Need:
  • Twig, 10-12 inches
  • String
  • Glue
  • Fender Washers (4)   1 1/2" wide
  • Streamers  (made from Ribbon or craft Foam sheets)
What To Do:
  1. Find a twig that is about 10-12 inches long.  Peel any loose bark from twig and rinse off any dirt.
  2. Tie a piece of string ( 18-20 " long) to both ends of the twig, to use as the hanging portion of your mobile.  Tie a loop in the exact center section of the string.
  3. Cut 4 streamers that are 18" long.  We cut thin streamers from craft foam.  Loop into center of washer and tie off.
  4. Cut 4 pieces of string, 12-14" long, and tie one end of each to the twig, spacing equally apart.
  5. Attach Washers to string, tying securely.  Alternate washers, so that one is higher, the next a little lower, etc.  But be sure that washers are close enough in length so that they will bump into each other in the wind.
  6. Dab a little of the glue onto each knot that you have tied and let dry thoroughly.   Trim ends of knots, leaving a tiny bit of a tail.
  7. Hang your Wind Mobile in a place where you can watch it and hear it.
