Halloween DIY: Mobile
This project didn't turn out anything like I'd planned. This was my inspiration. Mine looks nothing like it, and I personally feel it looks awful. (Brad says differently). Anyway, this is my last DIY project for this Halloween, so here are some close ups for you.
First, the wood wreath form and the black fabric came from Dollar Tree.
There was no way I could really get it to mimic the tulle in the inspiration mobile, so instead I kind of draped the fabric around the wreath form, intending it to be a little...creepyish.
I used black cording to tie 6 long strands to the wreath form. For the ends, I took these wooden Halloween...things...that Shannon picked up (at Michaels?). I used tacky tape to stick them to black paper, punched a hole in the paper and attached an eyelet to tie the string through.
Then I punched out 24 circles from my scrap Halloween paper, and, using foam adhesive, stuck them together with the cord in the middle on each strand. Two double sided circles per strand.
I don't love it, but it does the job.
What do you think? Ugly? Or cool? You won't hurt my feelings if you say it's ugly. That's kinda how I feel about it.
