Homes+ (Australia) - - STYLE & DECORATE -

You will need 1 x A4 piece of card­board; pen­cil; scis­sors; as­sorted paints (we used dark blue, white and grey acrylic paints from Lin­craft); paint­brush; 2mm holepunch; string

ONE Draw var­i­ous shapes onto the card­board with pen­cil. To cre­ate smooth curved lines trace around items like drink­ing glasses.

TWO Cut shapes out with scis­sors.

THREE Paint shapes in dif­fer­ent colours. Once dry, you can paint pat­terns over some of the pieces in a con­trast­ing colour. We cre­ated dots by us­ing a fine tip paint­brush.

FOUR Al­low to dry com­pletely.

FIVE Use holepunch to make a hole at the top and bot­tom of each piece, about 2mm from the edge.

SIX Tie sep­a­rate pieces of string be­tween each piece, leav­ing the top piece ex­tra long for hang­ing. Use triple knots to en­sure mo­bile stays together and is safe for bub’s room. Hang it up!
