I can't remember the exact price, but I think it was around $40. Ummm, I don't think so. The birds were made of paper! I can totally make something close to that!
So, nine months after his birth, I finally completed his mobile. Not as pretty or full as the Pottery Barn version, but I like it. It took quite some time to trace and cut out all those little birds. I used a thicker style of scrapbook paper for the birds, and they are hot glued on to fishing line. Kind of like a bird sandwich. Yes, that is two birds smashed together. Like I said, lots of little birdies. Kevin took two sticks and secured them in the middle with some wire. The mobile is suspended from the ceiling by fishing line and hanging from a hook that is screwed in from the ceiling. We already had everything, so the only think we spent money on was the paper. The mobile ended up costing us a whopping $3!
