How-to: Autumn Leaf Mobile

tie one end of twine around each leaf

Tie one end of the twine around the stem of a leaf, and the other end around a good base for your mobile. For the mobile in this project, my girls and I are using old wooden quilting hoops. Embroidery hoops, dowels, sticks, and even clothes hangers also work well. Don’t worry about how your mobile will balance as you tie your leaves on–you’ll find the right balance when it’s time to hang the mobile.

I'm a writer, crafter, Zombie Preparedness Planner, and homeschooling momma of two kids who will hopefully someday transition into using their genius for good, not the evil machinations and mess-making in which they currently indulge. I'm interested in recycling and nature crafts, food security, STEM education, and the DIY lifestyle, however it's manifested--making myself some underwear out of T-shirts? Done it. Teaching myself guitar? Doing it right now.

Visit my blog Craft Knife for a peek at our very weird handmade homeschool life, and my etsy shop Pumpkin+Bear for a truly odd number of rainbow-themed beeswax pretties.
