I made a simple mobile with different colored ribbon. I cut the ribbon into varying lengths and used my glue gun to secure them around the purse handle.
Then I used some pretty lace ribbon to go around the rim and cover any imperfections. It was pretty simple! The only thing that took any sort of time was securing the fishing line to the top so that the mobile hangs level. I wish I could give you some tips on this, but honestly it was just a lot of trial and error on my part. I'd recommend measuring first instead of thinking you can just "wing it" like I did.
But I eventually got it to work, and now it's adding some color to my still unfinished living room!
As always, we worked on our crafts while drinking wine and eating lots of snacks. Also, everyone makes goofy faces in their pictures. Whitney was pretending to be mad at me and Katelyn was really really happy that she finally figured out how to make something with her Origami paper.
I also made another craft using the purse handles while I was there. I'm going to share the actual tutorial in another blog post this week, but here's a little preview.
Finally, for our book club we discussed The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. I know from Instagram and Twitter that many of you have read it, so I'd love to hear what you thought!
