rustic Christmas... Crafty Secrets Linky Party

I love decorating for Christmas. This year I'm continuing with a rustic theme and so this month for the Crafty Secrets Linky Party I decided to make a hanging mobile for the door. I've used the ivory and black music paper from CD #1

Start by cutting out one large and four small stars. Score each point to opposite valley to create a 3D effect. Distress each of the peaks and around the edge of the star. Put some hot glue on the back of the star in the centre to keep the star from flattening out.

 Punch a hole in all but the top point of the star and one hole in the top of each of the smaller stars. Tie a knot in three pieces embroidery floss or twine and loop through each of the holes on the large star, with the knot hidden on the back side of the star.

 Add jingle bells, snowflakes and small stars to each of the thread and secure with a knot on the bottom.

Add mini bows, pine cones and embellish how you like. Hang and admire your handiwork:)
