Bird Cage Centerpiece

I actually made this several days ago, but have not had the chance to post it until now.    I love this turquoise bird cage I found on clearance at Michaels. I also had a percentage off my entire order coupon, which brought the price down even more.  

Kara had  some leftover eggs and baby birds from her flower pot nest craft, and I thought I would use them.

I added some dried moss that we got at the dollar store


I found this adorable little bird's nest at JoAnns for just a couple dollars. It was even cheaper with my 25% off entire order coupon.  I put in some of the bird's eggs.

I then added this gorgeous bird I also found on clearance. It is normally $6.99, on sale for only $2.99. It was around $2 after coupon.   I added in a couple of Kara's leftover baby birds.

I then added a blue flower from the dollar store to the top of the cage.


I have to remind myself that it is not a real bird in a cage at times.  Isn't she giving the look of  "please let me out!"   I really do love my birdcage, and mama bird is safer in the cage than out.  The cats have a feathered cat nip toy that they really want to play with, and I think they would play with mama bird if they could.  Now to figure out the best place to display miss mama bird.

  6. Very pretty, I have a empty birdcage shaped candle holder that I've never quite known what to do with. This would be such a fun way to use it!
