How to Make a Halloween Paper Mobile
Use the templates below to cut these simple shapes from heavyweight paper or card to make a happy Halloween hanging decoration. Very effective outside as it dances in the wind!
Use the shapes as a guide or enlarge them and print them out to use as templates. Once cut out, bring the points that are marked with crosses to meet and staple together.
For the pumpkin, cut 7 strips of orange paper – 1 10cm long, 2 12cm long, 2 14 cm long and 2 16cm long. Fix all the strips together at one end with a staple with the longest strips on the outside and the shortest one sandwiched in the middle. Then bring all the loose ends up to meet each other and fix with another staple and attach the pumpkin leaves.
The Starmist thread makes a strong and glittery way of suspending the shapes, while gnarled and twisted sticks make great witchy crosspieces to suspend your halloween shapes from!
