Time for another group post with some of my blogger friends. This month we decided to do $5 crafts, so each of the projects featured will cost you $5 or less. Of course that meant a trip to the dollar store! Today we're making a neon mobile from dollar store Hawaiian leis.
Embroidery hoop inner ring...$2-3 dollars (also, use a coupon or check thrift stores)
Hot glue and yarn...on hand
Do this step so that the lei doesn't fall apart as you cut it! Separate two flowers and put a drop of hot glue at the base of each flower. When the glue cools you can cut the string between. Repeat to cut each lei into 4 pieces.
Glue one color around the hoop at 4 points. Then add the other color in the spaces left.
Tie two pieces of yarn so they cross in the middle of the hoop. Then tie another piece right in the middle so you can hang it.
Then you can hang it from the ceiling for a cute party decoration or great addition to a neon nursery.
Now hop on over to see what everyone else did with $5.
