Floating Clouds at Home

These last few weeks have been filled with fun and adventure for me – I was flying home from L.A. on Tuesday and had the most wonderful thoughts while soaring through the clouds at dusk. The experience made all the little details of this job seem to disappear for a moment. After coming home I was thrilled to peak at my own soaring clouds hanging in the dinning room and it immediately made me remember the calm and encouraged feeling I had while 35,000 feet above the coast.

The clouds are made from the simplest of materials and they really do give a calming affect to any room. I just love them! An easy project to tackle this weekend if you need a moment of calming rest.

Make your own set of clouds in under 5 minutes (my good friend Kat taught me how). Empty and clean a 2-liter soda bottle, or water bottle for smaller clouds. Thread a length of fishing wire through the center of the bottle first and tie off. Then use spray adhesive to stick a bunch of batting around the entire bottle. It doesn’t have to be perfect, or even hang evenly to give a pretty and restful vibe.

    wooow this look awesome, pretty and cool, like a real cloud.
    Love it. I can watch the real clouds everyday when i’m laying on my couch and watch the sky. It’s like fairy tail that is showed outside all the changing figures you can see in the clouds and the movements. and it’s really true that the dutch clouds are huge and famous. I have never believed it was a true story, but now i live nearby the seashore i’m impressed.
    Sometimes for those days without clouds this project will be awesome to have hanged on the ceiling. so thank you for the sharing and the great tute!!!!;-D
