You may have seen our Mommy + Toddler Valentine Party on Style Me Pretty Living earlier this month. The guests made a feather mobile at our crafting station. We wanted to take you through the steps here so you can have a fun DIY to do at home!
Paint the top third of the feather, on both sides. Lay out to dry. Repeat twice (three coats total).
Take a length of string and wrap one side of it twenty times around the bottom section of feather. Knot it. Take the other side of the string and wrap it around the center of the driftwood branch ten times. Knot that end as well. Repeat with the four other feathers -- two to the left and two to the right -- varying the string length on each. Be sure to leave room at both ends of the driftwood branch.
Take a length of jute cord and wrap it a few times around the far left side of the driftwood. Knot it. Take the other side of the jute and measure it to a length you'd like to hang the finished mobile by. Wrap the cord around the far right side of the branch a few times. Knot it. You're done!
