Hello my darlings! We’re kicking off the week nice n’easy with this DIY... a paper mobile that’ll keep you busy during these long, hot days! It’s a little bit tedious but the end result is so beautiful! You can use it to decorate a colorful wall or as mobile for a baby shower present if you make smaller ice cream cones...
For this week’s theme, we really went wild with decorations, you’ll see more later on! I’m sure you’ll like it! Most important of all, have fun! For this project, we wanted to make something light and airy, all white tones with wood accents, but it’s up to you to make your mobile with flashy or pastel colors and even with stickers as toppings! We can’t wait to see what you make! Hugs and kisses, see you tomorrow with a recipe for frozen mochis... (oh yes, you read that right!)
For this DIY you’ll need:
Use scissors to cut between lines 19 and 18, as shown on the pattern, following the folds! Let’s move onto the holes that will keep the ball closed. The line that you traced at 1cm will be your guide (looking at the pattern will help you understand).
Finish it off with two wooden beads! Hold in place by threading the hanging wire and two other beads through the wooden rod and use crimping beads to hold it in place! TADA!
