Add this Flowering Birdcage Centerpiece to your springtime display or wedding reception! Courtesy of EnWreathed, this piece is simple to craft and will spruce up your decorations with its bright, beautiful flowers and decorative birdcage.
  • 1 Protect work area

    Protect working area. Hot glue may drip and Spanish moss will shed. Plug in glue gun to allow unit to heat and be available to use in following steps.

  • 2 Cut greenery

    Using wire cutters, carefully cut all greenery and flowers at least 2-3 inches from base and set aside. These will be used later in the arrangement. Stem is wired so extra pressure may be necessary to cut through.


       

     

  • 3 Add disc

    Using the glue gun, apply hot glue to the bottom of the green foam disc and place it into the center of the bottom of the birdcage. The glue may drip because of the open structure of the cage.

  • 4 Add flowers to foam base

    Insert flowers into foam base alternating heights. Allow greenery and flower buds to extend beyond birdcage.

  • 5 Continue adding flowers

    Continue adding flowers to foam base. Apply glue if necessary.

  • 6 Add candle stick

    Hot glue top of candle stick and attach to the bottom of the birdcage.

  • 7 Add Spanish Moss

    Add Spanish Moss to the bottom of the birdcage by hot gluing in between the flowers and adding to the bottom and underside of the birdcage. The goal is to cover all glue marks and the green foam base.
