Antique Altered Bird Cage

Hello Lovely Friends,

I have a little altered home decor project to share.  
I have combined lots of Twiddleybitz loveliness with The ScrapCake 'One Moment In Time' collection and some beauty with Manor House Creations blooms.  
I first started with a Twiddleybitz Antique Bird Cage which was painted black. Twiddleybitz have some new 'powder dusts' which I have been trying out.  I was able to add easily a touch of metallic, rustic glam with some of the bronze powder dust mixed with the binding solution. I found that you don't need much as a little bit goes a long way.
Some 'Chicken Wire' was attached over the top of the cage and the flowers were attached to this.  I first started by wrapping a couple of Prima Vines around the top.
The cage from the Twiddleybitz Small Pedestal Bird Cage was also adapted to sit at the front of antique birdcage roof - a bit like an attic effect.
A flourish door from the Twiddleybitz Opening Gates set was added to the side. A little sentimental tag from The ScrapCake 'One Moment In Time' collection was added to the front.
A few gorgeous Manor House Creations flowers were incorporated to create a cascading canopy of floral beauty over the cage top.
A Winter’s Song bloom creates a focal point.

As well as from behind
Some coordinating hand made flowers were also added to the mix along with some pretty Gratitude blooms that have also tucked in to the floral arrangement. 
The top part of a filigree stand was adapted to add a decorative accent at the top.

The small pedestal stand sits inside the cage with a little arrangement of altered wooden spools and some more blooms.
A Birds on a Branch piece was cut up and the twig elements tucked into the floral arrangement.
