Here’s a fun detail from our End of Summer Party! We loved the Paper Mobile by Oh Happy Day and thought it would add the perfect touch to our bright outdoor set up.
For step-by-step instructions, check out the paper mobile link above, or take a look at our Circle Paper Garland blog post! I will say, however, that the strips of paper are a bit harder to sew together than the circle garland was. I found that adjusting the needle thread tension on my sewing machine to a lower setting while using a straight stitch helped a lot! If you find your thread snapping or getting caught, try loosening your stitch and tension before calling it quits. Or call it quits and make the circle garland instead (can you tell we’re partial to the circle garland? It might just be the quickest sewing project ever.)!
