I honestly can’t believe its March! I had to drag the laptop out onto the porch, because there is NO way I’m missing this beautiful weather to type up a post.
As promised, I’m giving you the step by steps of how I made the mobile for Baby’s nursery.
I started out with some simple supplies.
Yarn, Styrofoam Balls, Glue, and String
Start by tying a piece of string around the Styrofoam ball. Be sure to leave a nice long tail on the string.
Apply a coat of glue at the top of the ball.
Start wrapping the yarn around the tail of the string.
Keep wrapping the yarn around the ball. Make sure to press down on the yarn so that it stays tightly wound and pressed against the ball.
Continue to add glue and wrap the yarn.
I found that a cut piece of an empty toilet paper roll worked great as a stand for the ball. It’s pretty frustrating when the half glue covered ball wants to roll around on your workbench.
When you get to the end, cut the yarn and press it into the glue. I applied a small dab of glue to the end, just to be on the safe side.
Once you finish one ball, make some more.
Next take the inner portion of an embroidery hoop and tie the tail of each ball around it.
Then, cut three long pieces of string and tie them to the hoop. These will be used to hang the mobile from the ceiling.
Wrap some yarn around the hoop.
Finally, hang the mobile from the ceiling and enjoy!
