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.

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!)

• Close the birdcage.
• Now, eyeball what height you want for your nest. Cut down the floral foam to fit the height (and width) you need.

• Once you have cut down the floral foam, make certain it fits in the space you eyeballed – if it does fit, hot glue in place. If it does not yet fit, take off some more floral foam. Remember it is better to take less off and cut twice than take too much floral foam off the first time.
• Hot glue the nest on top of the floral foam.

• Cut down and insert evergreen to surround the nest. You will see the original stems.
• Start to fill in the birdcage around the floral foam and nest with floral and evergreen (or berries) – you want this to look like the bird is simply out of town for the winter – so some overgrowth, and a little snow.

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!

Cranberry Holly Winter White Wreath DIY

Cranberry Holly Winter White Wreath DIY. This beautiful Cranberry Holly Winter White Wreath is a simple rustic wreath that appears time-consuming, but actually comes together in under 30 minutes! Follow these easy step by step directions to make your own lovely custom Christmas door hanger wreath.


This beautiful Cranberry Holly Winter White Wreath is a simple rustic wreath that appears time-consuming, but actually comes together in under 30 minutes! Follow these easy step by step directions to make your own lovely custom Christmas door hanger wreath.

Cranberry Holly Winter White Wreath DIY

While I wrote this up as a Christmas wreath for a door, it would also be fabulous over the fireplace. You may want to up the size of it thought – depending on the side of your fireplace mantel – to make it stand out.


The focal point of this wreath is the holiday sign. The cascade of berries is to offset the focal point making it less one-sided. This wreath aims for “snowiness” (yes, that is now a word), but it is not a snow-wreath.

Cranberry Holly Winter White Wreath DIY. This beautiful Cranberry Holly Winter White Wreath is a simple rustic wreath that appears time-consuming, but actually comes together in under 30 minutes! Follow these easy step by step directions to make your own lovely custom Christmas door hanger wreath.


Notes

• Make certain to match the size of your wreath to the door or area where it will be hung. A 36″ wreath on a 30″ door will not work. Likewise, a 24″ wreath over your fireplace mantel will probably be lost.

• Take a look at Halloween clearance sales too as many times you can find white wreaths there for 50-75% off!

• On that note, also take into account the sign to wreath ratio. You want something substantial, but not too overwhelming.

• This wreath uses a holiday sign as the focal point. You could also use a different object as your focal point: a stuffed reindeer or moose, a small birdcage, a Christmas tree topper, Santa or Mrs. Claus, a large partridge – anything that is holiday focused. In other words, you can gear this toward your holiday theme!

• If you plan on hanging this wreath from just after Thanksgiving through most of the winter, consider your focal point to be more generic… that is where a stuffed moose or moose sign would work very well!

• This wreath is frosted, not sparkly. If you choose to add sparkle, make it one or two touches of sparkle – such as the picks used. The sparkle on the picks will pick up the light. There will always be a small sparkle that is picked up from light (even if only streetlights).

• This is a door hanger wreath, it does not really lend itself to a ribbon for hanging. Since rustic does not always do ribbon “well” if you need a ribbon to hang, consider a red plaid one. No bow on this wreath either.

Follow these easy step by step directions to make your own lovely custom Christmas door hanger wreath.


Cranberry Holly Winter White Wreath DIY Materials:

• 1 White Wreath
• 1 Holiday Sign (focal point)
• 2 Pick Floral Fruit
• 1 Geraniums Bush
• 3 picks Holly Berries
• Greenery
Glue Gun
• Hot Glue Sticks
Wire Cutters
• Floral Wire (optional)

Follow these easy step by step directions to make your own lovely custom Christmas door hanger wreath.


Cranberry Holly Winter White Wreath DIY Directions:

• Position the sign (or whatever you are using as your focus) on the wreath. This is offset on the center, and “we” (the royal we because my niece had the idea, I’m just the running commentary and photographer) decided lower right. If you would like lower left because that works better for where you plan on hanging this finished wreath, that works too!

• Hot glue or wire in place. If you are going to wire, make sure you loop the floral wire through the hanger on the back of your sign, and through the wire on your wreath. Pretend you are weaving or sewing. Pull tight for less movement. You may also want to wire AND hot glue for stiffer placement, especially if your sign is heavy.

Follow these easy step by step directions to make your own lovely custom Christmas door hanger wreath.


• The berries are being used to balance against the focal point you are creating. That sign (+ flowers you will be adding) is BIG. If you left it by itself on the wreath, it would be a lotta white, and a big old sign. You need something to break it up, hence the berry trail.

• Remember when hot gluing the berries in place that you are layering and adding leaves (intermingling greens) not lumping them together. Overlaying your berries, leaves, and picks will make the wreath look better.

Follow these easy step by step directions to make your own lovely custom Christmas door hanger wreath.


• The reason geraniums were chosen as the flower for this wreath is because they are large. The sign is the focal point (I may have mentioned that before), and the geraniums are actually going to make that focal point a GIANT focal point that cannot be missed. Clip the geraniums, and place two large portions of the clippings (either one large, or two smaller) on either side of the focal point. Hot glue in place. Pull through some of the wreath into the geraniums for a slight break-up, and to show the wreath underneath.

• Two large flower features are set so as not to have 4-5 smaller features pulling your eyes in all directions. Breaking up the geraniums is key – this wreath needed color, but you don’t want it to be a big blob of color that slaps you in the er, eye.

• Once you have layered the berries (always do a dry run before hot gluing), and have added some greenery, use the picks to add some interest and conceal any holes which may show.

• Tuck away any wire you may have used, and move the wreath pines over bare spots.
