Birdie in Cage

2 Materials
A lot of people have pretty birdcages....yet they don't know what to do with them. Lots of people put flowers, candles, and decorate for the holidays. Well I found 3 birdcages discarded on the road. I had already used one for my hummingbird nest I found in my yard. Then when I was in Home Depot I spotted this cute little guy!
Isn't he the cutest! He looks so real.....he needed a beautiful cage to live in. The first thing I did was paint the cage.
The bird came with the log it's sitting on, a air plant on the side and a ring and chain to hang. I used Rustoleum Gold Metallic on the cage. I then covered the bird and sprayed the ring and chain he was attached to.
When dry....It was easy to attach inside of cage. I had to use wire cutters to make the side opening bigger to fit him inside.

Suggested materials:

  • Rustoleum Gold Metallic Paint   (Home Depot)
  • Bird   (Home Depot)
