A Full Moon Mobile

Some people love the sea... I love the night sky and light of the moon. I've made myself a little mobile so that I might have a slice of that celestial magic inside.

I'm really pleased with how it came out and it was really quite simple. I even have a tutorial for you below, but first a  couple of notes about this project:

• Don't fret if you can't find the wooden shapes I used. You can absolutely cut your own from cardboard

• Really, really, really play around with balance to find where the best placement of your stars and moon, and also where to place the hanging wire.

• I 100% DO NOT recommend this project for above a baby crib. Bark, fishing line, glitter and tiny stars that might come loose may all pose a danger to little ones. Don't risk it!

• I only decorated the front of the pieces because I'll be hanging my mobile against a wall. If you want to suspend yours you may want to decorate both sides of your stars and moon.

Okay? Okay.

Here are all the things I used:
Wooden circle and stars
Old sheet music
Acrylic Paint
Nail file
Acrylic stars
Fishing line

And, finally, here's how it's made it:

If you make your own, please tag me when you're showing off. It really is the best compliment and it helps promote my little crafty mess making heaps and heaps. Plus, I just love to see what you're making ;)



  1. Your creations always make me happy. I look forward to your posts. You bring such happiness and I marvel at your talent and creativity. Thank you for sharing.

  2. Beautiful! This answers my questions about another of your posts. Thanks!

  3. I just stumbled upon your site via Hometalk and I'm absolutely breathless ~ I've never seen so many beautiful, fluttery, glittery, gossamer treasures in one place and the fact that some are DIY's that I might actually be able to stumble my way through is the icing on the cherry on the fluffy, buttercream frosted, strawberry filled Angelfood Cake of Deliciousness! I can't wait to read your whole blog. Many hugs, Tawny
