There were so many mobiles that caught my eye as I was looking for inspiration for little 'Pea Pods' room. I finally took a few ideas and combined them to make this one. It was pretty simple and I loved how it turned out!
Colored & Patterned cardstock
Cut out a variety of circles, ovals, whatever shape you like. I used ovals.
With a thread and needle string them together in any random order, varying the lengths of thread.
For the best results use the smallest needle possible and double the thread. This ensures a tight fit so your cut outs don't slide away on you. You can also add a dab of glue to the underside of each cut out to ensure they won't move anywhere.
Tie each length to an embroidery hoop.
Wrap the embroidery hoop with ribbon, securing the ends with hot glue. In hindsight, I should have done this first before tying the strands on, but I was trying to hide the thread...so whichever way works for you! Doing it this way just means you have to equally spread out all the threads beforehand. I then used 3 pieces of fishing line to secure to a hook in the ceiling and then 'fluffed' each oval into the perfect place!
