Hello all, I hope you had a great weekend! I had a pretty busy weekend, planning, preping and throwing a bridal shower for my sister, but I still managed to put this lovely mobile together! I got the idea from t does wool. I thought the flowers were so lovely, I had to figure out some project to use them in so I decided put together this little mobile to hang….somewhere. I’m not sure where I will put it yet.
What you will need:
- newspaper, cut into 2″ squares (you will need 20 to make 4 flowers)
- thick yarn or twine
- an interesting stick or a dowel
Construct 4 flowers. I used this tutorial, which is very good, so I will not duplicate it. The tutorial says to glue the flower petals, but I used double sided tape instead because I didn’t want to wait for the glue to dry. The tape worked very well.
Cut several pieces of twine/yarn varying in size from 10″-18″. You will use four of these to attach the flowers, and the others will hang down without flowers (the twine without flowers is optional…I decided not to use them, but I think if I did it again I would use them). Take four different lengths of twine and thread one through the center of each of the flowers. Tie a knot on one end of the twine (the end that is on the “front” side of the flower) leaving 1.5″ hanging.
Gather the ends of all the twine. You should have 4 that have flowers attached and several that do not. Tie them in a knot around the string. Trim the ends if you would like, or leave them hanging.
