As I mentioned in my cocktail umbrella wreath post, we had a rainbow themed party for my son. One of the decorations that we did for the dining room, was to spice up our light fixture with a star mobile. This is basically the same craft that I did in my Butterfly Mobile tutorial, but I made it a little more pro this time because it wasn’t just a whim.
Here’s what I used:
- Craft foam in various colours
- elmer’s glitter glue
- crayola glitter glue
- vinyl thread
I cut out craft foam stars in 6 different colours and had my kids decorate them using glitter glue. I then used clear vinyl thread to attach them to the light fixture. I used a needle to get the thread through the foam and tied a double knot so the thread wouldn’t pull all the way through. I then tied the other end to the light fixture. This gave the illusion that the stars were just hanging in mid air, which definitely impressed the 5 and under crowd 🙂
