One of the advantages of a mobile decoration is that it can be gifted to a person of any age. Children love such amusing and colourful gifts, while adults can use it as a hanging anywhere in the house.

The things you need:

  1. Card sheet of different colours
  2. Cord
  3. Broomsticks
  4. Sketch pens
  5. Scissors
  6. Adhesive

Step 1: Fold the card sheet into half. Draw any shape you want, like the moon, sun, flower or fish. Cut out all of them. You will have two identical pieces each of all four drawings.

Step 2: Stick sun to sun, fish to fish, moon to moon and flower to flower. This will make the pieces a little heavy and provide stability to the mobile. Colour both sides of these cutouts.

Step 3: Make a hole in the four decorations and tie them to cords of varying lengths.

Step 4: Take two broomsticks of equal length and tie them together from the centre with the cord. Make a loop at the other end of the cord.

Step 5: Tie the cord with the fish, moon, sun and flower to the four ends of the broomstick frame.

The mobile is ready. You can hang it anywhere in the house. If you want to make a wind chime then just put four bells at the end of the cord.
