Here`s one of my folk art creations…the birds are husked butternut tree nuts that are carved and painted , i try to match them to the wildbirds that come to my feeder. The 3 top ones are wrens, bottom left-chickadee and right- yellow finch. The back piece is a weathered poplar board from the local sawmill. All the woods are natural… No stain ! Cherry and black walnut, red cedar door mat, white oak porch, sliced butternut wreath on door, carved bone door handle and star. These creations bring a smile to anyone who looks at them…I also make the pencil holders using natural tree limbs but these farmhouses are a big hit.
