Time for MOVING! Well, sort of. This month's theme is Moving! I decided to create something that moves!
I've been collecting bed springs hoping to be inspired and I was!!
1 Bed spring
1 inch circle punch
7/8" Cotton Ribbon
2 way glue pen
I began by punching out a lot of circles. I love this DSP but since it's thin, it's a little hard to punch a single sheet so i put 4 sheets together and just punched around the edges. I punched enough circles to complete 6 strands.
I cut about 18" lengths of linen thread and taped each end to the table. Then (leaving about 3 inches of thread at the top) I centered 10 circles under the thread. One at a time, I applied glue from the 2 way glue pen to the circle and placed another circle on top of the bottom circle and thread. Once all 6 strands were completed, I tied each strand to the bottom of the bed spring.
I measured around the widest part of the bed spring and cut a strip of sticky strip and stuck it to the plastic table I was working at. I pulled the protective red plastic and started to sort of 'zig zagged' the cotton ribbon along the strip. Once done, I then attached it to the bottom of the bed spring.
Here are a few more photos of the finished mobile.
I hope you liked my take on this "moving" theme!
