The Three Birdies went bird watching this weekend to bring you a bird ornament roundup. You know, so you can complete your totally cute, handmade ornament collection with all that free time you have before Christmas. And because we really, really love birds. Really.
We loved this little birdie pattern since we found this last summer. Originally made for a cool mobile, they're making their debut on our site as Christmas tree ornaments! Check out Spool Sewing for this and other great free patterns.
Tricia Rennea Art and Illustrations is offering a free pattern for another stuffed bird ornament. You could even string them together for little birdie garland! Check out the Maddie Bird Pattern, and don't forget to post a pic in our Flickr pool if you end up making these!
Lil' Fish Studios made these darling felted bird ornaments, but they may have been from last Christmas, because I don't see them in her Etsy shop. Darn! You might just have to make your own. But check out here blog--she makes amazing stuff. Think little felted acorns. Adorable!
Sunshine's Creations has a tutorial for fun Christmas and winter embroidered felt ornaments. We love these!
And Martha revives that old childhood tradition--the cinnamon applesauce ornament. They smell delicious, but don't be tempted--they're not edible! We love the "upgrade" she gave them by using colorful glitter and beads. Way cuter than the ones I made in preschool.
Whether your tree is decorated or not, there's still time to make a few little birdies to hang around for the holidays!
