Many years ago, she gave my parents a set of crocheted snowflakes, then my mom gave them to me to use as Christmas tree ornaments. This year while hanging them on my tree, I thought there had to be something more I could do with them.
Hence, my snowflake mobile . . .
In addition to my grandma's six snowflakes, I also used three tiny crocheted doilies that I got at a thrift store.
First, I used fabric stiffener on all of them.Then, using ribbon, I tied them to a small metal embroidery hoop. Have you ever seen one of these before? I hadn't til a lady from church gave me a couple. How cool are they? I love the metal look, so I didn't even consider covering the hoop.
To finish it off, I tied three lengths of tulle to the hoop, then tied them together at the top so the mobile can be hung.
I think this will be pretty hanging throughout the winter- especially since we don't get real snow here!
If you like the idea of using an embroidery hoop for a mobile, take a look here and here where I used them to display photos.
Thanks for stopping by and God bless.
I will be glad and rejoice in You;
I will sing praise to Your name,
O Most High.
