Make Something Monday: Matthew's Mobile

Make Something Monday

I can't believe another week has already passed and Monday is almost over again. This week for Make Something Monday, the meme started by Jolly Mom and Go Graham Go, I've made a mobile for my son, Matthew.

I folded five origami cranes and wrapped four various sized dowels all in different colors of paper and ribbon. Also with the thinnest dowel there is a piece of tying wire to add strength. Everything was wrapped in cord and glued and strung together. The birds hang using fishing line.

Here is a picture of the finished mobile:



I apologize for not taking pictures as I worked on it.
