Christmas Mobile Craft

star mobile

This Christmas mobile is a cheap and easy Christmas craft.


Wooden hanger child size

Nylon knitting ribbon (white and red)

Green wool (I used crimple wood for a bit of visual texture)

Star Template (click for PDF File)

Crayons (or pencils)



Laminator (optional)


1. Wind the red ribbon around the coat hanger until all covered.  Tie a knot at the end to secure.

2. Wind the white ribbon around the coat hanger allowing the red to show through in a thick swirl.  Tie a knot at the end to secure.

3. Cut four lengths of the wool and attach, evenly spaced, to the coat hanger.

4. On the wrong side of the star template, use crayons or pencils to cover the entire page.  On the other side, use a little glue and cover with glitter.

5. Laminate stars (if desired) and cut out around the black guide line.

6. Punch a hole in the top of the stars and attach to the bottom of the green wool.

7. Hang.

    This was cool for the little man too! We hung the stars on fishing line and hung them from all over the ceiling. Then put a moon in the middle. Very cool room now!
