Somethin' Fishy...

Let me just begin by saying this was not my idea... photo 4_zps7c452110.jpg That's right, I was inspired by an incredibly creative and gifted lady when she wrote this post about designing a room for her girls on a budget! You must go check it out. I guarantee you'll be amazed.  photo 3_zps4e516081.jpg Anywho... Back to my fishy mobile. It really is easy as pie. All you need is paper, a black magic marker, twine, buttons, a hole puncher, and a hot glue gun.  photo 5_zps45d3fc00.jpg You can find the fish origami pattern here.  photo 6_zps6a777a49.jpg Just fold 'em. Add a black dot for an eye. Hole punch 'em. Add some twine. Tie 'em around buttons. Glue them to the ceiling and ta da!  photo 1_zps55f79fc5.jpg
Be warned, the buttons do not remove easily from the ceiling but it's a small price to pay for such a colorful view! photo 2_zps5ce9dab0.jpg
