Four Calling Birds Mantel

Who hasn't heard the song, "The Twelve Days of Christmas?" I've been singing it as long as I can remember! This year my mantel's theme is inspired by the fourth day of Christmas in the song, "Four Calling Birds."
A wreath made from fresh greenery fits the theme with the addition of four birds that I cut from luan and painted white. Red ribbon makes this wreath really pop!
Two birds on either side of the mantel appear to be flying. These were cut with from scrap wood.
Pine cones in the center of the mantel appear to be kissed with snow thanks to the addition of spray faux snow that I found in my teaching supplies. I think that I bought this for a school craft back in 1991. This DIYer has learned that it pays to keep things.
