Don’t you just love driftwood? I made this mobile from a great piece of twisty river driftwood, straight out of the Missouri River, and a collection of glass pieces from old broken mobiles. Three old mobiles to be exact…plus some oval and rectangular chunks of colored glass and a few flat marbles.
The mobile was my first official project in my new garage work space.
I used fishing line to hang the glass pieces and made double knots to keep the pieces secure. Then to make sure that the knots didn’t loosen up I used a drop of super glue on each knot.
The glass makes a very nice tinkling when the wind blows…
The colors are mostly blues, with some clear and some frosted glass…
I drilled seven holes in the driftwood and tied knots around the ovalish shapes to keep the knots from pulling back through the wood.
The mobile isn’t entirely symmetrical but I like that part of it. It balances well and hangs nicely.
The mobile got two paws up from Baby Kitty…so I guess it’s OK!
I might be linking up to these great parties!
