Nursery chandelier....

 Only Daughter and I decided Miss Cupcake needed a little mobile above her crib and so we commenced to make something cute, funky, and fun.  This is it.  All we did was to staple some cardboard strips together to make the two rings.  Then we wrapped them with brightly colored scrap fabric strips.  After that, we made tissue paper pom poms according to Martha Steward here.

After the tissue pom poms were made, we tied them onto the rings with colored yarn and that was it!  You could hang many other things from the rings, but we liked our chandelier just like this.  When the fan is blowing in Cupcake's nursery, it gently moves the pom poms this way and that way, and she is happily entertained by it.

This was a very fun project to do together.  I especially liked making the pom poms.  I could have made a gob of them -- especially the pointy poms.  I made a few smaller pom pom flowers for Cuppycake's 3 month picture.  We used a bit of toothpaste to *glue* the flower to her pretty little head so it would stay.  I told Only Daughter that this was how I stuck bows to her head when she was an infant with just a little hair.  Our laundry basket pictures turned out fun, dontcha think?
