How to Make a Butterfly Mobile

Dress up your nursery or playroom for spring with this butterfly mobile. Customize the butterfly and ribbon colors to match your interior – Kids will love the way the butterfly wings flutter in the breeze!

As always, please use common sense and caution. Never hang this mobile low enough for the baby to grasp, and be cautious of smaller pieces that can be choking items. Adjust in height as baby grows! It’s always good to be cautious.

Difficulty level: Beginner
Time to complete: 45 minutes
Age range: 12 and up

Things you’ll need:
Ribbon
Butterfly garland
10-inch embroidery hoop
Hot glue gun and glue sticks
Scissors
Pencil
Ruler

Things to do:
1. Make a mark on the embroidery hoop every 2 3/4 ” around the entire circumference. These marks will show you were to tie on the butterfly garland pieces.
2. Tie ribbon around the hoop, alternating colors. We’ve found it works best to cut the ribbon into 8″ pieces with a slanted cut.
3. Cut two pieces of ribbon measuring 24″ long. Be sure they’re exactly the same length, or your mobile will hang crooked.
4. Cut pieces of butterfly garland in various lengths and tie a piece at every mark on your hoop.

5. Use hot glue to secure the pieces in an “x” pattern across the hoop for hanging.

Make a Felt Heart Wall Hanging Tutorial

Difficulty level: Beginner
Time required: 1 hour
Age range: 12 and up

Things you’ll need:
Heart cookie cutter
Tracing tool
Assorted felt colors
Bakers twine
Scissors
Sewing needle
Pinking shears (optional)
Toy stuffing
12″-long dowel

Things to do:
1. Place the cookie cutter on a sheet of felt. Using a marking tool, trace around the outside of the cookie cutter.

2. Using pinking shears, cut out the heart. (You can also just use scissors here for a straight-edged heart.)

3. Repeat steps 1-2 until you have a total of eight hearts.

4. Thread your sewing needle with a length of baker’s twine that’s about 23″ long. Tie a knot in the end, then thread the needle through one of the felt hearts.

5. Layer another heart on top, then begin sewing around the edge of the heart. Try to maintain the same distance from the stitches to the heart edge. Tip: If you are having problems getting the twine to go through the layers, you can split the twine in half to make it thinner.

6. Continue sewing around the heart until you reach about 2″ before the first stitch you made.

7. Using the toy stuffing, stuff the heart until it is full.

8. Press the edges of the heart together, then stitch the heart closed. Knot the twine on the inside of the heart to secure it, then trim the twine.

9. Cut another length of twine, then thread it through the center of the heart, knotting the end to secure it.

10. Repeat steps 4-9 for each heart. You should have a total of four hearts.
11. Tie each heart to the dowel, tying them at different lengths so that they don’t get tangled when you hang them.

12. Cut another 23″-long piece of twine, then tie the twine around each end of the dowel.

How to Make a Heart String Wall Hanging

Difficulty level: Intermediate
Time required: 1 hour
Age range: 12 and up

Things you’ll need:
Three 1/2 ” dowels, 12″ long
Gray braided macrame cord
Red braided macrame cord
Scissors
Pencil or pen
Newspaper or other large scrap paper
Painter’s tape (optional)

Things to do:
1. Cut macrame cord into the following lengths:
22 lengths of 54″-long gray
22 lengths of 54″ long red
22 lengths of 23″-long gray

2. Using the 54″-long gray cords and one dowel, fold the cord in half. Place the cord under the dowel, forming a loop at the top about 1/2 ” from the edge of the dowel.

3. Insert the yarn tails through the loop.

4. Tug the yarn tails to tighten the rope around the dowel.

5. Repeat steps 2-4 with the remaining lengths of 54″-long gray cord. Set that dowel aside.

6. Using the 54″-long red cords, repeat steps 2-5 to complete a second dowel.

7. Using the 23″-long gray cords, repeat steps 2-5 to complete a third and final dowel.

8 Stack the three sets of dowels with the long gray strands on the bottom, the red strands in the middle, and the short gray strands on top. Tie a 23″-long strand of gray cord around all three dowels.

9. Tie the other end of the gray cord around the opposite end, again tying all three dowels together.

10. Create a heart template as follows: Use a ruler and marking tool to mark the center point of a piece of newspaper or other large scrap paper.

11. Draw a heart shape on the paper, keeping the center point in mind as you draw the top and bottom points of the heart. Try to draw a heart that’s as wide as your wall hanging.

12. Cut out the heart template. Place it over the cords, leaving a few inches of gray cord at the top and a few inches of red cord at the bottom. Be sure the template isn’t longer than the long red and gray cords. If it is, adjust it.

Tip: If you’d like you can use painter’s tape to attach the template securely to the cords. This might make it easier to cut the cords in the next step.

13. With the template on top of the cords, begin cutting the short gray cords in the shape of the top of the heart. Be sure you do not cut any of the long red or gray cords; you only want to cut the short gray cords.

14. Remove the heart template and trim the cords to make them neat and even. You may find it easier to hang the piece, then trim it so that the cords aren’t moving around as much.

15. Place the template on top of the cords again, matching the top with the cut gray cords. Using the template as a guide, cut the red cords to match the bottom of the heart.

16. Remove the template and trim the red cords so that they are at a straight angle on both sides.

17. Trim the bottom pieces of the long gray cords so that they are even. Hang your piece!
