Hey, guys! Remember me? Sorry for ditching out last week. I just decided to take a few days to re-group, and get my attitude in check. I apologize for being so negative lately. That clearly hasn't helped me with much at all, so I'm just going to dive back into Rags and Roses with the same enthusiasm I had when I first started blogging. Thanks for sticking around!
Okay, let's get to this DIY mobile. I was searching on Pinterest for different ways to display photos, and I stumbled upon a few banner and mobile options. So, I thought it would be kind of cool to put the two together in one project. I like that you can switch out the photos and scrap paper, too. Here's how I made it!
Supplies: Three embroidery hoops, acrylic paint, paint brushes, yarn, an adhesive wall hook (I used the cheap off-brand kind and it worked great!), clothes pins, and pictures or scrapbook paper to decorate.
Paint your fabric hoops any color that you'd like to, and set aside to dry.
Cut your paper and photos to your preferred size so that they are ready to be displayed.
Stick your hook to the ceiling, and press it firmly in place. Tie three long strings of yarn to your largest fabric hoop in a triangulated position. Bring the three pieces together at the top to make a knot. Place the hoop onto your hook using the knot you created. Tie your other two hoops onto each other in descending order by size. Make sure they all hang evenly, readjust if needed, and cut off the access string.
Using the clothes pins, arrange your photos, postcards, or paper any which way you please!
I really liked the finished product on this one. It's be really easy to swap out new photos, or even do seasonal/holiday displays. I'm already dreaming up a Halloween mobile. Because, ya know, that's what normal twenty-somethings look forward to. You could even paint your clothes pins for an extra pop of color! I hope this gives you all some inspo on showing off your favorite pictures. Think outside the frame!
