“Twinkle, twinkle, little star, how I wonder what you are…” As a parent, your child is quite literally your shining star and they will always shine bright in your heart through the ups and downs of parenthood. At the tender age of one children are already full of energy and every day they bring light into your life, just like a star.

How To Create Your Mobile:
STEP ONE: Cut crepe paper into strips. From each color, we cut 8 strips at 24” and 6 strips at 18”.
STEP TWO: Glue four 24” same color strips to the inside of the interior hoop. Repeat, alternating colors, until the entire inside is covered.
STEP THREE: Glue three 18” same color strips to the outside of the interior hoop. Repeat, alternating colors, until the entire outside is covered.
STEP FOUR: Wrap exterior hoop with crepe paper.
STEP FIVE: Assemble hoops together leaving a slight lip on the inside.
STEP SIX: Trim skewer to fit inside lip. Set skewer atop interior hoop and glue to secure.
STEP SEVEN: Punch holes in cut-outs. Thread with monofilament and tie to skewer at desired heights. Hang the mobile from monofilament. (TIP: We trimmed the crescent moon from a worded cut-out.)
There you have it, your twinkling crepe paper mobiles. Add some flair for an unforgettable birthday to remember.
