Bird in the Cage...

I love using junk for collage and assemblage!  I had a vintage bingo cage which was broken off its base, and thought it would make a cute little bird cage.  I used an old erector set piece for a base- attaching it was a little more difficult than it looks, as the cage end wires tend to separate...thanks to my patient husband for his help with that!   A craft bird nest with some moss, old wood bingo balls for eggs, and an old "bird" flash card topped it off!  My first post...hope you like it!

Awesome post - oh so cute - and very clever use of the bingo cage - as well as the other elements in this project.

Can't wait to see what you come up with next!

Thanks for sharing.
