Butterfly Mobile With Watercolor Paper


Great (crafty) minds think alike!

The girls and I were inspired by 
over at Childhood Magic's blog a few weeks ago.

on my bedside table for the past few weeks
and laughed out loud when I came across
her instructions for a Butterfly mobile
nearly identical to the one we had just made--too funny!!

We printed the templates here
and traced some of our own butterfly cookie cutters
on watercolor paper
then used crayons and watercolor
to make colorful butterflies.

Lots of leftover butterflies
(and kitties) -- I see more mobiles,
playroom decorations, and balancing butterflies
in our future.


Using supplies we had on hand
the girls and I made a mobile for "C"s room
to hang over her new big girl bed.

We used:
an embroidery hoop,
ribbon,
small hole punch,
and watercolor paper butterflies.


Tracing templates,
cookie cutters, and magnets. 


Watercolor butterflies.


We had to make some watercolor 
kitty cats too!


So simple but so pretty and sweet.

She loves it and so does her mama.
Sweet dreams sweet "C"!

P.S. Stay tuned for a giveaway and review
of Rae Grant's new book, Homemade Fun, this week!
We're cooking up some yummy fun in the kitchen.

fondly,
pink and green mama
