And here is what I created...
I love the way it turned out...
I created the moon and the stars with my Cricut.
The Moon was cut from Paper Doll Dress Up.
And the Star from Cricut Craft Room Essentials.
I covered them in Recollections Tinsel Glitter.
Glitter Colors: Sunflower (yellow), Paradise (Blue), Fairy Dust (Purple) and Blush (Pink)
I covered an Embroidery hoop with Pink Fine Glitter (unknown brand) and Star Confetti Glitter.
I used paper as a base and double stick taped down the paper to the hoop before putting the glitters on.
I used Perfect Pearls and water to create a mist to use on the cream silk ribbon to crunch it up and give it a little shimmer and stiffness to hold the mobile and use as a hanging piece in the center.
I used a need I made from wire to string plastic beads from my daughters stash on the ribbons.
I spaced the beads 4" apart using 4 colors and 4 beads on each strand.
Some of the beads holes were bigger than most so I glued those beads with Ranger's Glossy Accents on to the ribbon. Each dangling ribbon is 24" long and spaced 1 3/4" apart. And just tied onto the hoop.
The stars were all glued on to the ribbons with Glossy Accents.
