Go into your scrapbooking supplies and pull out your spunkiest papers. Cut out the bird template into thick cardstock and trace away. For a mobile like my babe’s, make 10 birds- 20 bird cut-outs because each bird has a color side and a black and white side. I read somewhere that black and white really stands out for little babies and their developing eyeballs; plus the contrast is pretty. Use rubber cement which doesn’t leave air bubbles. It’s a must for paper crafts. You might say I’m attached to it. You might say I was in a sticky situation. Glue humor is so tacky. Ahhh, that’s enough of that.
For the nest part, I used floral wire and I hung the birds with fishing line. Here’s what it looks like from inside the crib. If you want to see the rest of the nursery, click here!
