Bird Cage Lantern

I recreated my fall bird cage lantern again this year and thought I should show how  easy it was to put together.

My lantern is one I have had for several years. It started as a Halloween lanterns housing a candle but has had a new purpose for a couple of years. I sprayed it with black spray paint a couple years ago and really need to spray it again but you know how time goes.

I added a branch or so of foliage . . .

Then added a real bird’s next from my Miss Robin post last summer.  The nest was a little wet from a rain but soon dried out.

 More foliage was added  . . .

and a cute little bird to sit on a branch.

How easy was that?

Thanks for stopping by – Judy.
