I saw your question online. I was wondering if anyone sent you an idea about mobiles made of pop bottles. I am looking for something like this. I see them hanging in yards all over the beach area where I live and I wonder how people make them. The spin in the wind. It looks pretty simple, but I would like more info. If you have anything I would really appreciate it.

There is a great craft site online "Danielle's Place" that gives instructions for one from a pop bottle and another from a Loreal bottle. They are really cute.

I saw these made on a craft show once and the secret is a wood-burner to "cut" the bottle. Other then that, just get crafty! ;-) - Christine Baldwin Spokane WA

My grand daughter's music teacher wanted a tropical fish theme for his wedding reception. We found your pattern for pop bottle fish, it was a fantastic hit, There were school teachers, quizzing us where we got the idea.


We gave them your web site. Thank you for the craft idea.
