I was doing this one-handed so I could photo it, but you get the idea, right?)
Step 9: Secure the woodblock in place.
And it has never fallen even once! :)
I am saving this post next time I need to hang a mobile!! :) PERFECT!
