to enjoy enhanced features like these.
Delicate, feminine and completely delightful, a butterfly mobile is perfect for a girl’s room or a warm-weather celebration. Easily make your own butterflies with our downloadable template.
Mobiles can be mature and contemporary too. With embroidery hoops of different sizes, position the two hoops so that they’re perpendicular to one another. Then hang a few sphere-shaped sets from your mobile’s base, a chandelier or the ceiling using fishing line.
Make a photo mobile for a graduation or wedding. For weddings, we love making two: one for the bride-to-be and one for the groom. Attach paperclips to the ribbons so you can switch out the snapshots.
Finally put your ribbon scraps to use, or even dollar bin ribbon so often found at craft stores. Kids will have fun selecting their favorite ribbon patterns or colors and making the mobile their own.
Though made of cookie cutters, this mobile’s hardly average. During a buffet or holiday celebration, we love to place it over the dessert table as a sweet nod to the treats below.
Using our downloadable instructions, fold one of a variety of origami patterns each day and hang it from your mobile. Use it as a way to count the passing of time, or even to count down to a special event.
Reminiscent of the propellers of a plane, this playful mobile is great for a boy’s birthday party in blues and greens or a girl’s party in pinks and oranges. Hang the pinwheels face down and you can also suspend it above a crib. Learn how to make your pinwheels now!
Turn the challenge of deciding on a paint color into an attractive piece of décor! Cut your paint chips into shapes and hang them as a mobile, or try more of our uses for unused paint chips.
