It's always the season to be singing ... and Christmas birds are just the thing to get you in the spirit of the upcoming holiday season. Let this week's joyful new designs give wings to your imagination!

 

Decorate with classic Christmas cardinals perched in soft, snowy evergreen branches. These beloved birds, whose brilliant red feathers stand out against the stark snow, are always a wintertime favorite. Perching pairs of cute, simple birds will make lively accents on holiday wearables, wall hangings, and more. A merry medley of festive feathered friends, from flamingos decking the halls to bluebirds trimming the tree, will be fun on sweatshirts and stockings. And a flock of birds singing Christmas songs will make magically musical quilts and more.

 

There's something about spotting a bird outside your window that brings an extra little smile to the whole day. Craft a whole winter wonderland with these cheery bird designs!
