Pinterest Project: Ribbon Mobile

I think the second thing I ever pinned on Pinterest was a Ribbon Mobile from Between U & Me. Yep, over a year ago and up until this week it was another unaccomplished project. But the whole Pinterest challenge from Young House Love got me in the mood to create this…

ribbon-mobile-craftI finally got my act together and finished my Ribbon Mobile for my daughter’s bedroom. Pretty cute, right? And it only took a couple minutes (and a couple bucks) to complete.

  • Ribbon in multi colors
  • Embroidery hoop (only the inside needed)
  • White embroidery thread
  • Scissors

cut for ribbon mobileI cut the ribbon into about 24 – 28 inch lengths. I didn’t really worry about being exact since I didn’t want a straight bottom edge.

Once completed, you can hang it with your thread (I just tied the thread around the hoop in three separate spots then brought them together to tie the mobile from the ceiling).

and less than $10 for the entire ribbon mobile!

    Haha, how fun! I just did something similar the last weekend, after having pinned such projects for a long time… Mine is now covering my old boring ceiling lamp :)
    Your’s have a great combination of colors – gorgeous!

    Oh my gosh that is the perfect little touch to your daughter’s room. Love it and its simplicity. Found your link on BNOP and pinning.

    Have a great week!

    I hope to make this for my Granddaughter and maybe add some sparkly stars at the odd end of a ribbon. She loves everything *Princess* or >Fairy<. Thank-you, so much.

    What size hoop did you use? I’ve been planning to make one of these for my daughter and have been stuck on finding a hoop that was big enough.
