I found some white metal hoops (not sure what they're really for) and twisted and tied ribbon scraps from the previous projects to cover the hoops. I also added some extra ribbon I had lying around.
pattern from Spool to make the little birds (it's also where I got the idea to mix my two ideas and make a 'fairytale mobile'). I waited until I got to the US to add stuffing. I had made lots of birds, so when I felt like I had enough on the mobile, I just added bells to the filling of the leftover birds to give my little niece some soft, little, jingly birds to play with. I'm happy to say she loves her jingly birds and looking at her mobile! My sister hung it from the finial of the ceiling light fixture, so it hangs down in the middle of the room.
