Halloween birds 'n' cages

I love Michael's craft store, LOVE it! I go a few times a month and always find something I can use. This time I found these little bird cages.. little and in the $ section!  Not colors I am interested in but they also had spray paint on clearance for 99 cents!!

I am in a Halloween mood already so I spray painted 1 silver, 1 alluminum (color on the can) and 1 black!

And I had a little bird and bat already, I just grabbed the little owl and hoped he was small enough to fit!
Stuck em in there and put one on the tree, the tree is new and hasn't been out of the package enough for the limbs to relax, but you get the idea!  Here are some pics of them done, I am excited to actually get Halloween stuff out soon, 2 weeks!

  1. I love this idea! I'm going to go Michaels near me tomorrow to see if my store has those. I would like to spray them black and put a pumpkin inside. Then use them as both a place card holder and a favor for my girl scout troop's Halloween party.

  2. That is a super cute idea! I will have to collect my bird cages and do something spooky with them...so cute! Come say hi...

  5. Those are great. I recreated a few bird houses last year too. I work at michaels.. buy the clearance spring bird houses for next to nothing and paint them up for Halloween.
    Thanks for sharing.
