Bring back summer with this pretty homemade cloud mobile

Dream of blue skies and sunshine with this beautiful handmade cloud mobile. You don’t have to be a craft expert to make this, it’s easy with our step-by-step guide

You will need


  • White card
  • Fishing wire
  • Skewers
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Glue

Step 1 

Each cloud has four sides. Cut out four cloud shapes that are exactly the same size. Fold each one in half.

Step 2 

Take two clouds and glue them together so that only one side on each is stuck down. Repeat for the other two cloud cut-outs.

Step 3 

Secure a long piece of fishing wire to the centre of one piece with glue.

Step 4 

Place each pair of cloud cut outs back to back and glue together so that the wire is sticking out of the top. Repeat so you have at least five full clouds – each with four sides.

Step 5 

Take two skewers and tie together in the centre to create a ‘X’ shape. Hang one cloud from each end and one from the centre. A hot glue gun is the best way to keep the ties at the top in place.

Step 6

Hang over a bed or at a window.

Top tip: Use thick card that will keep it’s shape. We chose a textured one for added effect.
