Supplies you will need:

  • Stick or small log
  • String of your choice
  • Sprigs from a fir or pine tree, or even little pinecones
  • Scissor or clippers
  • Hot glue gun and glue

Instructions:

I started by laying out all my strings and cutting them to the the lengths I wanted. I decided to go with a random pattern, so I made every string a different length. I also chose different colors that I thought were festive, but you can use any string or twine that you like.

I made sure to leave enough length on my strings to tie them around the stick. I made sure it was a tight knot. My stick was pretty rough so the string was not sipping, but if you are using a smooth stick you may want to secure each string with a dot of hot glue on the back.

Next, I tied a little knot in the end of each string. This is just to give the hot glue a little more surface to cling onto. I trimmed the end of each knot so that there was no extra.

I used my clippers to trim sprigs from my fir tree in the shapes of miniature trees, so cute. Each tree just needs a little bead of glue on the very top.

I had to work quickly because the glue cools pretty fast when its such a small bead. I just held the knot of string firmly to the glue for about 30 seconds, and thats it!

I also tied a longer string to each end of my log so that I could hang it on my door. If you were setting this log on a window sill, you would not need a top string, so its just up to you how you want to display your mobile.
