Our family, cats included, loves to watch the birds and squirrels in the yard. Keep you little furry and feathered friends happy this Christmas, by making them their own x-mas tree.

Step 1: Make the tree.

Ours is sort of a Charlie Brown X-mas tree on steroids.

You can definatly get a real X-mas tree and set it up, but we just had a big ice storm and lots of branches fell down in our yard. We figure, why waste them. My husband jammed them into an X-mas tree stand, tied them together and screwed the base to the deck.

<p>amazing i love to watch and to draw birds, i especially love to watch the birds eating the seeds at my treestand when i hunt for deer. (sorry if it disturbs you or makes you sad or anything along those line because i hunt) i will have to hang these around the feeders near the house. what i also love to donis hang yarn from trees so birds may take them for insulating their nests during the winter.</p>
X as an abbreviation for Christ is taken from the Greek letter chi and dates back at least 1000 years. There are examples of its usage in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle in 1021. It is not modern, it is not anti-Christian, it is not pagan, and it is not a commercial usage. It is and has always been from its introduction a proper, fitting abbreviation used in correspondence and theological writing by Christians learned in Greek, and features in many pieces of religious art, especially in the Orthodox Church. <br> <br>Domestic_engineer, I do hope you were not discouraged by the hostility of an apparently uninformed fellow Christian. Your 'ible is lovely. <br> <br>We have a couple of small pines growing in our front yard. I'll have to dig this out next Christmas season. <br>
Yes, XMAS is for the birds, CHRISTMAS is for us humans, it is the real spelling, so use it please!
Just beautiful! Hope the birds are singing too (not just eating)! ;)<br>
this is so cute! i'd love to make some for party giveaways...how long do they last? how far in advance from the party can i make them?! thank you
