DIY hanging stick mobile

Here’s a fun DIY for a rainy weekend: create a natural hanging mobile. They’re fun to make because they leave lots of room for creativity as far as what can be hung to the branch. They remind me of dream catchers but with a witchy twist.

What you need:
-A branch
-(Faux) suede cord
-Metal wire for jewelry making
-Fishing rope
-Stones, crystals, charms or any other type of pendant

Here I used a mossy branch but I also tried this DIY with a smooth branch which I previously painted. (I wanted to incorporate our DIY sticks of color to this hanging branch project)

Start off by wrapping the metal wire around your pendants to create their hooks.

Then cut a piece of suede cord for each pendant. Attach a pendant to the end of each cord.

Attach the pendant cords to the branch. You’re almost done!
