Pom-Pom Hanging Mobile

I am in love with my current project...

It's still a work in progress, but i love how it's coming together!
 Last night I started working on this mobile, hanging thing. I stayed up into the wee-hours of the night making the pom-poms for it.  I didn't know where I was quite going with it...  but, sometimes those kind of projects turn out the best!
For those who don't know how to make pom-poms, check out these links....  [there are a bazillion tutorials out there, I'm not going to take the time to write one up.]

I started by making a "hanger" out of ribbon. I cut [approx.] a 18" piece of ribbon, folded it in half, and hot-glued the ends to a pom-pom.

I took a chinese lantern and hand-stitched it to the bottom of the pom-pom, to hang.
One by one, I added the rest of the pieces, guesstimating & 'following' my eye.

I'm having too much fun rearranging and playing! 
**This is the perfect project for a nursery!

Until next time,
