More Hanging Mobiles Made out of Cardboard and Fabric

Craft:


Unfortunately Caity is snowed under again with work this week… so here’s another little post from me!

As you know, I love hanging mobiles! They fit into any space and look so funky. I’ve made quite a few over the time of our blog!

… and a mobile made out of cardboard and fabric.

Well, this is another version of my Simple Hanging Mobile. I completed it recently for an engagement present for some friends. 

These mobiles are really, really easy to make. All you’ll need is some cardboard (use an old box), scraps of fabric, scissors, spray glue, string and some hardy sticky tape.

You’ll find all the directions listed here. Try one out!

Happy making!

Simple Blue and White Hanging Mobile

Craft:


This is yet another one of my hanging mobiles made out of cardboard, material, glue, string and sticky tape! I just love them - they’re so easy to make, and they look so good hanging up!


This style of mobile would look lovely hanging inside a front entrance. It’s double-sided too, so it can be hung from the ceiling and it will turn around and display all the different materials you have used. What a nice welcome for your visitors!



I made this one using exactly the same methods as per my Pretty- in-Pastels Easter Egg Mobile – the only difference is that I drew random circular shapes instead of egg shapes on the cardboard, and I threaded a few buttons at the bottom of the mobile to give it a nice finish (and a little bit of weight).


My Simple Blue and White Hanging Mobile is now on its way to the UK to a friend’s newly purchased home.

Happy making!
