Project Instructions

Step 1 Wrap plain piece of wooden embroidery hoop (part without clasp) with glue and ribbon, covering entire hoop.

Step 2 Cut out several fish from light blue and blue fun foam using pattern (about fifteen of each color).

Step 3 Cut out seven pieces of seaweed from light green fun foam using pattern. Add Opal glitter glue to outline.

Step 4 Cut out several bubbles (about fifteen) from white fun foam using a 1" hole punch. Outline bubbles with Opal glitter glue, then let dry.

Step 5 Make fins on each side of fish with Opal glitter glue, one side at a time. Let dry.

Step 6 Add tail fins and eyes to each fish with Silver glitter glue, one side at a time. Let dry.

Step 7 Cut four pieces of blue stretch cord to desired length, about eighteen inches. Tie four pieces to hoop for mobile.

Step 8 Tie four 12" pieces of ribbon to opposite sides of hoop to make hanger. Tie one twenty-four-inch piece of blue stretch cord to center of ribbons.

Step 9 Glue fish, bubbles, and bubble beads in an alternating pattern to four blue cords. When attaching bubble beads, tie a knot after each bead, add a drop of glue.

Step 10 Glue seaweed to the end of each of the four pieces of stretch cord.
