How to Make

  1. Firstly, paint a stick white. This will need a few coats, then set aside to dry.
  2. Then, using the template draw and cut out 4 hearts and 5 lips from water colour paper.
  3. Fill a tray with shaving foam, filling enough area to cover the watercolour paper shapes.
  4. Squirt red and pink ready-mix paint for the lips and purple and pink paint on top of the shaving foam for the hearts.
  5. Swirl it using a paint brush.
  6. Place the cut-out watercolour paper into the foam and paint mixture. Slightly push down to ensure all areas of the watercolour paper are covered.
  7. Take the paper out of the tray and scrape off the excess foam and paint with a squeegee or a ruler.
  8. Repeat until all the heart and lip shapes are marbled.
  9. Create 3 tassels from red wool using the steps below.
  10. Then, cut 4 lengths of red wool.
  11. Tie your lengths of red wool to the stick. One of the lengths of wool should be tied to both ends of the stick so the mobile can be hung.
  12. Stick a lip shape to the wool using sticky tape.
  13. Then thread 3 beads underneath the lips and tie a knot. Continue to alternate lips and hearts to create a pattern.
  14. Lastly, tie your tassels to the end of the mobile.


  1. Begin by wrapping red wool around your hand. Aim for15 wraps but you can always do lots more.
  2. Pull the wool off your hand, then thread a length of wool through the top loops. Then pull the two ends together and tie a knot.
  3. Carefully cut along the loops at the bottom.
  4. Take another piece of thread and wrap about one third of the way down and secure tightly with a knot.
  5. Trim the tassel.
