Adorbs DIY caged bird Halloween decoration
This caged bird Halloween decoration is so freaking easy and totally adorable for any home this fall season. For under $20 you’ll have a one-of-a-kind decoration that everyone will love. Let’s get started!
I originally got my inspiration for this cute bird cage from Christine McConnell, except hers is much more extravagant. But I literally made this in less than an hour and couldn’t be happier with the result. Here’s how do can do it too.
Gather your caged bird supplies
With the exception of the bird cage itself, I bought all of the supplies at the dollar store! But you can find everything you need at any craft store. Here’s the list:
- Metal bird cage (I bought mine at Michael’s on clearance)
- Mini plastic plants
- Foam disc
- Halloween ribbon
- Halloween flowers
- Floral moss mat
- Chunks of wood
- Various artificial greenery
- Plastic spiders
Decorate the base
There are no rules to how you decorate your cage. I started with hot gluing the foam disc to the inside of the bottom of the cage. This will provide a little height and depth to your cage.
Next I glued the floral moss with some adhesive spray. If you’re using a floral moss mat, you’ll need to cut out the shape of the bottom before you glue it.
Finally, I hot glued all of my embellishments including plastic plants, wood chunks and creepy spiders. One thing that I forgot to add is some tiny LED string lights to make the bottom light up.
Attach branch and bird
Next, I found a small branch from our apple tree in the backyard. I cut it to size and then hot glued the bird to the branch. Make sure you glue the branch pretty low. It it’s to high, your bird will be touching the top of the cage.
Decorate the top
Your caged bird is almost done. Now you just have to decorate the top. I took the Halloween ribbon and tied it to the top so that it draped down the sides. They I cut up the Halloween flowers and hot glue them close together near the handle. You can put as many of as little flowers as you want.
I hope this project works out for you. Let me know how your caged bird turns out. Leave your comments below.
