I have a problem. It is this sad little girl...
who comes home from school and finds mobiles hanging in her room that are NOT for her! So I figured that it was about time to rectify this problem with a fun mobile just for my girl!
First I started with this lampshade that had been sitting in the basement collecting mold..
Then I found a friend to help me tear it to shreds..
This guy is always a willing participant!
Next I cut fabric into strips.
Then I wrapped the lampshade skeleton with the fabric and ribbon.
Here is the wrapped lampshade.
Then I hand cut and punched scrapbook butterflies.
Last I glued it all together with nylon thread and tulle.
Now I have a happy girl
and a happy lampshade!
Oh.. okay.. one more shot!
P.S. I made it to November's votation finals @
with my little Halloween House!
