It’s summer beach season, and we couldn’t be more excited to help you incorporate those coastal vibes into your home decor. This sweet and simple Layered Paper Beach Finds Mobile lets you bring all the treasures of the seaside into your home — sand not included! Pair your mobile with our other beachy projects to create the perfect summer retreat.
Because of the small paper details, we recommend using a cutting machine for this DIY craft. You can also use detail scissors to cut the pieces by hand. Ready to get started on this beginner-friendly craft? Scroll down to our list of materials and tools!

Seas the Day
With its natural wood beads, wood arch frame, and cardstock cutouts in contrasting shades of pink, this beach mobile urges you to relax. Watch the familiar shapes of coral, sea shells, starfish, and clams idly spin as you imagine the crash of the waves. Mobiles usually bring to mind nursery decor, but we think this would look lovely hanging in front of a window.
These are our favorite beach shapes but feel free to let your imagination run free as you build your beach finds mobile. How cute would a little fish friend or mermaid be spinning along with your other treasures? The color palette is also super customizable. I can just as clearly see this design in cool shades of blue or soothing hues of green. However you style it, please remember to share your photos with us on our crafters community page or on Instagram with the hashtag #MadeWithLia.
