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.

    The birds up here are really cute. I’ll surely try it out for my 5 yr old Linda.

    Hi Catherine, I’m afraid I really don’t know except that the blog where this came from says that you can find them at craft stores. Perhaps also florists might use them. I presume you have googled.

    Try florist supplies, even ebay or perhaps your nearest craft store might be able to tell you.
    Otherwise, I’m sure any hoop made from anything would work. Your local craft store would be a good place to start.
