Airplane Mobile

by Amanda

My son and I had been flying to see my parents as much as possible before he turned 2 and we would have to pay for a seat for him. He fell in love with airplanes so when we found I we were expecting another boy I decided to decorate the "boy's" room in an airplane theme.

I found so much cute stuff online but it was all waaaay too expensive and that's when I went into super craft mode. I made all the decorations I found online but the mobile was my pride and joy. I drew out the pieces for the body, wings, propeller and tail wings on paper then traced them onto balsa wood. I cut the top of the mobile out of some plywood we had and drilled holes in it for hanging. I really enjoyed using power tools too! I finished it all off with paint and hung the planes using fishing line. The only thing I paid for was the balsa wood too...cute project for about $3 eh?
