Let me know what you think!
Step 1: Supplies
4. Hot water
5. 2 bowls
Step 2: Making the Dye
Mash them with a spoon, adding a pinch of salt and 1/4 cup of hot water
Put the berries through a strainer and push them through with a spoon
Step 3: Coloring the Napkins
Flick the dye onto the napkin until you have the desired effect
Repeat with all 6 napkins
Keep them outside until fully dry
**If you don't want your hands to be stained afterwards, I suggest wearing latex gloves. If you don't mind the color (like myself) then don't bother with this step ;)**
Step 4: Body Base
Create the body like shown above. This is an easy step, just recreate the picture.
Dip the body into diluted glue or mod podge and begin wrapping
Tear 1" strips out of napkins and tightly wrap them around the body.
Repeat 3 times.
Step 5: Creating the Dresses
Cut straight across, sizing it to the wire ballerina base.
Curl the napkin around itself to make it fluffier
Cut tiny holes for the head and arms and delicately put the dress over the body.
Use a piece of small string and tie a bow around the ballerina's waist to tighten the dress.
Repeat with the other 2 ballerinas.
Step 6: Hanging It Up
Thread fishing line through the ballerina's head and hang it onto the hoop.
String beads into the fishing line and hang it in between the ballerinas if you prefer.
Step 7: Stringing the Mobile
Create a small hook with the wire to hang up your mobile
