Bird Mobile

Do you ever invent something and then find out that everyone else has already done it? 
I thought up what I thought was a brilliant idea for this little bird mobile a few weeks ago, and since then I've seen several (better!) bird mobiles out there in the blogging world :o) Oh well! I decided to make mine anyway, and here is how it turned out!


I used old limbs from a tree I trimmed a little while ago, and little white birds that I've collected randomly. I've heard that the dollar store sells little birds that you can spray paint! My birds, amazingly, both came with little clips on the bottom, which made attaching them really easy. But if your birds don't have clips, a glue gun should do the trick!

Then I just tied them together with fishing wire, and hung it from the ceiling.

Easiest project ever!

If you don't have little birds, it would be pretty with just fall leaves, too!  Or flowers in the spring!

  1. I love your bird mobile. How clever. I've never seen anyone else's; so I have nothing to compare them to. I may do this. I also love your silhouettes. The silhouettes would make great gifts. I really appreciate that you always share how to do these projects because I would never be able to figure them out on my own, and I want to do both! I need to go through your whole blog and see what other cool things you've made that I can make. Thanks again!
