Take a flower making wire and twist it in a big loop with a diameter of about 2 inches for making the leaves and a tiny loop for the buds.
To make the leaves take a green tissue cloth of 5” in square. Stretch the cloth on the big wire loop. Tie the stretched cloth tightly with a matching wool to conceal all the loose ends of the fabric. Take white and gold tissue cloth measuring 4” in square. Stretch the fabric with some cotton stuffed inside on a small wire loop. Gather and tie it tightly with a matching wool to conceal all the loose ends of the fabric.
Take a long double wire twisted around each other and further twist the leaves and the buds around it as shown in the image. You will need about 12 leaves and 8 buds for each branch and about 6 such branches to make the dangler.
Seal the wires, with a green flower making tape.
To make the bird cut an oval shape of about 4” in diameter from a red fabric and fold it into half. Stick the edges of the semicircle half way through using No Stitch Fabric Glue and leave it to dry.
Stuff some cotton in the body of the bird. Gather and tie the thread to from the tail of the bird.
Cut golden colored fabric of about 3” in diameter and paste it on the body with No Stitch Fabric Glue. Outline it with 3D Outliner Glitter - Gold to avoid fraying, also stick the black ornamental stones for the eyes.
Fix the birds on the branches with a flower making wire. Arrange the branches in a criss cross manner and tie them altogether in the centre, with a flower making wire. Also create a loop from the flower making wire for hanging.
