Spiral Mobiles DIY

These spiral mobiles are one of my favorite projects because they are so easy. You can make them in any color palate and they instantly make a party. See below how to make them!

Materials: Paper, scissors

Step 1: Use a plate, cup, or other perfect circle to trace and cut out a circle on your paper.
Step 2: Starting at the edge of your paper circle, carefully begin cutting along the edge of the paper (about .5″ an inch in from the edge.)
Step 3: Follow along the edge of the circle and continue cutting in a spiral until you reach the center.
Step 4: Pull the spiral apart so it creates a long twist. (One piece of paper will usually reach for 4-6 feet depending on how much you pull it apart.)
Step 5: Place a piece of tape on the center of the spiral and gently hang from the ceiling. I like to hang them from the center because they make softer twists.

    Wow! This blog looks just like my old one! It’s on a completely different
    topic but it has pretty much the same layout and design.
    Great choice of colors!
