Christmas Decorating with Vintage Birdcages

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

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 bird cage.

How pretty is this mini Christmas tree with lights?

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

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

These are all such pretty ideas but my favorites are the one filled with ornaments and the one with the partridge on her nest.
