How to Make

  1. Cut a strip of twine approximately 30 centimetres long and tie one end to the small stalk at the bottom of a wooden leaf.
  2. Tie the other end of the twine to a twisted willow stick.
  3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 with a range of different wooden leaves, altering the length of the twine each time so they all hang at different levels.
  4. Cut another piece of twine approximately 40 centimetres long and tie each end to the ends of the twisted willow stick for the mobile to hang from.

Top Tip

Tie everything with a double knot to prevent the mobile from falling apart.
