1  Re: cocktail umbrella mobile in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by elixia13 on: August 07, 2004 01:33:07 PM
I really like the idea of this project, but I don't have a baby, and I wanted to be able to do a project with only what I have on hand, so I adapted it into a sort of mobile/swag or whatever.  I took a bamboo stick that I got from the dollar store a couple of months ago, made little nail holes near each end, and screwed in little eyelette screws (or whatever they're called) that come with picture-hanging kits.  Then I tied the umbrellas along the length of the bamboo using metallic embroidery floss and hung up the project by tyeing a length of all six strands of the floss together through the screws.  Voila!  It now hangs on the wall above the "breakfast bar" in my apartment.  The main challenge was in keeping my cat away while I tied the umbrellas onto the bamboo.   Smiley
