Bird Cage Craft for Spring!

I made this little bird cage craft for the Michaels Pinterest Party a couple of weeks ago! I like it because it’s a quick and inexpensive little project.

Because I wanted to give options I made a couple of different ones…they both use the little bird cages from Michaels Stores budget craft supplies…you know, the aisle that has all the bins of inexpensive great stuff!!!

These have a base of a terra cotta flower pot…

And this base is a darling little ceramic cupcake stand…

Head over to Michaels and go on a creative scavenger hunt, you’ll find something fun to do!

For this one I used:

*little bird cage, *Cupcake stand, *Moss, *little bird or little sprig of lilac …

Paint your cupcake stand base and hot glue the cage onto the stand…Add a bit of moss into the bottom of the cages…

Add a sweet little bird…

Or maybe tuck in a sprig of spring flowers and have your little bird perched on the top of the cage…

For these little guys I used my favorite thing…terra cotta flower pots!

First give the flower pot an aged patina using watered down paint…(HERE are instructions on an easy way to age terra cotta)

Fit a piece of Styrofoam into the flower pot then cover it with sheet moss and secure the bird cage to the Styrofoam with floral pins…

For this one I used Spanish moss on the inside and hot glued more moss over the lip of the flower pot…also I glued burlap ribbon around the flower pot just to add a bit of texture!

These look so cute tucked here and there just in time for spring! They would also be ever so cute sitting at each place setting on Easter Sunday!

This little project would also make a great Craft Night Project…it’s easy and inexpensive and everyone could share a bag of moss and it would be such fun to see everyone’s unique version!

    These are so cute Robin! You could use these in the terra cotta pot and put everyone’s name on a chalkboard label and use them as place settings for Easter dinner. You could paint all the cages a different Easter color, how fun would that be.

  2. Feeling So Inspired!! Wanting to start using my glue gun again. Haven’t picked it up in years.
