4- Cut 6 20cm lengths of thread, glue wings & thread down on each side of bird.

6- Assemble the mobile by tying the bird with thread to each end & one to the middle
7- Attach the wires together & hang!

Wait for the Crafty Christmas bit...

I love the whole adapting to whats around you: Instead of me making a whole Christmas mobile from scratch it made so much more sense to use the one I had already made earlier in the year...
