We have these amazing little rustic bird cages in our shoppe, Roost and Restore Home, and I had so much fun styling this baby up for Spring! I decided it would be best for me to share some of my personal tips on how to style a bird cage for Spring! I know sometimes we love pieces for our homes and then when we get them home we kinda get stuck with what to do with it.
You’re not alone. Let’s break down this look into a few bite size steps and you will be styling your own bird cage like a pro!
This is the cute rusty little cage we are starting with today. It presented a few obstacles, First the opening was tiny, so that automatically limited what I could fit into the space. Secondly, the bottom was not a solid form. It has slats in it so whatever we placed needed to be wide enough to sit without slipping through.
1. HANGING VINE
I began this styling with a faux hanging vine that I knew not only would fit through the little opening at the bottom but I knew I could pull from the vines to have them look like they have grown through the wire of the cage!
2. BIRD NEST
Next I was able to nestle a little DIY bird nest among the trailing vine. It added the perfect little touch of nature to the already beautiful greenery! It instantly added a a sweet little story of a mama bird to the mix. I imagined this little cage, long forgotten in an overgrown garden and a sweet mama bird saw it fit to build her nest and lay her eggs behind the safety of this beautiful little cage.
3. Vintage Card
I decided the only thing missing from this simple Spring set up was another sweet little element that could help us narrate the story of the cage. This bingo card not only fit inside perfectly, it also added instant age and peculiarity to the cage found abandoned in the garden.
Sounds lovely doesn’t it?
Thank you for letting me paint this picture for you today. I hope you have learned that styling can be a much more immersive experience if we just imagine how maybe something could be found in nature. Let that picture you paint be the guide for you and your styling.
