Easy Bird Mobile

010aacc
While visiting my sister, we made bird mobiles. Well, my first idea was to have birds hanging on a string but my sister had some kind of a Christmas wired garland left hanging around so we used that. And it’s great because it spirals downward and looks natural.

I wanted to cut the birds out of all different kinds of paper including sandpaper. Well, we were in a hurry because we were leaving for home in a few hours so we had to use what we had on hand. We had some cute scrapbooking cardstock so we used that and then I dug around and found some sandpaper. I really wanted to use sandpaper. Here is the sandpaper bird.

Anyway, Michele used a bird book as reference to draw some bird shapes and we all cut out various shapes and sizes of birds. We glued them onto the wire with hot glue. The wire even has some red berries on it.

It’s so cheery to look at in the window.
