MAKE IT / 49

Here’s a festive piece of decor to brighten up your valentine’s day. use this super easy to make mobile for an over the table centerpiece, or just a fun pop of love anywhere in your home!

what you’ll need:

• white hoola hoop
• bakers twine of your choice
• tape
• variety of sizes of honeycomb tissue balls (here) – I used 12 total in sizes 5”, 8”, and 12″

step 1 – trace and cut the tips of the honeycomb tissue balls to make each one the shape of a heart. start in the center of the half circle then cut at an angle all the way to the top of the ball.

step 2 – tape your bakers twine to the cardboard part of the tissue ball. keep it super long, so that you can cut it to your desired length once you attach it to the hoola hoop.

step 3 - tape your tissue ball/heart together so it will stay open.

step 4 - cut your bakers twine to the desired length in order to make it cascade in different lengths around the hoola hoop. tie each ball/heart to the hoola hoop.

step 5 - now you need to make the contraption that will hang your mobile to the ceiling. tie 3 pieces of bakers twine that are exactly the same length to your hoola hoop. measure out the distance between each piece of twine, so that each piece is tied equal distance apart. this will ensure that your mobile will hang balanced.

step 6 - screw in a screw hook to the ceiling.

step 7 - tie all three pieces of bakers twine together at the very top and hang it above your table!
