All it takes


Photobucket

An old embroidery hoop, fishing line, a butterfly paper punch, a needle, glue, and card stock are what you need to make a cute mobile.

I saw ones similar to this on etsy and wanted to see if I could make something similar to it.

I am very thankful that it was easier than I anticipated.

Just punch out the butterflies. Poke a hole in them with the pin. String them onto the fishing line. Add a drop of glue to secure the butterflies on the line. And when they are dry drape the lines over the inner hoop and then put the outer hoop on and tighten it. You can add a drop of glue to each line on the hoop to help secure it in place.

And WA-LA!

You have one dang cute baby mobile
