Create a dreamy mobile for your home!
From Lova: "I really love silhouettes because they are so clear and precise, but when I made this mobile I wanted to make something a bit dreamy in contrast to that. I’ve always thought that hot air balloons are especially dreamy and unprecise because they go where the wind takes them."
You will need:
Thick paper - I used a heavy card stock
Xacto Knife - I love this one
- Use thick paper and an Xacto knife to cut out shapes of a hot air balloon, a cloud, and an anchor, or other things from the sky (maybe an airplane or a moon).
- Use regular white sewing thread to tie the pieces together. Make sure you balance the pieces so they are straight when you hang them.
- Hang your mobile from the ceiling or in a window and enjoy!
Search for reference pictures on google when you sketch out your shapes!
