Sometimes or all the time you need a little whimsy in your day…
Enter: The feather ornament mobile.
There’s just something so magical about it…
feathers dancing lazily through the air, suspended within magical, unpoppable bubbles. Le sigh.
– String (I’m obsessed with this black & white baker’s twine!)
– Light-colored thread or fishing line
– Clear ornaments (I realize they might be hard to come by now – but maybe you can “borrow” a few from the holiday decorations…they won’t even know.)
STEP 1: Fasten the sticks into a Blair Witch-like triangle, securing each corner with string.
Step 2: Remove the top of the ornament & insert the lovely feather of your liking into the ornament, pointy side first. Then, put the little top back on. Repeat.
Step 3: Using the light-colored thread or fishing line, attach each ornament to the stick base. In order to keep a balanced mobile, just make sure to spread them evenly around the base.
Step 4: Take 3 more pieces of string & create a tri-pod, tying one end of each piece of string to a corner of the stick base, and the other ends into a single knot in the center. Wrap the central knot around the nail/hook/etc. you’re using to hang the mobile.
That’s it, my crafty comrade! Enjoy!
