Today I have a super easy holiday DIY project for you, a vintage ornament mobile. This craft is a great way to showcase some of your favorite ornaments! I have so many ornaments sometimes things get a little lost in my tree. One of my favorite sets is my vintage plastic ornaments I picked up at the flea market last year! They are so kitschy and cute, I just love them! This is so easy to do as well, and all you need is your ornaments, some twine or string, and an embroidery hoop.
The first thing you need to do is paint your embroidery hoop. Next, cut various lengths of string for your ornaments to hang down on, and cut four equal lengths of string to hang your mobile. Tie your ornaments onto one end of ornament string. Then you want to tie the other end to your inside hoop of your embroidery hoop at equal distances. I had five ornaments so I tied four of them onto the hoop and I left one to tie in the middle. Next, tie your 4 equal length strings to your hoop an equal distance apart. Gather up the four strings to meet in the middle of the hoop. You can add a middle string ornament to the four strings at this point if you wish. Tie a knot at the top of your strings for hanging. Clip any excess thread above the knot and hang. Easy right!
I really love how this little mobile turned out! I love how it adds a fun element to my holiday decorating! You can hang it wherever you like. I think it would be really cute over a bed, or maybe my favorite chair. We’ll see. You can really change the look with these too by using different color paints for your hoop and different ornaments. There are so many possibilities! I hope you all enjoy this super simple DIY! I’ll be back next week with more holiday fun! Be sure to tune in later today for a fun craft round up!
