This bird cage has been an ever evolving little accessory.
I have it hanging in my dining room, and with each idea,
it felt like there should be something else to complete it.
And I am happy with the creation!
I started with a bronze color bird cage that I purchased from Real Deals.
I knew this piece would be in our dining room, so I wanted something light and fun.
I spray painted the cage a pale blue.
The cage hung empty for awhile, but it just needed something.
I didn't want something expected in it- like a bird or a nest with eggs.
I started by putting some twigs in it.
Initially I added in some Reindeer moss- the clumpy bright green kind- but it was too messy.
Too much stuff to drop out the bottom.
These nifty little moss 'rocks' I found at the Dollar Tree worked beautifully.
Our dining room is nice, but not too formal.
So I went for the unexpected and whimsical idea I had in my head.
I went with a vintage-y looking font and printed this out, and popped it in a frame I had for something else.
With my bird perched in the cage on it's branches, I thought it would be done.
But it needed a little bit of color.
Maybe something pink?
I sat on it for awhile, and then decided on this:
Some pink and pearl colored mini ornaments.
I also added in the sparkly leaves for a little more dressing up.
And there you have it!
My not so serious bird in a cage!
Happy Thursday everyone!
