This month we are going to work with wire. I always like a challenge and this one certainly had me in a whimsical kind of mood. I chose to make a unique mobile with re-purposed wire hangers.
To see what my friends have made this month scroll down to the bottom of this post.
What I Used:
The How To:
I tied the twine onto four areas on the smaller wire circle. Further down I tied the twine onto four areas of the wicker plate charger, and finally again tied them onto the larger wire circle. So I would now have three tiers.
I then took thin pieces of twine and looped various large sized buttons through them. They were hung from the wicker plate charger like this.
At this point you may be wondering why I chose to use buttons when something else could have been so much prettier, and my answer is “it’s all about the upcycling folks”. I had just cleaned out my sewing box and had way too many buttons then a person has a right to have! It was time to use some of them up.
Finally on the top I took a flower and leaves, tied them together and hung this bouquet from the top of the mobile.
Here is the ribbon which was loosely wrapped around the lower wire circle. The ends were allowed to hang down, like tendrils.
And here it is, my one of a kind mobile.
One other challenge I placed on myself was to create this mobile art without spending a dime! And I did manage to achieve this thanks to my fun journey into the sewing box.
Go ahead, take a look at yours and see what you can up-cycle and re-purpose into art!
