Bird Cage Chandelier

okie_deb(6 OK. zip 737)February 21, 2012

Sharing with you folks a link I found!

Dig out those old bird cages or (if your like me) start searching for one! I love the light play on the walls and ceiling!

The trick will be to make sure the chandelier will fit inside the cage with some room so it won't look cramped.

Enjoy!,,,Debbie

Great recycle & would look awesome on a porch or patio area, too! Loved the rope idea! TFS! Jeanne S.

What a fantastic job they did! I don't have ceilings high enough anywhere unfortunately. Still the whole thriftyness of it is inspiring.

That's very cool..

I also saw another version of a bird cage chandy on a blog recently. All the blogger had done was take a wooden birdcage, removed the bottom, and hung the bottom up against the ceiling over an existing light fixture. Really simple.

I love this idea! I have a bird cage that I made into a fairy cage with old tree bark and branches, fake barbed wire made from embroidery thread, feather birds, led light string, silk flowers, clay mushrooms that I made, a found deserted bird nest from a tree we had cut down and milk pods among other natural things. I am wondering if the light bulb would cause a fire with all of the natural things in it. Any ideas for this would be much helpful. Maybe just remove the light bulb and use the led lights? The bad thing about the led lights I have is that the batteries run down really quick.
