Old lampshade to mobile

The two rings are made from the wire parts of a lampshade that are bound with thread. The cow, clouds and moon are two sheets of card encasing coloured sweetwrappers to catch the light. I added wire stars and some left over glow in the dark paint from an old project.

I really like that this mobile has a lot of spin.

Wrapper rescue

I’m interested in looking at how we can reuse wrappers of all kinds – sweets, chocolate, crisps, wrapping paper, that coming in a range of foils, plastic foils, paper foils and thin cheap plastic. Mostly this plastic packaging can’t be recycled. However they offers a huge range of colours and sparkle and I’m looking for ideas to make long lasting items out of them.
