I will admit, I am writing this post with a full belly. It’s the day after Thanksgiving and my belly is FULL! Why do we eat sooo much on holidays? It was worth it and I will do it again in about a month! My favorite part of the Thanksgiving meal is the stuffing and cranberry in a can. What is yours? Please do tell! Did anyone get any great deals today on Black Friday? I must admit, I didn’t get out at all today. I usually do but there was nothing I needed and I already have started my Christmas shopping. I did get my washer and dryer at Lowes Pre-Black Friday sale two years ago! Did any of you get any great deals today?
Today, I wanted to share with you how I did this baby mobile.
It really was a last-minute project and it was super easy. Here is what you need:
- Scrap book paper
- Hot glue
- a circle hoop. I used a torn apart lampshade but you could also use an embroidery hoop.
- Scrap fabric
- Button (optional)
- fishing line
- Scissors and something to trace circles. (I used a glass) You could also use a scrap book circle punch.
- I cut small strips of the fabric and wrapped the hoop, securing it with hot glue.
- I folded the scrap book paper in half and traced and cut as many circles as one folded sheet would allow.
- I cut fishing wire and looped it over the wrapped hoop.
- I took two circles and put a line of hot glue down the middle of one of them. I then placed the looped over fishing line in the hot glue. (since its looped over you have two pieces of fishing line the hot glue)
- I put a few dots of hot glue on another circle and sandwiched the fishing line in between. So each circle is two circles glued together with fishing wire in between.
- I did this all the way around.
- To hang it I tied three ribbons around the loop. I gathered them together and stitch
ed them together at the top
- I embellished it with a fabric covered button.
- The last thing I did was attached a little fishing line loop to hang it from. I did this by inserting a strand of fishing wire on the top of the ribbon with a needle. I did this with a few strands to make it sturdy. I tied them all together to make a small loop.
- To hang it the Hubs put small hook into a stud in the ceiling and voila.
Next time I will put more circles and I will probably hang it from the ceiling different. It was my first try and I thought I would share it with you because I learned a lot and cant wait to try it again. I love how it turned out in Avery’s room!
