DIY Farmhouse Easter Birdcage

Hey there everyone!

Today I'm sharing my DIY Farmhouse Easter Birdcage. 

I haven't done one of these before, but on Friday, when we were all home and the kids were doing their online school work, I grabbed my birdcage and some Easter goodies and some greenery and now I have an Easter Birdcage! 🙌

That's one good thing about not being able to go out, I am utilising more of the things I already have on hand and restyling them into new things.  I think it is important to try to keep busy and do things you enjoy while you are at home and while the world is so uncertain.  I hope by sharing some of my ideas I can inspire you and bring some joy into your homes too. 💝

So, here's what I did ...

First, I grabbed my white decorative birdcage. I've had the birdcage for years. We have a love/hate relationship. I use it to decorate, then I banish it to the garage for a while, then it gets brought back in, then banished again. I'm not sure I want to keep it, but I can't throw it away. Do you have items like that? 


With the empty cage, I wanted to create some layers so I started with two small potted plants from Adairs. One I kept in the pot (the brown cardboard looking pot on the left), and the other I pulled apart and layered on the base of the cage to recreate almost like a forest bed.


Next I shaped some coconut fibre to construct a cute little bird's nest, adding some faux brown and white speckled eggs.  The nest I positioned on the right towards the back of the cage, slightly tilted forward.


Then I added this sweet little ceramic bunny.  (If you have a ceramic bird I think this would also look awesome.)


Next, I draped some faux bauble type greenery over the outside top of the cage so that it hung down inside the cage as well, giving the cage a fuller appearance inside and like an overgrown appearance on the outside.


Lastly, I added a couple of real sticks to the inside back of the cage.  Again, just to add a bit of interest and to fill any blank areas in the cage.  


I think it turned out pretty well, considering I used all items I had on hand and not a penny spent! 😊
 

I plan to display it on the bottom shelf of my hall table, with a few faux plants I got from Early Settler.


I hope I've added a bit of inspiration to you your day.

Stay Safe,
