My friend just had surgery and I wanted to give her something nice to look at during her recovery. I love looking at the Heart Strings I made and so decided to try making them for her as a mobile.
I found a large wooden embroidery hoop at Joann and used it as the structure to which I attached the heart strings.
I was working on it at my parents house and found the lamp shade on a floor lamp was a good base to work on. I set the wooden hoop on top of the lamp shade and tied the strings around it letting them hang down. Later I hung it over their dining room table.
I knotted the strings to the hoop and dabbed glue on the knots after trimming off the end of the string. More strings tied to the hoop were used to hang the mobile, pulled together into a knot at the top. To be honest, it didn’t hang perfectly even but I was satisfied with it.
I took it to my friend and she was delighted with it. She said it cheers her up. Her husband hung it right in front of a mirror so she gets to see it twice. As we visited, the hearts moved in a slight breeze from her open window, twisting and fluttering.
Speedy recovery to you, Princess!
Thanks for stopping by.
