Driftwood and Seaglass Mobile

Good Evening everyone…. well the crafty marathon continues ๐Ÿ™‚ ย  ย I have spent the last 2 hours wrapping copper wire around seaglass and boy do my fingers hurt lol

I made this Driftwood and Seaglass Mobile to hang outside my shed.. I was inspired to make one after seeing a picture on Pinterest.. I think it will look lovely when the sun shines on it this spring / summer..

I have a stash of seaglass.. and this is perfect to use it up! ย although I do need to go out to the beach hunting for more blue pieces ๐Ÿ˜‰

Supplies :-

  • Driftwood
  • Seaglass
  • Copper Wire
  • Screws with Eyes (sorry I dont know the technical name for them ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

Two posts in one day ๐Ÿ™‚

I made another couple of handbound / handmade books up in my shed this afternoon, to finish off my WOC DT project for this week..

Have a Wonderful Easter…..

Just a wee note to wish everyone that follows, reads and pops in to pay a visit to my blog ย a very Happy Easter.

Remember the eggs I decorated a few weeks back? ..

Take a Kilner Jar, ย some branches from your garden (i tried to get pussy willow, but its all gone here now) , some pretty ribbon and a few decorated styrofoam eggs et voila ๐Ÿ™‚

Easter Everywhere {poem}

Rabbits soft and cuddly
Baby chickens, too.
Easter eggs for baskets
White and pink and blue.
Easter cards of greeting,
Music in the air,
Lilies just to tell us
It’s Easter everywhere.

Have a wonderful time with your families today.
