and holes for the dangling pipe cleaners along the rim.

finished the whole thing with a clear polish
Step 4: Placing the Stars
I placed each light in a previously drilled hole and hot glued it into place.
Step 5: Clean Up the Spaghetti Wires

(take special care to cover all the battery and it's case with tape while painting.
Next, I drilled a hole in the center for hanging gear.
then added velcro to hold down the hide-away for the battery pack.
Step 7: Hide-away, Part 1
I painted it white with the fusion spray paint, and added velcro feet to match the velcro on the top of the mobile.
Step 8: Hide-away, Part 2
Step 9: Adding the Clouds
I left space in the poly fill for the rigging, and another for the table.
Step 10: Tasty Treats for the Table
Step 11: Cute Characters

(belay line is made of pipe cleaners)
Origami paper cranes hang from twisted pipe cleaners.
A large colorful flower is hot glued to the end of the belay line/ pipe cleaner.

The whole table can be removed (remember the velcro) to replace the batteries.
