Why a decorative birdcage?
I ask, “Why not?” 😉 Decorative birdcages can be found at major craft stores and can be decorated to suit any occasion. The fact that you can use it year round makes it a worthwhile investment, in my opinion. If you hadn’t guessed, I plan on integrating it into my Halloween decor soon!
I also love that a birdcage can add that rustic look that seems to be in season right now.
What supplies will I need?
This DIY is super basic and will not require much in the way of supplies. In fact, I wound up using left over sunflowers from my Sunflower and Plaid Tablescape and Basket Full of Sunflowers DIYs. You can check those posts out if you’d like to coordinate your decor.
I wound up using the following:
- A few faux sunflowers (stems and leaves included)
- Burlap with lace ribbon.
- A piece of scrapbook paper cut to fit the bottom of the cage.
How do I put it all together?
This DIY is so simple you’ll be done in minutes!
Step 1: Place sunflowers and leaves along the top of the birdcage.
Do NOT hot glue the sunflowers on! The stems of the faux sunflowers should have wire in them. I just wrapped the stems around the cage and it sort of looks like a vine wrapped around the cage. This also makes it easy to preserve your birdcage for future craft projects.
Step 2: Weave the burlap ribbon along the bottom of the cage.
Thread the ribbon in and out of each wire post in the cage. Be sure to fold in and glue the ends so that the ribbon looks “finished” and stays held together.
Step 3: Place decorative paper on bottom of the cage.
I used a circular craft cutter to get a circle close to the shape of the bottom of the cage. I placed some craft decorative hay along the edges to cover up the space that the paper did not cover.
Step 4: Make a Sunflower and Plaid Tablescape!
