How to make a Bird Mobile

Summer tweets Bird mobile

I just love anything to do with birds when it comes to decor so I thought I’d share this bird mobile project with you that I can across today on The Red Thread.

I’ve featured a bird mobile before here, but this one is so cute too, and worthy of note.
Make it as a gift for a baby shower or create it with your child using up old scraps of fabric. A great rainy day project that can be done in stages if necessary for your own child’s room. Mind you it’ll be just as lovely in an adult room too or hanging in a tree on a warm evening amongst some fairy lights.

New Topiary tree and Name Banner Mural

Introducing our latest DIY mural design for baby nurseries and little girls bedrooms.

These ‘oh so girlie’ topiary trees would look great either side of a door like below, or either side of her cot/crib or bed.

The paint by number mural kit comes with a personalised name banner for above the bed or anywhere in the room.

The beauty of this design is that it will look wonderful in a newborn baby nursery, but yet will not be out of place as she grows into a little lady
