We were finally able to finish up Liv's room recently, and the ribbon mobile was one of these last projects we had to complete. I love the look of the mobile as it ties in all the colors and adds a bit of whimsy. Not to mention it's so pretty to look at...and easy to create.
First gather your supplies: ribbon, scissors and the inner circle of an embroidery hoop (pick what size works best for your space).
I then decided the pattern of the ribbon, cut and divided them up into 8 equal parts.
To tie the ribbon on the hoop, follow the steps above. Fold the ribbon in half, and pull the tails around the hoop and through the ribbon. Pull tight, and finish with a knot so the ribbon stays in place. Repeat on all strands until hoop is covered.
When complete, find the center and tie a long ribbon for hanging. Make sure to use a ceiling hook so it anchors safely into the ceiling.
