Summer has officially arrived, and we have fruit on the brain! I can’t think of a better way to fill a warm, sunny day than with a colorful fruit craft, and this paper fruit mobile is the MOST darling! These fruity cuties are guaranteed to brighten up any space and inspire miles of summer smiles, and the free printable makes this lovely summer decoration a breeze!
For a full afternoon of fruit-themed fun, cool off while you craft with some delicious (and healthy!) homemade Rainbow Fruit Ice Pops. Or add a collection of DIY paper fruit fans to perfectly compliment your mobile!
PAPER FRUIT MOBILE – MATERIALS:
Step 1: Print and cut out our free paper fruit printable.
Step 2: Cut pieces of string to varying lengths. Tie onto a stick or craft dowel, leaving a 1-2″ space between each piece of string.
Step 3: Use a dot of craft glue or piece of tape to affix the ends of your strings to each piece of fruit.
Step 4: For the final step, cut a long piece of yarn, decorative string or twine and tie each end to the ends of your stick or dowel rod, then hang from the middle. You can tie on ribbons or pompoms for a little added fun!
This colorful mobile looks so cute as a DIY nursery decoration or simple summer hanging. And it’s a tootie-fruity easy addition to a summer BBQ or fruit-themed party. Fruit lovers will also have fun making some quick fruit fingerprint art or a summery-sweet set of DIY fruit magnets!
