These sweet pastel paper birds make an adorable mobile to cheer up your kids’ room or nursery. Or make them without string to decorate a children’s party or as note cards and gift tags!

You’ll need cardstock, a printer, scissors and string (if making a mobile) and the free printable template (see below).

Download the free printable paper bird template HERE.

To make, print out the the template, cut around the bird and one of the wings (only one because if you cut the other side’s wing, it will fall out) and fold the middle along the dotted lines.

To hang, pass a string in the middle. You can also attach a small pom pom at the end to add some charm.
