This week in keeping with our #FolksyFriday theme, the lovely people at CICO have offered us 3 copies of this beautiful Mobile Art Book, it’s a new book by the very talented designer Clare Youngs and we think that you will all love it.

The book has instructions to make 35 inspiring and simple mobiles to decorate your home, most of which can be completed in an afternoon! These include a delicate seed-pod mobile that will spin gently in your kitchen, a gorgeous quilled paper snowflake mobile for Christmas, and our favourite, hanging teepees made from left-over wrapping paper. There’s even a tutorial for macrame hanging planters!

The mobiles all come with easy to follow, step-by-step instructions and use a variety of crafting techniques and materials, from stencils, papercutting and origami to himmeli sculptures made from drinking straws and simple hand-sewing. If you’d like to find out more head over to the CICO website.

In this video tutorial taken from a project in the book, you can learn how to make an origami swan mobile.
