Donut Mobile

DSCN3423

Hello!

Recently, on Craftgawker I saw this post, but wasn’t sure what to do with it.

But then I had the idea to make a hanging mobile!

Here’s what you need:

  • Mod Podge
  • Sissors
  • String / Thin thread
  • Needle
  • Sticky tape
  • Craft knife
  • Embroidery hoop, or hoop of some kind
  • Parchment

Step 1

Step 3

DSCN3411

Cut all the templates out, cutting the inside holes with a craft knife

Step 4

Take each template and draw a dot where the string will be attached.

Step 5

DSCN3416

Thread the string through the eye of the needle and pierce the hole. Tape to the inside with sticky tape.

Step 6

DSCN3417

Assemble the donuts by sticking the tabs together with Mod Podge. I recommend ‘icing’ side down.

  Step 7

DSCN3418

Tie the string from the donuts evenly spaced around the hoop. Make sure the strings are at varying heights.

You are complete. Enjoy hanging your donut mobile. Its sure to make you hungry!

Ads

Hello again.

Recently, I have been looking at advertisements for my Media Studies class, and one of the assignment was to find you favourite ad.

Finally after a lot of careful wording, I finally found the 1234 – sock ads.

They were always my favourites!

Does anyone else remember these?

I realise people from other countries may not recognise them, as the are for the Australian brand, Telstra.

Even so, i think they are quite witty and cute.

What do you think?

New Art

Bonjour!

Recently, i have had, and searched for, a lot of inspiration for my paintings and drawings.

One of the best I’ve found has been Long Blue Straw.

Her work is amazing and inspirational!

Here are some of my favourites

Happy Australia Day Everyone!

I apologise for the temporary hiatus, these holidays were just to busy!

It is a countdown of the best 100 songs of last year, as voted by the people.

My vote was this.
