A Cardinal Tree

Marlene KindredDecember 11, 2011

Last year I found this candle holder that was shaped like a tree. It was missing one of the candle "dishes", so my DH welded another one on for me. He painted it with bronze paint and I added Christmas greenery, ribbons, bling and the cardinals. I'm pretty pleased with the turnout. I had planned to put it on my front porch, but I decided to put it on the fireplace hearth instead.

Marlene, That is beautiful. It reminds me of my Mother. She used to have 15 or more cardinals come to her bird feeders and it was wonderful to see so many in one place...especially when it had snowed.

Beautiful Marlene. I love cardinals and like Marylee said they are something when against a fresh snowfall.

Great save! I love cardinals also, guess it's the beautiful red coloring on them, so cherry in winter! It looks great with your nutcracker guys! Jan
