  • Sangam Hanging Mobile

    Cut out one of the PDF shape outlines and use this as a template to draw your chosen shape one to the card or felt.

  • Sangam Hanging Mobile

    Repeat Step 1. You should have two identical shapes on your felt or card. Cut out the shapes from your card/felt.

  • Sangam Hanging Mobile

    Decorate your shapes using glitter, pens and anything else you wish to add.

    You only need to decorate one side of each shape as you will stick them together as a pair later on.

  • Sangam Hanging Mobile

    Take one shape and cover the undecorated side with glue. Place a straw in the middle of your shape, the straw should slightly overlap the top and bottom of your shape. Stick the other shape on at this stage to create a 3D shape with the straw in the middle of it.

  • Sangam Hanging Mobile

    Take your length of string and tie a bell/bead to one end. Add more beads at this stage if you would like beads to be below your shape.

  • Sangam Hanging Mobile

    Thread the string through the straw attached to the shape, now decorate the string above your shape as you wish.

  • Sangam Hanging Mobile

    Finally tie a loop in the top of your string so you are able to hang your mobile up!

  • Sangam Hanging Mobile

    Why not try to make some mobiles of the other shapes too? The more the merrier!

Craft Tip!

Don't have any beads?

Cut up small pieces of different coloured straws as there cylinder shape works perfectly for threading onto a string and they can add lots of colour.
