How to make a Post-it® Note mobile

Mobiles aren’t just for infants and toddlers. Creative Kidstuff shows us how older kids and adults can create one using Post-it® Products. It’s a great way to add some color to a classroom or a room at home. Be careful with the hot glue gun!


  • What you need:

    3 wood dowels (if you don’t have dowels, you can use sticks or chopsticks or pencils)
    fishing line or string
    1 pack of 3" x 3" Post-it® Super Sticky Notes in a variety of colors
    1 roll of Scotch® tape
    hot glue gun and glue sticks

    What you need

  • What to do:

    1. Take one Post-it® Super Sticky Note and fold it in half diagonally so it makes a triangle. Do this to three more Post-it® Notes, until you have four triangles that are sticky on one side. You can use any color combination you like.

  • 2. Take the four triangles and stick them together, one at a time. Make sure that you stick one sticky side to one non-sticky side.

  • 3. Before sticking the last two triangles together, cut a piece of fishing line and tape it to the non-sticky triangle. Then stick your last two sides together.

    5. Glue the three dowels together to form a triangle. Let the glue cool.

  • 6. Take each hanging part of your mobile, and tie it to the dowel. Vary the lengths at which they hang, so they don’t all bump into each other.
