Celebratory Spring




I really wanted to make something celebratory for spring. This is huge but only took me a couple of hours to make. I chose paper scraps in a pretty color scheme and a couple of metal rings that are usually used for wreath making. 

SUPPLIES:
various decorative papers
metal rings
string
sewing machine
paper puncher
hot glue gun and glue sticks


  1. Punch a bunch of paper dots with a paper puncher.
  2. Sew dots together into a very long garland, leaving some space in between each dot.
  3. Connect 2 different sizes of metal rings by tying string between them at 3 places
  4. Tie 3 strings to the outer metal ring and tie them in a knot a 1/2 yard above the ring to make a hanging arrangement.
  5. Cut your garland into shorter pieces and hang over both metal rings. Make the inner end a little longer and the outer a little shorter.
  6. Secure the garlands to the metal rings with a little bit of hot glue. This will make your mobile more stable.

TIP:
