Several small wicker hats
Foam shapes **
Small liberty bell
Quick Link/Plastic Ring for hanging
Take plastic sand shovel and drill 3 to 4 holes depending on how many strands you want. Using paulie rope run thru the holes and secure
with a pony bead on both sides. String a foam shape between 2 pony beads. Do strands of the same color or you could shake it up and string different colors on each one. Tie pieces of cotton rope between pony beads for preening. Tie off at end with a small wicker hat and a pony bead or a bell to secure. Cut hole in top of large hat and push down over shovel handle and use a Quick Link to hang thru shovel handle.
**Use caution when using Foam Beads with larger birds!!
Pull rope through the ball so the 2 long ends hang out. Thread a large button/bead/foam bead and knot. Do the same on other end. Choose your toys and thread them on. It’s a good idea to put a knot after each toy so they don’t all fall off if your bird unties the bottom knot.
