The bird cage is made from bent stub wires which are attached to a wooden icon plate. Natural eggs are placed inside the cage. A feathered bird is glued onto the top of the finished bird cage and a feather is placed as decoration next to the caged egg.

Guide step 1
1.
Bend four 50cm long stub wires around the middle of a large bottle in order to achieve a curved shape. NB: use both hands and push firmly at the curve.
Guide step 2
2.
Use a drill with a 2mm drill and drill eight holes on the wooden square icon plate. Drill the holes at a slight angle towards the centre of the icon plate, making the inserting the stub wires into the holes easier.
Guide step 3
3.
Insert two stub wires in the corner holes in the icon plate, forming a diagonal cross. Cut the ends by approx. 1cm and DON'T FORGET to place the eggs onto the icon plate before inserting the last stub wire.
Guide step 4
4.
Bend a stub wire; attach it at the top where all the stub wires are connected and twist. Trim the ends like a spire, approx. 2.5cm from the top of the cage.
Guide step 5
5.
Use a glue gun for attaching a large wooden bead onto the spire and for attaching a feathered bird on top of the wooden bead. Also use a glue gun for attaching the egg and the feather inside the cage making sure that these do not move around inside the cage.
