Neutral Decor Book Page Mobile

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend! Haley and I worked at the animal shelter on Saturday and we celebrated my great-nieces 4th birthday on Sunday. It’s so fun to watch how excited the little ones get!

I don’t have any instructions for you today, but this is very similar to the Falling Leaves Mobile I made a couple of weeks ago. I mentioned then that I thought it would be nice to add some crystals or bling to this, but instead I made a whole new one! 🙂

I cut out some leaf shapes from a book I picked up at a thrift store. I used 3 different shapes.

I painted a stick black and added a silver a black ribbon to the top to hang it from.

I strung clear pony beads and some silver beads onto fishing line. This took the most time. It wasn’t hard, just took the most time of the project.

The trick to keeping the beads from moving is to run the string or fishing line through the bead twice. This way you can move the bead to the position you want, but it won’t keep slipping. I actually ran the line through the silver ones three times, since they were heavier.

Once all the beads were strung, I put a little bit of glue on the top of the stick, and placed the line in the glue-very carefully!

I added more line and then glued the leaves on with just a little dot of glue.

And that’s it! Now I have a neutral mobile I can use all year long! Plus a little bling!

I hope you all have a safe Halloween!
