The bird mobile is finally complete – thanks to in large part to all the people who donated birds to the project ( I still have about 8 birds left ). I found getting the balance right to be a challenge, but it went together pretty easily otherwise.
I used brown floss to sew the birds to the branches and tiny eye hooks to attach floss to the branches for hanging. The whole thing is attached to the ceiling with a C hook. I still need to tidy up the teal floss that is used to hang it, but I’m leaving it a bit long until we decide on the height.
