DIY: Airplane Mobile Birthday Present

First things first, Happy Birthday Andrew! Looking forward to celebrating with you soon! In the meantime though, here is one of your birthday presents- an airplane mobile with your childhood model planes.

About  month ago, while we were at my in-laws, I noticed Andrew's childhood airplanes that lined a shelf in his room. He has always talked fondly of them and loves airplanes in general. Little did I know, he had another drawer full of toy planes of all sorts. All of this to say, I felt the DIY brain waves working and ta-da! Here you have it! What better timing too as he will see this when he returns from his Air Force training. I think it looks better in person too. It lives in the work-in-progress office/guest room (more on that later). Hope he likes it!

I used an embroidery hoop (painted blue-grey) & hobby wire. 

 What do you think?


  1. I love it! And Andrew will too. I think I know exactly where this is going when you have a little boy someday...

  2. Tell him happy birthday for me! That mobile looks really great, I love the story behing the making of it!

  3. What a great idea! So sweet!


Leave me some love!
