How to: Make a DIY Modern Geometric Mobile

by on Apr 18, 2012

I’m no coffee drinker, but I do love grabbing a few of those teeny tiny straws when they are out for the taking just because everything tastes better through a little straw.  Who knew they also served the purpose of making up a modern, geometric mobile?   
Photographer Hope Helms was prepping for a new baby and was inspired by the Finnish Himmeli mobiles and wanted to re-create the modern look for the nursery.

She took a good handful of coffee straws and string and created a fun, geometric mobile for her “grown-up” baby room.  Because it is so fun and modern, it doesn’t have to be limited to nurseries!  A collection of different geometric shapes (and hey, throw in some red straws too!) would be a great piece of art in a room.

Hope shows how to make the mobile on her blog, here.
