  2. Take opposing points of the outer diamond and using needle and thread attach with a small stitch.
  3. Take the next smallest diamonds points and join in the opposing direction using a stick.
  4. Repeat with smallest square
  5. Pierce one or two balls with knotted thread and attach to bottom of mobile.
