Butterfly Mobile Tutorial

Get ready for lots of pictures! As always, if you have any questions please leave them in the comments. Just a few notes as we go. I used the Silhouette machine that cut all the butterflies out for me...so easy that way. The Pottery Barn Kids butterfly mobile has pink leaves draped on it. You can find something similar in SugarpinkBoutique: found here.
The metal hoop I used is a Darice Brass Metal Ring (12"): link here.
The paper piercer is from Making Memories: link here.



Cut out about 12 strands from your thread - about 2 1/2 feet long. Longer or shorter depending on how you would like you mobile to look. You can also make more or less strands of butterflies depending on how "full" you want your mobile to be.







Now you can temporarily hang up your mobile and evenly tie your butterfly strings around. Trim the extra string off the top. If you desire, you can place a drop of glue on the strings and the metal so they won't move around.

Now hang from the ceiling!

  2. Love it! I decided a while ago that if I ever have a baby girl, she's getting a butterfly nursery. I'm puting this idea in my "keep" file. Thanks!

  16. THANK YOU for posting this tutorial! My friend recently got the silhouette and I was browsing their site to see what it was all about when I found your pic! I have a Sizzix Big Shot with a butterfly die from Stampin' Up and I saw a similar mobile on etsy. I figured I could make it but the tutorial made it seem that much easier!! Thanks again!

  20. Any ideas on how to make the butterflies without the machine, maybe a stamp? Cant find anything appropriate :(

    ReplyDelete
  21. I posted a similar tutorial for a butterfly mobile and butterfly lamp last year. Yours looks great ;) Good work!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I love this! I'm gonna make a similar one for my friend. :)

  23. IDK if anyone has mentioned it, but you can use a thick piece of fun foam from Michael's to put under your object that you are piercing. This is lovely, and your little girl is beautiful (if that is your own)

    ReplyDelete
  24. This is beautiful! I am halfway finished making one right now. By the way, I had the silhouette cut a small circle in the center of each butterfly rather than needing to use a punch. It's worked out perfectly!
