Bird Mobile Redo

Remember this bird mobile I made at Carol’s house in PA? It was so fun to make because we only had to cut out birds from all kinds of paper, including sandpaper. Then we glued the paper birds onto a Christmas garland wire with berries. That was serendipity because I was going to glue them on regular wire and Carol said, “What about gluing them on this?” (leftover garland wire from Christmas). Perfect!
Sometimes I think I need a whole room filled with all kinds of stuff all over tables all around the room. Then I can look from one thing to another (instead of going through the many bins I have with the various things – beads, ribbon, buttons, fabric, craft papers, stickers, etc etc etc.) I think it would be good for the creative process.
Okay, well we repainted the dining room this week and I wanted to declutter the room SO I took this pretty bird mobile and put it on this old wreath which has been hanging in the dining room also.
The bow looks yucky since it’s been hanging in the same spot for 5 or 6 years undisturbed. Dusty, too. So I yanked that sucker off and here is the result. Much nicer, I think. Cleaner looking.
Here are a few of my favorite birds.
Here’s my most favorite – the sandpaper bird.
I am so pleased with the way this turned out. Maybe I’ll make another bird to fill in the place on the right that doesn’t have a bird there.
Or maybe not. :)
How it looks on the wall of the newly painted dining room.
Best wishes, Linda
