Golden Birds

Once I changed out our Christmas tree skirt, everything else on the tree looked jacked up.  Little by little I'm trying to change a few things...
These birds just got upgraded.

They used to look like this

so I sprayed them with gold spray paint

Much better, right?

That is, unless you are a St. Louis Cardinals fan.  I originally bought all the birds as a nod to my dear husband's favorite team.  Sorry babe, the red birds just weren't cutting it anymore!  I did leave a few red just because the kids love cardinals.

Thanks for stopping by!  Let me know what you think of my "new" blinged-out birds!
