We’ve finally decided on a theme for my daughter’s room…Harry Potter’s Forbidden Forest! Think forest trees, animals, and, of course, a few wands thrown in for good luck. I’ll totally be hanging a version of this Woodland Creatures Nursery Paper Mobile!

Instructions for Woodland Creatures Nursery Paper Mobile
Take one of the faux birch branches and fold gently in half. Cut another branch with scissors and wire cutters to fit between the folded branch and hot glue in place.
Use a die cutting machine to cut your leaves and creatures out of four different colors of cardstock. I went with a pink/cream/chartreuse/gray combo but you can totally choose any colors you want. Perfect for matching any decor!
Layout all the shapes in the order you want them hanging from the branch. This just may be the most difficult part but once you’re happy with the look, run half of the shapes through your Xyron machine.
Remember that you’re going to sandwich the natural cording in between two die cuts to create the Woodland Creatures Nursery Paper Mobile.
Once all the animals are strung up, use a long needle to thread the string through the top branch. Secure with a knot and cut away any excess string.
The final step is just to add a decorative bow to the top of the Woodland Creatures Paper Mobile. Totally optional but totally cute!
Hanging Your Nursery Paper Mobile
I love that the faux birch branches have a bit of “moss” on them! Really adds to the realistic look of this Woodland Creatures Paper Mobile. I can’t wait to get working on one of these for my daughter’s Harry Potter/Forbidden Forest room!
