Reusing Baby Mobiles As Christmas Ornaments

Each of my baby girls had their own infant/crib mobile. When the baby outgrew her infant/crib mobile, I took the mobile apart and made Christmas tree ornaments out of the pieces by attaching some silk holly and a pretty ribbon. So to this day, my tree has the unique mobile shaped ornaments that my girls reached out for and touched as infants. My daughters, all grown now, will have their very first Christmas ornaments to hang on their own Christmas trees when they marry. Hope others try this idea, too.

Oh my goodness! I did the same thing with my two boys, who are now 10 and 12. In addition, I took their wooden blocks and inserted a screw with a circular opening, and pulled ribbon through, and hung them too. Since they get a new ornament each year for Christmas, I no longer use the blocks, but the mobile characters still hang proudly!

Merry Christmas!

What a magnificent idea!! My tree is decorated with only what my children have made - the glass balls I bought when we married long since shattered. The kids love the fact that the tree is "theirs" and like to see the hard work they did on it. My kids range in age from 9-2.

My Christmas tree has cake ornaments on it. I saved some wedding cake ornaments from my wedding. I have 2 bells and I just put them on a piece of green curling ribbon. I also have the cake ornaments from my baby shower cake: Mini gift boxes. I have 3 and just placed them on various parts of my trees. Memories and keepsakes are important to me.
