  • Wire
  • A cutting pliers
  • Gloves
  • Possibly a clamp for holding the wire mesh to the structure

Fourth and final step: fix the lamp on its foot or suspension, placing the bulb, then add the birds on the grid. The other option is to lay them on branches or chopsticks that you can also bend.
