DIY: Paper bird mobile

paper bird mobile

I got inspired for another mobile – and this time I wanted to make a bird mobile for a little girl who has recently started going to school. 🙂

I wanted to mix materials and therefore I used paper and felt in different colours.

You’ll need:

  • thicker paper in different colours
  • felt in different colours
  • pair of scissors
  • a pencil
  • paper (for making a stencil)
  • white thread
  • a needle

Firstly, you have to make a stencil of a bird (like in the picture above). Use the outer line to draw birds on the different coloured papers.

After you make as many paper birds as you like, you can cut the bird stencil in half. Now, using the smaller part (without the tail), you can cut the belly part of the birds out from the felt.

Glue the felt parts on the paper birds and let it dry for around 10 minutes. As last step, use the needle and the thread to hang up the paper birds (e.g. on a lamp, in the window, on a wall …).
