DIY: How to Make a Butterfly Mobile

Pin It

Finding a beautiful mobile can be a challenge. I know I went through a tough time trying to find one that I liked. And in the end, I ended up settling for one that was just… eh.

But that’s because I didn’t have this easy butterfly chandelier tutorial!

Carina Gardner is a mom of two and a graphic designer. And she recently shared this beautiful butterfly mobile tutorial on her blog. Carina is even providing a Photoshop template, for those that need to hand cut their butterflies, and an Illustrator template, for those with a silhouette machine.

All you need to get this project done is a glue gun, clear string, sewing hoops and scrapbook or digital paper.

Happy crafting!
