Winter Craft – Make a snow cloud mobile. #BostikBlogger

Here’s quick and easy guide on how to Make a snow cloud mobile. Because you KNOW you want to try this. If I can do it, anyone can – and it’s SO pretty :)

What you need –

  • We used a Hama Mobile ring, but any circle base will do
  • Thread
  • White paper
  • scissors
  • glitter
  • glue & sticky pads

What you do –

1 – Create your snowflakes – I used four tea-plate-sized, and four mug-sized circles. Go wild with your snipping!

2 – Lay out some newspaper, spread out your snowflakes on it and then ‘paint’ them with glue (the easy White Glue from Bostik is brill for this – you can pretty much paint with it. As much glitter as you like – paint them all over with a paintbrush if you like; I decorated tips and lines for a subtle sparkle.

3 – Shake that glitter :)

4 – I used foam pads to attach lengths of thread to each snowflake – it sticks well and is far simpler than trying to use tape, and quicker than waiting for white glue to dry.

mobile-45 – Tie the snowflakes to your circle – I found the easiest way was to balance the circle off the edge of the surface, holding it in place with a can!

6 – Glue all the way round the edge of the circle – use the white glu again for this, it makes life so simple. You’re going to add pulls of cotton wool to the glue – I found it easiest to add the cotton wool here before I turned the circle to glue the other side.

mobile-87 – Once the cotton wool is on, paint some glue on the cotton wool (thinly, just a smear here and there) and roll it across the loose glitter still sitting on your newspaper. Tie your fixing threads to the ring – easiest to tie three different threads at even points, then tie them together in the centre, – hang it somewhere it’ll catch a draught and enjoy :)

A 70's child, I’ve been married for a Very Long Time, and appear to have made four children, and collected one large and useless dog along the way. I work, I have four children, I have a dog… ergo, I do not do dusting or ironing. I began LittleStuff back in (gulp) 2004. I like huge mugs of tea. And Coffee. And Cake. And a steaming cone of crispy fresh fluffy chips, smothered in salt and vinegar. #healthyeater When I grow up I am going to be quietly graceful, organised and wear lipstick every day. In the meantime I *may* have a slight butterfly-brain issue.
