Another bird cage planter!

In my last post I showed you what I did with my birdcage planter this summer.

I put it in our new swingset garden, using the same rusty white table that I've used in the past.
But this year, I broke all the home garden decorating rules and put (collective gasp!) FAUX ferns inside....

Last year, when it was up on the deck, it was filled with colorful flowers. (Here are the instructions on how I made mine.)

Ro Magnolia left me a comment that she had created her own birdcage planter after seeing mine. You must visit her at Soft Winds and Roses to see the birdcage planter she created out of this GORGEOUS old bird cage. Just look at the domed shape on top! An old beauty for sure! You'll love the transformation!!!

Hi Donna, I love your birdcage planter, and I love what you did with the old swingset - you're so creative! I love visiting blogs where people show what they have done with this and that! Come on by and see what I did with my birdcages too!
Have a great week,
