.:Tutorial Tuesday - Circle Mobile:.

As I said yesterday, my friend Anna is having a little boy in October. We love getting together to do crafty things, and we decided we would whip up a mobile for sweet Max's room.

I got the idea for this from my niece's room. She has a cute circle mobile in pink, white, and green. I figured it would be pretty easy to re-create!

What you need:

- scrapbook paper
- circle punches
- sewing machine/accessories
- wire wreath form
- ribbon
- fishing line

We started out using two different sizes of punches to punch out all of the circles.

Then I sewed them together, alternating sizes, into strands.

Look at all of those pretty strands!

Take your wreath form, and tie two pieces of fishing wire on. Hot glue them so that they don't slide.

Take two pieces of ribbon, hot glue them around the wire. These will tie at the top wherever you hang the mobile.

Tie on the strands in whatever pattern you want.

Trim off your extra thread.


Cute and easy!
