First, go outside and gather some sticks/branches! Even if you don't have your own stick-producing trees, try to find a friend or neighbor that might have some. The great thing about this is you can scale it to whatever size you like. You could go huge for a dramatic centerpiece or chandelier type display, or smaller for a bedroom or office.

Slide the wings through the slots in the birds' bodies, fold upward and use a tiny bit of glue when putting in the tail.
Tie strings to the back of the birds, then tie them at varying lengths and directions to the sticks. Make sure the mobile stays balanced.
There you have it! Feel free to use the bird templates for any other projects you have. Let me know what you've used them for if possible. Enjoy!
