More Hanging Mobiles Made out of Cardboard and Fabric

Craft:


Unfortunately Caity is snowed under again with work this week… so here’s another little post from me!

As you know, I love hanging mobiles! They fit into any space and look so funky. I’ve made quite a few over the time of our blog!

… and a mobile made out of cardboard and fabric.

Well, this is another version of my Simple Hanging Mobile. I completed it recently for an engagement present for some friends. 

These mobiles are really, really easy to make. All you’ll need is some cardboard (use an old box), scraps of fabric, scissors, spray glue, string and some hardy sticky tape.

You’ll find all the directions listed here. Try one out!

Happy making!

Rustic Poplar-Stick Wall Hanging

Craft/Artwork:


I made this Stick Wall Hanging some time ago, but have used it over and over again. I originally made it because I wanted something to decorate my walls that looked really modern and rustic, yet wasn’t going to cost me anything. 

It re-surfaced the other day because I was fishing around for something to put up on a wall in our spare cottage. And it looks fantastic on a white wall!

This is a really easy project and you can’t go wrong with any of it! I just collected some dead sticks from a poplar tree (usually they’re nice and straight-ish and long), and did a rough arrangement with them, lying them on the ground. Then I got out my tie-wire and wound it around them so they stayed in place.
 
 
I added some more wire for a hanger, and then put it up!
 
 
You can sort of arrange the sticks once it’s on the wall too. Anything looks good, so don’t worry about getting the sticks to look “perfect”.

Happy making!
