DIY: Travel Paper Plane Mobile

My travel paper plane mobile was featured on Ruffled blog yesterday… one of my favorite wedding blogs! I entered it into their DIY contest. The main rule: it has to incorporate something old. Being engaged, I’m constantly thinking of wedding decor ideas and figured I might as well put that brainstorming to use (and maybe win some moolah).

This airplane mobile is a great alternative to a centerpiece at a wedding. For a dramatic look, candles may be placed on the table under the mobile to cast some light on it [just not close enough to burn!]. A collection of mobiles can be used as a decoration elsewhere, such as above the guest book or cake table. This is a clever way to decorate for a travel-themed wedding.


What you will need:

-old maps (I picked up a huge falling apart atlas at a thrift store for 50 cents)
-branches (from my backyard)
-several ribbons (local fabric store)
-pliable metal wire (local craft store)



Step 1: Measure and cut the map into 10-15 squares measuring 4×6” and 5×7”.

Step 2: Fold each map square into a basic paper airplane.

Step 3: Cut string into varying lengths and tape one end in the middle of each airplane. Tape airplane wings shut with double stick tape for a neater look.

Step 4: Gather branches into a snowflake shape to make mobile. The middle of each branch should be overlapping in the center. Take a piece of wire and wrap it around the middle of branches going in and around each branch until structure feels secure.

Step 5: Tie ribbons to the center of mobile and tie airplane strings from branches. Be sure to nicely trim ends of ribbons.

Step 6: Attach string to mobile and hang from ceiling.

Actually, I still have this mobile hanging in my living room! I don’t really want to take it down yet. And it matches perfectly with my teal picture frame wall. You can’t tell it’s meant to be wedding decor, right?

I just photographed another tutorial for a cute wedding cake topper that involves a vintage tea cup. Will share soon.
