welcome

Hi, we're Modern Vintage. We love weddings, we love love & we love to sing while we set up. Our favorite part of the day is watching you, as a new couple, walk back down the aisle after the ceremony. That feeling of elation & pure joy is why we do what we do.

I had a lot of fun with this project.  It was for Jessie’s modern woodland/triangle shower.  I love this and really want one for my office.  A lot.  (P.S. the photo above is professional, the rest are amateur photos taken by me as I did this project late in the evening…)

Tools:

  • Scissors
  • Cricut (if you don’t want to cut the triangles by hand)
  • Ribbon, decorative string or twine (I found mine in the sewing section at Hobby Lobby)
  • 10″ embroidery hoop
  • Spray Paint
  • Scrapbook Paper
  • Hot glue gun

I started by cutting out all my triangles with the Cricut. I set them about 2″ but you could cut them at any size you wanted.  I was able to cut 10 triangles per page. I cut about 70 triangles but did not use that many.  I had a helper to peel them off the sheets.  (That is until Pokemon came on.)

Next, I measured the length I wanted my string (about two feet) and cut string to fit around the embroidery hoop.  (About 17 strings) If this were actually going to hang over a crib I would not have cut the sting nearly that long.  I spray painted the hoop and after it was dry I tied the string through the central  part of the hoop and knotted it.

After this, I put a thin line of hot glue right down the middle of the triangle and glued them onto the string.  I glued most of them with the point facing down and then every third strand I did the point facing up.

When that was finished, voila, I had a fun, modern and funky mobile.  (That I still really want. a lot.)
