Step 1: You Will Need:
one embroidery hoop
fringe to cover the outer hoop
three 60 in. strands of ribbon
your pick of colored felt
Step 2: Separate Hoops...
and remove any stickers. Starting at the metal fastener, hot glue fringe along the perimeter of the hoop and let dry.
Step 3: Fold Ribbons in Half...
lengthwise and tie a knot two inches down from the fold. This will be the loop that you hang your mobile from.
Step 4: Arrange the Ribbons...
in the center of the inner hoop and hot glue the strands along the outside perimeter. Don’t worry about positioning the ribbons perfectly--the hearts will determine how the mobile hangs.
Step 5: Tighten the Outer and Inner Hoops Together...
to secure. Using the felt, cut out a variety of hearts. Be creative with the sizes and pattern choices!
Use a dab of hot glue to adhere double-sided hearts to the ribbons. Hold or hang the mobile by the loop when gluing the hearts to ensure that your mobile hangs evenly.
Let dry and enjoy!
