Create a nature mobile to hang indoors or outdoors. We used pine cones and feathers but you could make one out of anything you find - try shells and driftwood for a sea-inspired mobile.

Method
Cut several lengths of string and tie the pine cones and feathers on along the string. You could try making longer and shorter pieces and tie different numbers of cones on to get a different look. We found that the feathers swished nicely in a breeze.

Tie the pieces of string on to the twig, adjusting where they are positioned until the mobile is balanced.

Tie a loop of sting around the top stick and hang the mobile outside or inside.
