“Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?” Matthew 6
Welcome to my country kitchen in the hills of Kentucky! I’ve always wanted to have a “kitchen Christmas tree” and I thought what would be a more appropriate nod to nature than a “birds of a feather” themed tree!
Of course it had to be a fresh tree. I found this darling little pine, the perfect size for the corner of my kitchen.
In addition to the metallic acorns and various feathered friends I’ve picked up over the years, I also made these book page bird ornaments that seem quite at home in their little nests.
Here’s what you’ll need:
Book pages (newspaper would work as well)
Wood Bird Cut-outs (can be purchased at craft stores)
Faux Bird Nests
Hot glue gun
I adore how this tree turned out. It’s a bright and cheery spot in my white kitchen and makes me happy every time I’m in there, which is often during the holidays!
The fresh pine smells wonderful and my sweet little birds are there to keep me company during hours of baking and cooking. To remind me, as this hectic and sometimes stressful season gets underway, of the scripture above.
To take time to live in the moment enjoying what has been provided for me from above. So I fling the doors wide open and welcome Christmas with open arms, all of the hustle and bustle and all of the quiet moments of reflection and remembrance. All that we hold valuable.
