Bird Mobile

I have always been in love with mobiles... hanging art that displays a purpose of balance. Recently I saw a hand-crafted mobile made from an old embroidery hoop as a base. It game me a great place to start.

I used loads of my ribbon scraps to load up the 10" hoop base, but first I wrapped it in gauzy tulle so the two hoop pieces were now one.

I created the birds from fabric scraps, beads and buttons...

Attached the birds to ribbon strips...

Overall, my first attempt will certainly cheer up any corner, but I think I'll try another one using three dimensional birds or hearts. It looks darling in my office, but my daughters are arguing over who gets it for their room. I guess that's a good sign♥
