For my piece I wanted to make something that you usually wouldn't associate with mobiles, so I made a hanging tree. The tree itself is made from wire and the bodies are just army men I painted white. I was going to make the bodies from fabric but the stitching got really complicated and they were just too small, so I improvised and painted some plastic army men and hung them from spinners. The ropes were going to be thread but it didn't show well so I used copper stereo wire instead.
