DIY Leather Arrow Mobile - Averie Lane

Today Amber is posting from Averie Lane and you will LOVE this project! So unique and clever....

I am so excited to be guest posting here today at Everyday Art!

I'm Amber and I blog at Averie Lane!
I'm a mom and currently expecting baby number five! I was so excited to participate in this series because I've been wanting to make the new baby something special and as you can imagine, being the 5th baby means I don't need a lot. Even so, I did want a special place for baby in our room and I've had a vision of a unique baby mobile from the start.
Here's what you'll need...
The first step is optional.
In my case I didn't want the chrome finish on the photo mobile, so I chose to spray paint it in a metallic finish (Flat Chestnut by Rust-o-leum).

The rest is easy!
Then hang it! 
I couldn't decided how I liked the arrows...
all willy nilly....

...or pointing down...

Either looked great hanging over my the beautiful heirloom cradle my dad made!

Such a simple project and I love the results!!
