A Happy Birth day and Tutorial for a hanging mobile fit for a Queen
Happy Birthday to my Brogan~ her name originates from Ireland meaning pearl. We have had a wonderful start to this special teen Birthday. We are trying to create traditions for the older child now. I came up with this mobile being replaced by a throne and crown. Brogan was blessed with Swap gifts, Esty seller gifts , homemade gifts and brought.
~The Teen BIRTHDAY MOBILE~
I have a step by step guide for making the "Older child" Birthday Mobile (of course its cute for the littleies too)
I have not calculated the exact amount of ribbon you need as you might feel the need to make a smaller one and not have such a long length. so here goes...
you will need:~
~Organza ribbon ( this is best as it flows beautifully) silk of course would be luxury.. I used a length of 125cm/49 inches for the length of the ribbon
~I used the inner wood circle of an embroidery hoop your choice in size.
~paper roses/fabric I used the roses with wire at the back for securing to the hoop.
~ a tape measure
Cut your ribbon in lengths first. Tie each ribbon piece around the hoop. If you want, co ordinate colors. Once finished, secure the roses around the hoop. I then tied ribbon on each end of the hoop for hanging..
Please mail me if you need further help.
A happy day to all
