Guess what I decided to use all my new Christmas ornaments for?!? We didn't put a tree up this year, mainly because when the thought crossed my mind, I looked at the calendar and it was already December 8th. So, I opted to make my own Christmas centerpiece of sorts using our fireplace mantle.
As with most crafts, this was must easier than it looks...mainly just a tad time-consuming. To create your own You'll need your ornaments, fishing wire, crimping beads, pliers and some thumb tacks. Loop a section of fishing wire through top of your ornament, then slip a crimping bead on, closing it using your pliers to create a secure 'knot'. Repeat at the other end of your fishing wire so you have a loop to affix to your mantle with a thumbtack. It should look like this when you're done. Vary the spacing and hanging lengths and you're left with your floating ornament mobile!
