Junk Bird Cages
Salvaged or found accents and accessories for your rustic garden
Junk Bird Cages can hold much more than just a bird; how about a special collection of seashells, driftwood, or even nuts and bolts, or a bird made from old tools wired or bolted together?
They can be planted with succulents, displayed with a salvaged birds nest or two, or to protect special plants from chipmunks or rabbits.
They can be used as a way to display your eclectic collections, or just to enjoy as is.
There is something really appealing about bird cages, the rustier and more beat up the better.
Here are a few in my garden;
Rusting and rustic, this metal wire bird cage was meant to display ferns or succulents in, never a bird

Missing a handle? Use a rustic wiggly twig...
Victorian Style bird cage, with a winged inhabitant - a cherub
Bird cages can keep creatures out, just as well as holding them captive - the Lithops must be very sweet and tasty to the mice and chipmunks and the bird cage protects them from damage
A bird cage with a plastic base - what should I use that for?
Why not a mold for a hypertufa planter?
