Have you accumulated baby photos throughout your child’s first months and would love to display them around your home? If the answer is yes, then it’s your lucky day! Forget the old school way of framing them and putting them up on your hallway!

If you’re looking for something a tad more creative than a classic framed photo, we’ve got the perfect craft idea for you. (No judgement, though – check out our personalizable framed photos available here). With this cute DIY idea, you will have all your precious photos in one beautiful decor piece. 

What you need:

  • A 20 cm wooden or metal hoop 
  • Scissors
  • White string 
  • Tape 
  • Your favorite postcard photos

Here’s how it works…

  • Select your favorite six photos and divide them in three rows. Here, I’ve used the MyPostcard ‘Polaroid’ style, where you could even add a caption or text.
  • Cut your string into three different lengths (each about 10 cm longer than the last one) and tape two photos to it per string, leaving some space in between them. The last photo should be at the end of the string.
  • Then grab your wooden or metal hoop and tie the top of each string onto the hoop. Ideally you should form a triangle with each string, so all sides are evenly weighted. 
  • Now cut three more strings that are all the same length and tie them right where the strings with the photos are placed. Leave 5 cm at the end of the strings and tie them up together. 
  • You’re done! Your new photo mobile is ready to be attached onto your ceiling, showcasing your beautiful baby photos! 

We would love to see your creations!

Hiya, I’m Maud. I’m an English girl who's moved to Berlin - because who wouldn’t fall in love with a country which has words like ‘Kummerspeck’ hidden around every corner... I love traveling and finding out the quirks of each country - and what better way to remember them than on a postcard?
