This DIY is near and dear to me because my grandmother loved making these easy DIY Santa Mobiles. In fact, she made many and gifted them to all of her friends, children, and grandchildren in the later years of her life.
A few years before she passed she gave me her original pattern and the leftover felt she had purchased. She said she could no longer make them and wanted to pass it along to me since I’m the crafty one in the family.
The pattern is worn, and the pattern is stained from years of use. It has thousands of pinholes in from where she used it over and over pinning it into felt to make the mobiles.
She loved creating these and gifting them to others.
I decided to share her craft with you and provide a newly updated pattern drawn from her original and then converted it into a PDF and SVG file.
I recently shared my process for making this DIY Santa Mobile on my Facebook page where I go live showing new craft ideas. If you don’t follow me there, I’d love to have you over there in our community. I am also sharing new craft ideas.
Below is the video I created showing my process. You can download the free pattern files from the Resource Library.
How to Make A Felt Santa Mobile
Once you have all the materials you will need to set up an area to create. The dining room table or your craft table is a great place. I made this in front of my Dreambox cabinet as it has all my supplies within the craft storage cabinet at an arms reach.
You can also check out my Dreambox Setup in this video to see how I have it set up!I absolutely love the Dreambox setup.It really makes crafting so much more fun!
- Needle and thread to stitch mobile together
- hot glue and a glue gun
Making The Santa Mobile
Once you have the entire pattern pieces cut you can begin by gluing the pieces together.
You need two of everything so that it can be seen from both sides except for the beard which is folded over. Start from the bottom gluing after you have threaded the thread through the top of the beard.
My video tutorial shows the process of threading the mobile together while gluing the pieces together front and back.
Once complete, hang with a hook on a chandelier or from a fixture in your home and enjoy.
