This is my Fiesta Tree Hanger made from a Lamp shade.  These hang and sway so beautifully from trees, on any place you would like it to catch wind.
Here is a great shape that will look gorgous once I get all of the flowers and ribbons on it.  I wanted to show you the many shapes you can use.
These flat shapes work well too, these are great as they sway nicely too.
So these are what await for me and I cant wait to get started on others as I have several ideas to get a moving.

Here in San Antonio Texas we have "Fiesta", it is our Mari Gras so to speak and we start it all off by decorating our houses...it is the greatest event and fun for all.  So as I love to come up with new and crazy new ideas (yes and many found and junk like items).  I'm always talking about how my mother is always bringing me stuff and tells "YOU" can make something with it...lol.  I always do so with several lampshades in my shop I wanted something to hand from my trees yes for Fiesta!!!  So as I went at it with ribbon in tow I came up with these "Fiesta Tree hangers" I love the way they sway in the wind.  Colorful ribbon and flowers all the way around.  I have some other ideas as to how I'm will make some other styles of hangers and I will post soon.  I love these and hope you will tooo.
