This is a question I get asked a lot, so I wanted to write a quick blog post about it. Making a felt elephant mobile is actually pretty easy and only requires a few materials. You will need: felt, scissors, hot glue, string, and dowel rods.
To start, cut out your felt pieces. You will need two body pieces, two ear pieces, four leg pieces, and a trunk piece. Hot glue the trunk onto one of the body pieces.
Then hot glue the ears onto the top of the head. Next, take your four leg pieces and glue them onto the bottom of the body piece (two on each side).

To make a felt mobile, you will need:
-A piece of thick cardboard or cardstock
-Tape -Glue -A selection of felt in various colors and patterns

How Do You Make a Baby Mobile?
There are a few different ways that you can make a baby mobile. One way is to purchase a mobile kit from a store or online, which will come with all of the necessary materials and instructions. Another way is to repurpose an old toy or other object by attaching it to a string or piece of ribbon and suspending it from the ceiling.
If you are feeling creative, you could also make your own mobile out of paper, felt, or fabric scraps. When making your own mobile, it is important to keep in mind that babies should never be left unattended with a mobile, as there is potential for strangulation or choking hazards. Always place the mobile out of reach of baby’s hands and never leave them unsupervised while using it.
How Do You Hang Felt on a Mobile?
One of the best ways to add some personality to a room is by hanging a mobile. And one of the best materials you can use for a mobile is felt! Felt is lightweight, comes in lots of fun colors and patterns, and is easy to work with.
Here’s how to hang felt on a mobile: You’ll need: -Felt in various colors and/or patterns
-Scissors -Glue (I like using a hot glue gun) -A hanger or hoop for your mobile base
-Optional: pom poms, beads, sequins, etc. for decoration 1. Start by cutting out shapes from your felt. You can freehand these or use templates if you want more precise shapes.
Just make sure that all of your pieces are roughly the same size so that they’ll be balanced when hung up. 2. Once you have all of your shapes cut out, it’s time to start gluing them onto your hanger or hoop base. I like to start with the biggest pieces first and then fill in with smaller ones around them until the whole thing is covered.
But feel free to get creative here – there’s no wrong way to do this! 3. Once all of your pieces are glued on, it’s time to decorate if you want. This step is totally optional, but adding some pom poms or beads can really take your mobile up a notch!
4. And that’s it!
