Ever since we started carrying wool balls in our shop, we knew we needed to make a new DIY baby mobile. Our last one had an outer space theme with planets, stars, and a rocket ship. So this macrame and wool ball mobile that Meagan designed is perfect if you don’t have a themed nursery and are looking for something more neutral. 

There is no template to cut out for this one — just follow our video tutorial below and be sure to comment if you have any questions!

You’ll have a ball making this

Our macrame wool ball mobile features wool balls in two different sizes and three macrame knots. This macrame pattern is a bit more complex than some of our other designs, so we recommend taking our mini course if you’d like tutorials for the macrame knots we used. Otherwise our video tutorial below will walk you through the assembly.

As always, you can customize your macrame wool ball mobile by using different colors or other sizes of wool balls. We went with more of a soft, neutral look for our mobile but you can always make your version more bold or colorful depending on your personal preference!

Skill level: Intermediate 

Knots used: Larks Head Knot, Square Knot, and Half Hitch Knot. Need more guidance? Check out our mini course on macrame knots.

Other DIY crafts shown: Crepe paper English ivy plant, frosted paper flower string light covers, and stuffed teddy bear
