This little summer craft could NOT get any easier:
I simply cut 5 pieces of pretty ribbon and tied them to a vintage Norgesglass (Norwegian Mason Jar) Band!
I used some of my Tilda ribbon for this craft, I love the combination of red and pink! I’m sure you could tie almost anything like this: lace, fabric scraps, crepe paper (indoors). If you don’t have a Mason jar band in your stash, a small embroidery hoop will do the job or even a piece of wire quickly shaped into a circle 😉
To hang the mobile I pierced two holes in the canning jar band and thread a piece of thick bakers twine through with my home made “needle” (a piece of about 10cm wire twisted around the twine, tightened with pliers), then tied knots to secure the twine.
You could hang your mobile with three or four strands of twine for a more balanced hanging, but I like how it dances in the light breeze entering my canopy 🙂
Happy 4th of July to everyone celebrating Independence Day! 🙂 🙂 🙂
