Cardinal in Birch Ornament BY SandhraLee @Etsy: I made the ornament from gorgeous 100% wool felt, using a slate grey for the background, ecru for the birch trees & a lovely rich red for the cardinal. The trees & bird are needle-felted & embroidered onto the background & the ornament is plumped out w/ polyester craft batting. The cardinal's eye is a tiny blue glass seed bead.
