Spring Bird Cage Inspiration by DT Spardha

Hi guys!

Spardha here for today's inspiration post at the Rainbow Craftykari Blog. Hope you guys are enjoying the Spring Season, with the beautiful weather, flowers and the pretty pretty colours all around. 

Taking inspiration from the season, today's post will be a bit more "organic" {I know I can crack better jokes, I'm working on it!}




Today I have for you a beautiful spring-themed ornament made entirely with a sheet paper. These can be great centre-pieces for décor or out-of-the-box gifts. I will be keeping it at my craft desk as this season's mood-board.



To make your own birdcage, start by cutting a 3" circle from chipboard to act as a base. I covered mine with green felt fabric, but you can use paper or moss as well.

Cut a small circle for the top of the cage and stick four 1/2" strips of white paper to the centre of the circle cut-out. An easy way to make sure that your cage fits on to it's base is to wrap a 1" strip of paper around the periphery of the base and stick it's two ends so the circular strip pops out. 

Mark 8 points at equal distances on the circular strip and stick the ends of the 1/2" paper strip at each of these points. Let it dry and your birdcage is done!



Now all you have to do is unleash your creative cells and decorate it to your liking. I brought in a bit of actual nature in mine by using a dried stem as the main branch, using loads of paper flowers, fabric trims and bling to complete the look.
