Handmade Mobile for Nursery

IMG_5971

I’ve been wanting to make Brinlee’s mobile for some time now and today I got all the tools necessary to get everything completed! Went over to the local Hobby Lobby and found yarn, along with a steel circle. I had some hemp yarn at home in order to create a dream catcher look with the circle.

Took some time, but I continued to wrap the hemp yarn around and create a fun design.

Next was creating the tassels. Just need yarn, scissors and something to wrap the yarn around. I had this stationary box and decided it would make the perfect size I was looking for.

At first I wrapped the yarn around 20 times, but decided to wrap 40 times for a thicker tassel.

Tie a double knot on top and cut the bottom.

Flip the knot within the yarn strands to create the left image, then tie additional yarn around to create a unique tassel. I decided on two ties for more detail. I then cut extra yarn and hid them within to have a clean finish.

I used the hanger from my son’s previous mobile. I hung each tassel with hemp and tied knots along the circle. Also used hemp to attach to the hanger. I did the final touches all while the mobile hung from the hanger to ensure everything was balanced. I also made each tassel a different length.

I enjoyed making this craft and was excited how it turned out! I hope Brinlee likes it too!
