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.

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

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.
