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!)

Easy Birdcage Decor: Winter White Flowers Directions:

• Start with a white birdcage. Spray paint, and allow to dry if necessary.

• Insert floral foam into cage.
• Place the bird’s nest on top of the floral foam.
• 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!

  1. The best thing I love about this is that it is reasonably inexpensive and also easy to make. Almost every time I go into the charity shop, there’s a birdcage or two for sale. For our Christmas theme colours this year, I am going to try a red, gold and white one. Thanks and I wish Max all the best.
