We have these corkscrew willow trees that have thin, twity branches. The other day was nice, and I thought of making some of the branches into a little cage to go on a shelf in my son's room. It seems like I've been seeing a lot of bird cages for kids rooms lately.
So since I have a boy, I thought maybe I could make a more rustic, natural boy version.
To hang the owl, I sewed fishing line through the top of the head, and tied it to the top of the cage, and then glued his bum on the stick that's the perch.
It's on my son's shelf and I'm not in love with it.
I thought the twisty branches would make the next look really cool, but it kind of just looks creepy to me.
Although if painted black with a bat or crow in it, this would be one creepy Halloween cage. Maybe next to a jar of eyeballs this would look awesome where as it is sitting next to a giraffe and baby photo, it just seems out of place. It's going to stay, because I do like the little owl, but maybe not my best creation.
I don't know, what do you think?
