Bird Cage Planter UpcycleWhat you need:
- Metal bird cage
- Spray paint of choice – I used Color Shot in Island Girl
- Coconut liner – pick a size close to that of your bird cage
- Any kind of plant – I went with a drippy ivy. Succulents would also be gorgeous!
- Clean your bird cage of any dust, debris, or loose paint.
- Spray paint the bird cage. Use several thin coats for best results and to avoid trips. Here are my spray painting tips!
- Once dry, insert your coconut liner. Trim with scissors if necessary.
- Add soil and your plant. If choosing a “drippy” plant, pull some of the stems through the wire bars for a cool effect!
- Hang or place in a sunny spot and enjoy!
