Paper Leaf Mobile

Last year Brody and I made a fall mobile and I want to share it again with you this year. It didn't take long to make and Brody had a fun time helping me make it.
The beauty of fall decor is that you can leave it up longer than Halloween decorations as it blends in with the Thanksgiving holiday. 
2 pieces of 2" x 11" cardstock
Glue Dots® (Craft Glue Dots® and Mini Glue Dots®)
7-11 pieces of string (I used fishing line) 19"- 21" long
An assortment of colored paper leaves

Lets get started.

First I made a paper circle by taking the two strips of paper and placed two Craft Glue Dots® on one end of each strip of paper and pressed them to the end of the other strip without Glue Dots®.
Using a whole punch, cut three evenly spaced holes in the circle. 
Next take three pieces of string and tie each one to the holes.
Once all three strings are attached tie them together near the free end. 
This is where you will hang your mobile.
Now you will hang your remaining pieces of string by  placing a Craft Glue Dots® on the inside of the circle and pressing the end of your string to it.

Next place a Mini Glue Dot® on each leaf and press to the string. 
Repeat until your leaf mobile is full.
Hang mobile and enjoy.
