Mobile crafts of wool for the baby bed in small increments
The mobile can be considered the first toy of the baby. It helps for the Visual development of children and the coordination between hands and eyes. Did you know that the baby is fixed during the first month especially on the colors black and white?
For this reason the first mobile the best from these two shades should be have been made.
Do you want to learn now how you can build a mobile in black and white for your baby?
Materials you need for the mobile craft
Materials for the wool balls
Wool in black and white

One after the other
Step 1: make the wool balls
Cut out two circles out of the box with seven centimetres wide. On distance of 2 cm from the edge inward, cut out a hole. Cut 6 cm of the cotton. To bind the two circles. Wrap cotton around it. Do keep it until the center of the ball is virtually almost closed.
Step 2: shape the balls with the scissors
Now, take a sharp pair of scissors. Cut the projecting ends of the cotton, so that the whole looks equally as fluffy ball.
Step 3: Attach the wire to hang
Now separate apart the two circles slightly and pull through a long wire through them. Wrap the wire around the middle of the PomPoms out. One end must be long enough so that you can install this then to the main structure of the mobile.
Make the structure of the mobile
Cut out the two pieces of wood and paint them in the desired color. As I just said, are recommended for the mobile crafts for babies especially white and black. Make a hole of 3 mm at both ends of the wooden poles.
Attach the two poles together so that they form a cross. You drill a hole on the interface. Now decide how far down each wool ball should hang. We recommend a height of approximately 22 cm over the baby’s head. Put the wire through the holes of the wooden poles. Attach the cotton balls.
Mobile tinker – individualization
The cotton balls can be customized nicely. You can run in other colors. But for the baby a mobile in black and white is best, we suggest these two colors. Customize by making various interesting characters of the cotton balls. Why are you going to let them look not like animals? To do so would have to tinker eyes, legs, or other parts of the body only with suitable tools.
