DIY Ombre Baby Mobile - Coral, Mintgreen, & Navy
Very easy and affordable project...but time consuming!
Using a large circle punch, cut out 80 circles of each color. I used 5 colors. Poke a hole roughly in the center of each circle. Imperfect placement gives the pretty angled effect of the circles when hanging. Using long thread (the length of my arm doubled) through a needle, string the circles, tie a knot after each one. Use 3 of each color per string.
Wrap 2 embroidery hoops (7 and 12 inch) in your choice of yarn color, then tie on your strings! I used 10 on the small hoop and 16 on the large!
Tie the two hoops together with the yarn. String it up by the outer hoop! Be sure to use more yarn than you think you need...you can always trim it after!
Pretty details! The key is imperfection! Not having the circles perfectly spaced, the thread all the same length, and even adding or leaving off a circle on a few strings gives a lovely tiered effect at the bottom!
Perfect addition to Reagan Colette's nursery!
