Butterfly Mobile...

In honor of our first butterfly sighting of the year, I decided that a butterfly mobile would be the perfect way to celebrate the emerging of our fluttery friends!


You will need a butterfly template which can be found HERE (I found this one doing a search for "printable butterfly templates...if you don't like it, then continue the search where I left off)

Origami paper, wrapping paper, anything with a colourful pattern, and also some solid coloured paper
Thread
The inside hoop of an embroidery hoop
Tape
Glue Stick

Cut out as many butterflies as you wish out of your patterned paper...using the template butterfly to trace around.  Cut out an equal amount of butterflies out of the solid coloured paper.

Cut your thread into various lengths...I did some 36 inches, some 20 inches...a nice variety of lengths is key.


Take your thread and patterned butterflies, tape the butterflies to the thread, on the backside of this, glue down a solid coloured butterfly...your thread will be sandwiched in between.  I left about 5 inches of space in between butterflies, but you decide how many you want per thread.



When  you have done as many butterflies as you wish, tie your thread onto your embroidery hoop at intervals.  Tie four lengths of thread to form a hanger, and hang!


Isn't it gorgeous??!!!  The perfect way to honour our butterfly friends...not to mention what a delightful home brightener!!!!

  6. Cut out as many butterflies as you want from your design page using the model butterfly to trace. Cut an equal amount of butterflies out of strong colored paper. I can tell that the original site will guide you better in this context that is good enough for us. Cut your cord into longer lengths I do some 36 inches, some 20 inches different lengths are key. Take your string and the butterfly pattern, tape the butterflies to the thread, on the back of this, glue the colored butterfly thread will be sandwiched in between.
