Learn How To Make Your Own Boho Photo Mobile

WHY IT’S COOL

You can use anything lying around and make your mobile fit your own style. Bonus, you get to make room in your drawers and make your walls look fab.

INGREDIENTS

before

  • A twig/small branch
  • String
  • Tape
  • Scissors
  • Photos (bonus points for instax prints)
  • A collection of found things

Step 1: Cut That String

beforeCut a few pieces of string at random lengths.

Step 2: Tape It Together

beforeTape the backs of the photos to the string to fix them into place. Alternatively, you can use little clips to secure them to the string.

Oh, and make sure you leave enough string at the top to tie it to the twig in a minute.

Step 3: Tie It Up

beforeOkay, time to get these photo strings to the twig. Just tie each one to said twig and make a little knot to keep ’em in place.

Step 4: Add Stuff

beforeThis is the fun part. Grab some things that are lying around and get your embellish on!

Step 5: Hang Time

beforeTo get this baby on the wall, cut a length of string (about 1.5 times the length of your stick) and tie each end to your twig at opposite ends.

Nail a hook into the wall, and hang her up!

TAKING IT FURTHER

You love love, and you love it big time. So, go BIG this Valentine’s Day.

Print up a 3 foot x 4 foot Engineer Print to show your love BIG time.

Read along to see three fun ways to spread the love to friends, crushes and soulmates using photos!

 

1. Mailbox Surprise

gifts
Just fold up your Engineer Print, pop it in an envelope and mail it to your long-distance love.

Parabo Press’s EPs (as the cool kids call ‘em) are printed on extra thin paper, perfect for easy hanging and mailing too!

Yeah, your print will get creases in it, but we just love the idea of your giftee unfolding and unfolding and unfolding to reveal the biggest Valentine they’ve ever received.

 

2. Pin the Heart on the Babe

gifts
We may have spent a bit extra time on this part of the photoshoot in the Photojojo Office … this game is serious fun! Everyone gave it a go.

Print up a photo of your favorite heartthrob, cut out some hearts, procure a blindfold, give the first contestant a good spin, and watch them just try to find their way to that cutie’s heart.

It’s the perfect pastime for a Galentine’s Party or a cozy night in – just you, mood music, a box of chocolates and an EP of Michael B. Jordan.

 

3. Surprise! I love you!

gifts
Engineer Prints (available in color and B&W) are the perfect width to tape in your
standard door.

Tape your face looking into a room with an inward opening door to give your favorite someone a BIG surprise.

Just make sure your intended recipient is in the room when you stick up that print.
