Christmas Decorating with Vintage Birdcages

November 24, 2014

Last year after Christmas I shared my ideas on how to decorate
with vintage birdcages. This year I thought it would be fun to 
explore more closely the many ways you can use birdcages
specifically for Christmas décor. 

Last Christmas I filled mine with red ornaments I scored at Goodwill. 
My birdcage was picked up at Michigan's Longest Garage Sale.

I added a pre-made burlap ribbon to the top of the cage.

I thought it worked well in my foyer vignette. But I think there
are many other ways I could have used it in my Christmas décor.

 I've always wanted to string lights inside a birdcage.

How pretty is this mini Christmas tree with lights?

The doves, simple greens and pinecone turn this
birdcage into a nature-inspired Christmas vignette.

Now here's a quick and easy decorating secret.
Just place some bird-shaped place cards into your birdcage
and place a red ribbon on top. Can't get more simple than that!

Decor & You
Okay, maybe I misspoke. Here's another example showing how
 to use natural elements such as greens, berries and pinecones to
liven up your Christmas birdcage.

While perusing the many birdcage images found online, I came up with
another idea for a Christmas birdcage. Just fill one with festively
wrapped Christmas presents.

There might already be one like it out there in blogland, but if there is I
didn't find it. If I get around to filling mine with presents this year
I'll be sure to share it with you.

Love all these creative ideas! I have two vintage cages and they'll probably both get filled with ornaments this year.
