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!
This is so pretty. I love the blues of the glass with the driftwood.
Oh I love this. It looks great and would sound so nice with a slight wind passing through it.
I really need to learn how to work with glass, I find/see so many things with it that I love and want to make.
I was fantasizing about chimes today. Chimes that covered the length of my imaginary porch. Yours are so pretty!
So very pretty!
Great job! You are so creative! I love the sound of wind chimes. We have been experiencing a lot of windy days and I am enjoying the sound of my Scarlet Macaw wind chime. I am a new Follower of your blog. If you wish you can add this link to the Creative Monday Blog Hop that I host. It is live from Sunday afternoon. Have a great week.

Thanks for linking. When I was visiting my sister in PA we saw something with bottles that we're going to try out. I love bottles. I'm so into bottles right now... Beautiful. Linda
