This pretty mobile represents the bright stars up in the sky that shine down on each and every one of us at night time. They twinkle and glisten like magic as they float around in outer space.

  • Step 1Paint two pieces of driftwood with PVA glue. While the glue is still tacky cover with glitter. Allow to dry.
  • Step 2Join the two pieces of driftwood in the centre using metallic yarn to create a cross shape. This will become the main structure to hang all of your mobile components from.
  • Step 3Join the two pieces of driftwood in the centre using metallic yarn to create a cross shape. This will become the main structure to hang all of your mobile components from.
