LESSology Challenge #6: Creative inspiration from Julie Tucker-Wolek and Mandy Dodd! :)


Ready to check out Julie Tucker-Wolek and Mandy Dodd's awesome hanging mobiles? :)

Julie Tucker-Wolek

Hi everyone :) I actually wasn't going to do the hanging mobile I couldn't figure out an idea for this one...then one day I was looking through a catalog that came in my mail... and LOOKY there -----inspiration from a catalog :)

Of course, mine's not solar powered lol!! But I have some ornaments that my Mom painted for me several years ago... and I thought.. I can do something like this! So, I did! :)

This is what I started out with :)

The round box is a box I found at Michaels awhile ago - since the lid was missing - I got it on clearance for dirt cheap ;) Gotta love a bargain :) Before I put an paper on the round box, I poked holes in it to make room for my wires :)
And here is my mobile all put together :)

Can't wait to see what everyone creates for this challenge! :) ~~Julie :)

Doilies are so versatile! I had a few of these cotton doily tableclothes put away in a box (from my 80's days!)- so time recycle them and cut them up! I've used the white doilies from my piles here to create my
 Doily Hanging Mobile.

I also used my dd's cast away and long forgotten bead collection

Using a needle and thick thread, pick the beads you'd like...

Then thread through the centre of the doily

Add some more pretty beads on the top....

There... all put together!

Its so easy to put together, and hung from a plastic white ring was made in a short amount of time.
Thanks so much for looking
