Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

This mobile craft turned out cuter than I expected.  The original plan was to make star and moon shapes out of glue and glitter on wax paper and then peel them off to make a mobile.  But I used way too much glue and then left them outside to dry and it rained.  So instead of wax paper, we used aluminum foil.  I drew some celestial shapes on the foil (which I wrapped on a baking sheet to both stabilize it and catch all the excess glitter) and Eva painted them with white glue.
Then she sprinkled glitter all over the place glue.
When the glue dried, I cut out the shapes and attached them to curling ribbon with clear tape.  I used the extra aluminum foil to form a ring and hung the shapes from it.  It is actually really pretty when it catches the sunlight and even sparkles a little in the dark.
