A trip to Beverly’s or Michael’s crafts usually means a visit to the sale section. My eye was caught by the decorative bird cage. It is a timeless buy.  A few weeks ago so I picked up a few and finally figured out what to do with them!

You can use them as bird feeders! Just put a saucer filled with seed inside-they love it! When you decide to use them as bird feeders keep in mind where they are located. A wrought iron decorative bird cage will fair better in wetter weather than a wooden one.

A great unconventional but beautiful use of a bird cage is to display your plants. Stuff it will smaller potter plants or use is as a base for a lovely crawling vine. Your bird cage will be a lovely plant holder for your spring and summer blooms.

Mosquitoes and other bothersome bugs can be kept away by using your bird cage as a place for your citronella candles. Not only does it keep the bugs away, it is a beautiful BBQ decoration and keeps candles in a safe place. You can use this same idea of putting candles inside your decorative bird cage in your home. It makes a romantic luminary.

It’s fun to “re-purpose” things! Even an empty bird cage can be appealing. Apply a little creativity and don’t be afraid to try out any ideas for your bird cage. It is a multi-purpose decoration that can last all year long.
