Elephant Mobile Tutorial


I had some questions on how exactly I made this, so I decided to post a full-fledged tutorial! Here it is, step by step!


What you need:
A paper punch shaped the way you like it
At least 30 paint color strips
A knitting ring
Thread
A needle/sewing machine
Ribbon/string to hang mobile
Tape
Glue

1. Punch out whatever your shape is! Make sure you have enough. Remember: it's better to have too many than too few and you will need two to make each of them double-sided.


2. Glue your shapes together so that when they twirl around they are pretty on both sides.


3. Thread your shapes onto strands. Mine were too little to use a sewing machine, so we threaded them through their eyes. Be flexible and don't give up! It will be a little different for every different shape.


4. Tape strands onto the knitting ring.
5. Tape three ribbons/strings to hang mobile and mount to ceiling.
