Sock Monkey Mobile

My family is anxiously awaiting the arrival of a sweet little boy - a rarity for us (I'm one of 4 sisters - with only one brother - and thus far we have only produced female grandchildren for my parents). However, my sister is pregnant with her second child - a boy; we are very excited!

My future nephew's nursery has a sock monkey theme and based on the pictures that my sister has sent, it is turning out to be ADORABLE.


Using mini sock monkeys and Christmas ornaments (thinking outside the box!), my sister created this mobile.  


The base is a wire wreath form (like the bird mobile that I made a while ago), but I love that she covered the metal with decorative embellishments. I think I will be revisiting my mobile - wouldn't a feathery boa would be the perfect addition to a mobile filled with sparkly birds?


Imagine what fun this little boy will encounter everywhere he looks in his room!

Thanks for the post Kristin! It took several days to make and probably a couple thousand dollars but I think it was worth it, don't you?

Those are so cute--I have such a weakness for sock monkeys, then combine that with my love of tiny things and I'm smitten. Thanks for sharing!

Great mobile. I once made a mobile using wire hangers, dental floss and two popsicle sticks - but yours looks MUCH better.
