Default DIY hanging mobile

I made this hanging hamster mobile this afternoon.

All natural wood, wicker and twine used. No need for glue, nails, etc so I can be certain it's pet safe.

I'm planning on hiding treats in the wicker ball. I'm looking forward to Lil waking up to see what she makes of it

I'm thinking of adding a walnut shell hanging to it.

Anyone have any good ideas of what else I could add?

It looks good. Hope she likes it. You could have a peanut or other treat hanging from it.

Looks pretty good to me! You may just want to lower it a little so that it's easier for her to get to the top.

Yeah, I realised it was a little too high after I had already cut the twine so I made her a bendy bridge to sit underneath the mobile.

She may get on it by climbing from the shelf.

That is very impressive! A walnut being added may make an excellent addition Looks really nice, and I'm sure Lil must be loving it

Just an update picture of the mobile with added walnut hanging and bendy bridge.

I'm pleased to say Lil seemed to love exploring it last night

Thanks

All the supplies I used are from a wonderful Scandinavian craft shop in Camden, London called Slanchogled.
