LESSology Hanging Mobile

Please go here for my Advent calendar give away. You have 6 more days to enter.


Hi Everyone, We have a wonderful challenge for you at LESSology this week. The challenge is to create a hanging mobile. Our sponsor this week is Nikki Sivils Scrapbooker




I really have fun with this challenge.
This is what I started with. It is an old rusty wreath I found at our cabin.


I took the geese off and painted white. Then I used an old necklace, that I got at a yard sale for $.25, to hang it. 
Next I created stars to have from it.




Here is the mobile I created.


The stars are created by folding five squares in half twice and one angle fold. Pull the angle folds in so it looks like a square. Then glue them together.


Here is a video to show you how.





I hope you will join use at LESSology this week for our fun challenge.
Thanks for stopping,
