Banner Birdcage

Posted by on Oct 18, 2012 in burlap, burlap birds, crafts | 5 comments

I am the world’s worst at coming up with catchy titles for my blog posts.

I am more of a straight to the point kind of gal.  Thus, the terrible, yet straightforward title of this post. “Banner Birdcage.”

Really?!  What kind of a title is that?!

I wish I was better with words.  With all of my posts full of super cutesy phrases and wit.

Maybe I write these posts too late at night when I have no creative juices left!

Instead, ignore my lack of creative writing and be inspired to recreate something of your own!

Like I did for this birdcage.

I have had a “thing” for birdcages, nests and birds in general for several years now.  I found this precious little cage a few years back, and have used it here and there in my house.  I always felt like it needed something more.

Cute, but too plain.

This birdcage needed a bird!

I cut a super simple bird shape out of this “musical” paper.

I hot glued the paper bird to some burlap.

I cut around the bird leaving a bit of the burlap showing on the edges.

I hot glued the bird to a clothespin and clipped it to the birdcage.

It still needed more.

I used the scraps from the burlap and a small piece of yarn to create a tiny banner.

This went to the shop yesterday!

Life to the full,

  3. Stopping by to say Hi! I’m so with ya girl, I find the hardest thing is to come up with the post title. I try to be cute, but usually just plain and simple. Love your birdhouse and banner. If it went to the shop yesterday, I bet it’s gone already! Love you style!!!!

    xoxo, Marti

  5. HI there Melissa I’ve been waiting to see the posts with the cones and acorns but think you’re still sending the emails to old address:
    which is no longer usable. Century Link cut me off. I’m now on
    I sent you a reply but don’t think you noticed the different email address.
    I’m trying to get caught up on some really older email and posts. Really behind and found this one so decided to send you this comment so you’d know.
    Look forward to receiving posts from you again, miss seeing what you’re doing.
    Bye the way I’m so jealous of that bird cage. Love it so much and what you did with it. I have a couple cages in our bedroom but none like that. I have a metal one that even has a little stand for it. It’s on top of our chifarobe in our room. Got it in KY.
    Happy week
