Upcycled Vintage Stacking Ring Mobile

By: Victoria Hannley from
Upcycle Vintage Stacking Ring Mobile

"A favorite childhood toy - Fisher Price stacking rings - has been played with by my young children but has started showing its 30-some years. The rings were splitting and the cone suffered a broken chunk during some wild swordplay. Instead of tossing it out (along with those memories), I turned it into a playroom mobile. Such a mobile can be made with any old and broken toys!"

Materials List

  • Stacking ring toy
  • Fishing line
  • Craft glue
  • Drill and thin drill bit
  • Sewing needle


  1. Make 2-3 knots in one end of the fishing line and insert this end into each individual stacking ring.

  2. Using thin drill bit, create holes in base of stacking tower. Goal is to have the drill bit go all the way through the base.

  3. Thread the fishing line through a sewing needle, and thread each ring through the holes made in the base.

  4. Once through the base, tie 3-4 knots in each fishing line, staggering the lengths of the rings.

  5. Drill one more hole in the area where the stacking ring cone screws into the base.

  6. Make a hanging loop out of fishing line and insert your loop into this hole. Adjust to fit the space where it will be hung.

  7. Using craft glue, glue the ball that sits atop the cone as it will be hung upside down.

  8. Once dry, hang and enjoy. So fun!
