Easy Birdcage Decor: Winter White Flowers

Have an old birdcage lying about that you would like to repurpose into a beautiful decor piece? This wonderful winter white birdcage decorating idea is a lovely DIY decorating piece for the holidays and beyond. This tells the story of a bird that has left the cage to fly south for the winter. His (or her) nest is empty, and he (or she) is off to parts unknown. This is not only a lovely winter piece, it could be used for wedding decor, a centerpiece, a front foyer piece (I always decorate my foyer!) or you could hang it as an empty birdcage in a Florida room or family room.

If you really want a bird in this piece, simply clip one to the outside of the cage for him to get back inside.

This easy birdcage decoration crosses over many types of decor: from farmhouse craft, to shabby chic, to Christmas or winter decor – even wedding centerpieces, this beautiful little birdcage will fit a multitude of decorative design ideas.

Easy Birdcage Decor: Winter White Flowers

Notes

• If your birdcage is not already white, antique white, rustic white, make certain you spray paint it white (or whatever color you choose) and allow it to dry completely before moving on to the bird’s nest and flowers.

• This birdcage decor is all about hiding the foam. There is no right or wrong way to make this beautiful little craft. If you prefer blush colored roses, use those! You could also do this in gold, silver, or blue & gold for the holidays.

• You can buy a rustic-looking white birdcage at JoAnn, Michaels, or Hobby Lobby just about anytime of the year. Or, search through consignment stores in your area for authentic old birdcages. While this is a small birdcage there is no reason you cannot adapt the “story” and flower decorations to fit a larger birdcage.

• The evergreen you purchase can be green, or white crystals/flocked to simulate snowy tips.

• This was made a side table piece. You can definitely hang it with a piece of white ribbon (match the roses!)

This is a pretty quick craft taking under 30 minutes to make. The most time you will spend if deciding on height and placement of the foam, nest, and floral pieces.

This beautiful birdcage decor is very easy to make. We (royal we as it was my niece’s idea) went with winter white and it looks spectacular in person. The roses chosen have a gold trim, and that meant that the foliage was gold. You do not have to follow the gold motif, red for winter would be fabulous too!
