This mobile is a modern alternative to nursery decor or a whimsical accent to just about any space in the home, office or surf shack. Displaying vibrant colors and intriguing designs as it rotates, my mobiles are eye-catching pieces of hanging artwork that will delight babies, children and surf bums alike. Made of durable wood, this mobile can be easily dusted (as opposed to paper or fabric) and look as wonderful as it will the day you hang it.

Be sure to look at my newest surfboard mobile: http://www.etsy.com/listing/94159281/wood-surfboard-mobile-mobiles-for-a

Each piece of hand-cut, reclaimed wood is decoupaged, sanded, distressed and sealed on both sides. I've used several pieces of wonderful fabric and paper and the wood surfboards are accented with hand-cut pieces of wool felt. Each surfboard is strung with hemp twine to a birch stick that has rolled wool felt in coordinating colors on each end. The twine is knotted to eyelets that have been screwed into the wood pieces making all connections extra secure.

The mobile measures 48" from ceiling to bottom and about 12" across. Each surfboard is approximately 3.5" by 7.5". My mobiles are carefully crafted by me right here in my smoke-free, home studio in Southern California. Bring a little California-inspired, beach shack style into your home!

This mobile is MADE TO ORDER. Please see "Additional Policies" for current lead time:

I'm always happy to take custom mobile orders. Convo me with color preferences and we'll work from there.

Thank you so much for taking the time to browse my shop!

Frequently asked questions about FlyingTreeMobiles

Unless specified otherwise when ordered, mobiles are strung to be hung from the ceiling: About 4 to 5 feet long (from ceiling to bottom of mobile). I will provide a white cup hook to screw into your ceiling and additional plastic line in the event of above average ceiling heights.

The included cup hook has a capacity of 10 pounds and is sufficient, but for a more secure installation I suggest purchasing a ceiling hook with anchor:
If you would prefer to hang this mobile from a crib mobile attachment, please select "Hang from Crib" under "Hanging Length". (IF THIS OPTION IS NOT PROVIDED: This is one of my larger mobiles that is best hung from the ceiling.)

The mobile will be strung to hang no longer than 18-inches. Please note: the crib attachment clamp is not included in the price of the mobile and must be purchased separately:

Pieces for Flying Tree mobiles are cut from solid wood (mostly poplar and pine, unless otherwise noted) - meaning no plywood or composite pieces containing harsh glues or chemicals. Thickness varies from 1/4-inch to 1/2-inch depending on availability.
Made of durable wood, Flying Tree mobiles can be easily dusted (as opposed to paper or fabric mobiles) and will continue to look every bit as wonderful as the day they were hung for years to come.
Most mobiles weigh between 1-1/2 to 2 pounds, depending on the style.
I personally create each component of Flying Tree mobiles with care in my home studio. I sand and shape each piece of wood individually before adding illustrations (printed onto transfer paper), fabric or paper. Mobile pieces are then sealed with a high gloss varnish. Plastic monofilament is knotted to metal eyelets that have been screwed into each piece, making all connections extra secure.
Flying Tree mobiles tend to move in even the slightest breeze. They do not come with mechanisms for spinning, but even in the act of photographing the mobiles I find it extremely difficult to make them be still! I think you'll enjoy their soft and natural movement as much as I do.
This mobile is MADE TO ORDER. Your order will ship THREE WEEKS after date of purchase. I try to get orders out as soon as I can - some months are busier than others. If you have a specific date you need your order by, please let me know and I will confirm whether or not I can provide expedited production.
