A Woodland Themed Christmas

Our hedgehog enjoying a day in the sun

It is Woodland Christmas week on the blog!  Woodland animals are definitely a trend right now.  Long time readers will know that we have been loving woodland animals for a few years now.  That sweet hedgehog in the picture, he is Kara's pet Silver. She got him for her birthday a few years ago after a year of begging.  That summer she chose  a Woodland Themed Birthday Party Even her Halloween costumes for the past three years have been woodland themed.  In 2011, she was a fox, the next year a raccoon, and this year a bunny.  (originally going to be a hedgehog, and then a squirrel, before settling on the bunny)  So having a woodland themed Christmas week on the blog was a pretty easy decision.   

Mini wreath ornament with bird in a nest
When going through an old box of Christmas items  that I had not gone through in a very long time, I found a bag of partially finished mini bird nest wreaths.  I thought they would be perfect to turn into a woodland themed ornament.  They already had glittery nests, and a few random ornaments glued on.  I added a few more, and the glittery ribbon, so I could hang the wreaths.  I  still might add a little bit more of the glittery stems to the nest. ( I just remembered where I have them stored as I am typing this post.)  If you have a mini wreath, and a craft bird, this is a very easy ornament to make.  All you need is a glue gun, and some items to embellish the nest.   These birds will give my woodland themed Christmas tree, a real sense of nature since they look realistic.  

Here is a fun video of Silver enjoying a warm summer day. I know it is sideways, I have looked all over and can not find where I can rotate it. Enjoy!  

I will be linking up this craft on these wonderful linky parties here. Be sure to stop by and check them out.  Also be sure to follow by email, so you don't miss a post!
