Seriously, the photocopying a template for hanging things and the velcro on the bottom of drawer organizers have been two of the most amazing life changers.

Just ask my husband how many times this past week I’ve opened the silverware drawer and said “Ahhh haa! Did you see that? It didn’t move!”

Kinda sad, isn’t it?

Oh, it’s the little things in life that make me happy.

Pinterest Project: Ribbon Mobile

I think the second thing I ever pinned on Pinterest was a Ribbon Mobile from Between U & Me. Yep, over a year ago and up until this week it was another unaccomplished project. But the whole Pinterest challenge from Young House Love got me in the mood to create this…

ribbon-mobile-craftI finally got my act together and finished my Ribbon Mobile for my daughter’s bedroom. Pretty cute, right? And it only took a couple minutes (and a couple bucks) to complete.

ribbon mobile suppliesI gathered my supplies:

  • Ribbon in multi colors
  • Embroidery hoop (only the inside needed)
  • White embroidery thread
  • Scissors

cut for ribbon mobileI cut the ribbon into about 24 – 28 inch lengths. I didn’t really worry about being exact since I didn’t want a straight bottom edge.

Once completed, you can hang it with your thread (I just tied the thread around the hoop in three separate spots then brought them together to tie the mobile from the ceiling).
