I made 24 for an ornament exchange that I go to. They were a big hit, they certainly show off well on a Christmas tree!

Let me know if you have any questions or if I can help you.

RE: Cardinal bulb

Love the cardinals, Flamingo, would you mind posting the patterns for the faces you do on them and also how you make the hats. Thanks

RE: Cardinal bulb

The hats are a tube sewn of ribbed knitting, available at most fabric shops. Sew a tube, roll up the bottom and glue into place, place over the bulb end and tie it off. Simple, really. The faces I copied from the book, Watts Next, by Sandy Holman.
