Spring Bird Cages


In Northern Michigan, spring comes late.  That's my excuse for not doing much spring decorating yet.  But Friday was sunny and warm.  I started seeds... which means it's spring to me.  In honor of this glorious occasion, I present my humble little birdcages that I've decorated for spring.

First they got a coat of Krylon hammered metal in silver.

A peek through the closed top


To the larger birdcage, I added spanish moss, a dried butterfly (found dead last year), wooden eggs painted blue and speckled with brown paint from a toothbrush.  The butterfly was gently hot glued to a twig.  




The smaller birdcage holds a candle 


I have planted seeds and decorated my birdcages.  It is spring...bring. it. on!



I've joined these fabulous parties. Come party with me!

  1. These are so springy and sweet. What a difference a coat of paint makes. I'm pinning one for my nest board:-)

  2. These look so pretty! I'm torn because I would really like to decorate with a birdcage (because of pictures like these!) but I know it would take up a lot of space to store it. Love the spray paint transformation!
