Fall Branch Paint-chip Mobile

YAY!! FALL!!! This past week it’s FELT like fall here in Texas!  It’s been a welcome change to the record heat here.  It’s seems like we moved from Phoenix back to Houston and brought the Phoenix weather with us.  At least that’s what our family told us!!  

ANYWHO, this is a quick tutorial on how to make your own FREE tree branch fall mobile. 

Gather a bunch of paint-chip samples in pretty fall colors.  It’s always helps IF they are specially named for fall!

Now, I don’t have a stencil or a paper punch so I traced some leaves that I found online.

Cut out the leaves.  Make sure you have two for each side, if you have one sided paint-chip samples.
I cut some twine and strung on a few beads.

Then I hot glued the twine to the leaves and the leaves together.  Then I strung them up on the branch.  I played around a little bit with location, until I was happy with it.  Then I strung up the branch with 3 pieces of twine.  I positioned to where I wanted it and then tied a loop to hang it from.

Make sure you pan down to take a picture of your little princess who is posing for you!

I really love it, but….I didn’t like how white the twine looked.  My hubby gave me the great idea of coloring the twine with a wet teabag.  It worked great! But, I HIGHLY reccomend that you dye the twine BEFORE you string it all up.  My arms and shirt are dyed as well! 

See, much better right!?

Make sure you get another picture of your pretty posing princess!!

Thanks for stopping by!!

  2. Cute!!! TYFS!!! I love 'simple' fall ideas! A tip for those who have Cricuts, the paint samples can be cut on it, just have to bring out the blade more and increase the pressure!craftyzoowithmonkeys.blogspot.com
