Re-Using A Bird Cage

Decorative bird cages are really popular for weddings, but what do you do with it after the big day? You could try and use it as an actual bird cage, but most of these things are meant for decor only. Personally, I'm a fan of the bird-cage-turned-lamp idea. It's an eco-friendly way to upcycle your wedding decor and it would add quite a charming touch to your home decor.

Shout out to Seattle based Emerald Green Weddings, an eco-friendly wedding consultancy. They recently opened their virtual doors. Welcome EGW!

*Sigh* Although they aren't earth friendly, these colorful pouches are really freakin' cute!

Loving: (how did they snag that sweet domain name!?)

Giveaway Alert! The folks over at Recycled Bride are giving away a beautiful Reem Acra dress.

DIY Fun: Awesome DIY Ketubah kit, found at Something Old, Something New.

Design Inspiration: Here's an idea for all those old, non CFL light bulbs.

I was going to use moss terrariums as my centerpieces, in Moroccan lanterns.
Do you have suggestions on how to get it done? I'm afraid it will be a DIY project :)

I love the idea of putting plants in the birdcages, it reminds me of the movie Great Expectations when they meet in the garden.

Great idea! I heart bird cages and this would be very chic in a house or garden!

I love how you can use birdcages for an array of different things ranging to florals, lanterns, and fruit basket gifts. They are so cute and vintage!
