It’s no secret that I love babies and a while back, I posted about the fabulous baby shower that I cohosted for one of my friends. Her baby girl is now here and every time she sends me a photo of her little princess my heart melts. As adorable as she is, she wants to sleep on mommy and she wants nothing to do with her crib. As a mom of two, I know all about babies sleeping better on mommy than in their crib. I wanted to make her crib so comfortable with a DIY nighty night gift that would help her feel more comfortable in her crib and to get away from mommy.

For her nighty, night gift I picked up Minnie Mouse crib sheets and receiving blankets at Walmart.

These are from the Disney Baby Minnie’s Happy Day collection and they are really beautiful. I love the fun and feminine color scheme.

To really bring things together, I decided to also make her a DIY Minnie Mouse Inspired Mobile so she can sleep peacefully. This was such a fun DIY and it was a bit faster than I anticipated. I am really proud of the results, it all came together lovely and mommy and baby loves it.

You’re going to need:

Cardstock Paper

Crafting Ring

Scissors

Ribbon

Glue gun

Diamond Decals

Instructions:

1. Trace and cut out shapes in desired size out of the cardstock paper. You can use a Minnie Mouse template if you desire.

2. I did the bow separately since I wanted to make them a different color.

3. Attach bow to Minnie Mouse Silhouette and add diamond decal to the middle.

4. Cut ribbons at desired lengths and attached to craft ring.

5. Using a hot gun, glue the shapes to ribbons. I chose to cut the ribbons at different lengths and attached them but you cut all at the same length if you so desire.

6. Once you’re finished attaching the ribbons and shapes to craft ring, glue tulle to the top so you can hang it. Make sure to secure the tulle properly with glue so it doesn’t fall and allow it to dry completely before hanging it up.
