Looking for something original and personalized for your little one’s décor? Texture contrasts are becoming the new “in” thing – so why not go bold and put a mix of materials together for a great-looking effect? Today, I’ll show you a decorative piece that’s easy to create at a very low cost, which can blend in nicely with the existing décor: a homemade mobile fashioned from balls of knitting yarn.
1.To start off, I wound the yarn once around the Styrofoam ball, then tied a knot.
2.I then wound the yarn around the ball until it was covered completely.
3.Once I was done, I tied a firm knot to hold the yarn in place.
4.To hang the balls, I used yarn of the same color (a piece of fishing line could also have done the trick), which I tied into a knot around the ball. Finally, I attached the length of yarn to the ceiling with a finishing nail (you’ll find that it’s easier to hang the ball if you tie a small knot at the end of the piece of yarn or fishing line).
