Pretty mobile to brighten up the dullest wall
We just moved house, and there are a few grotty nails on the walls... So I thought I'd craft up something to make the place a bit brighter!

    Get your bits and bobs together. You won't need much for this project.

    Next, attach the wool to the wire by knotting around the end and folding the wire over on itself, securing with the pliers.

    Although odd, it might help to squeeze the pliers together by your feet or knees, otherwise you might need an extra hand. Now, wrap around the wire until the whole length is covered.

    Next, twist into a heart, chopping off any straggly bits of wool. Then begin to wrap the wool around the edge of the heart to make a spider web effect.

    Repeat these steps for however many hearts you want on your mobile, then attach them together.

This is super-cute! I'm hoping to move house soon and am looking for pretty stuff to hang on the walls. Your demostration of squeezing the pliers with your feet made me chuckle!
