Today's project can be made in just a couple minutes. It is a great one for the bird lover in your life. You will need a small bird nest, berry and pine picks and small cardinals (I bought mine at Joann's).
Add the berries and the pine branch to the nest by using a hot glue gun.
Add your cardinal with hot glue too.
I made a similar ornament last year...
