My new place has rather high ceilings.  I created this snowflake mobile to hang over our table. Hopefully it is high enough that the cat will not bat at it.  Wink She seemed very interested when I was making it.

Wonderful job! Cheesy I know that my kitties are always interested in what I am making as well.
I would love to see how you did this too, maybe a tute would be a good idea. Wink

I love it!  Of course, that's not just because I love snowflakes in general.  It's lovely.  I just convinced my kids to help me cut out dozens of snowflakes to hang from our ceiling on strings, but it's not nearly as nice as your mobile.  And I assume you didn't have all sorts of little bits and scraps all over your floor when you finished!

Awh Thanks guys  Roll Eyes
It was really pretty easy and I am quite happy with it. 
The snowflakes themselves are made of foam. I picked them up, pre-cut at Hobby Lobby.  (You can see that half of them have a round hole in the center. That is because they were designed to be made into picture holding ornaments).
I covered the snowflakes in good old Elmer's glue and then dipped them in either blue or white glitter. (yes there was glitter everywhere)
Since the snowflakes are really lightweight I just strung them together using some white thread. The snowflakes already had holes in the top.
The end of each string was then tide to a piece of white plastic canvas. (remove the cat from the room before attempting this step.)
I then stuck it to the ceiling using four push pins, one through each corner of the canvas.
