Birdcages, Birdhouses and Nests

Bring the outdoors in with bird habitats. Decorate your interior space with a hanging birdcage and place an artificial bird inside. Drape an artificial ivy or flower garland around it and hang in a corner. Mount an artificial bird on the perch of a decorative birdhouse and stand it among a group of houseplants. Paint the birdhouse with vines or flowers and add some moss for a realistic design to add colour to the green setting. Tuck a craft-store bird's nest between groupings of houseplants and sit a bird and some fake eggs inside.

Wreaths and Branches

Decorate your walls or front door with wreaths for every holiday and year-round. Make a grapevine wreath with pine cones, berries and evergreen branches for winter and add a bright red cardinal or a pair of doves for added pop. In spring, make a flowering wreath with birds common to your region. For indoor decor, hang a bare tree branch on a wall and sit a bird or two. Add some moss to look like a nest in progress. Add faux eggs or an artificial baby bird to the nest.

Floral Displays

Make year-round shelf, wall and tabletop displays that incorporate flowers and artificial birds in the design. Fill a basket or watering can with real or artificial flowers and perch a bird or two on the handle or along the rim for spring decor. Stack pumpkins, gourds and fall flowers on a hay bale, and nestle a few crows in between for a fall setting. In winter, fill a tray or shallow basket with pine cones, poinsettias and greens. Sit a few birds in the display to bring the outdoors in. Add birds on tall wire stakes to a vase filled with sunflowers or perch one on the edge of a wooden bowl filled with short-stemmed flowers.

Wall and Shelf Decor

Create a variety of decorative items to sit on shelves and tabletops or hang on the wall. Top a wooden or papier-mache box with a nest surrounded by spring flowers. Glue some moss, twigs and leaves on a wooden plaque to create a natural wall hanging. Add a pair of birds and faux eggs to the nest. For interesting shelf displays, create an arrangement of birds on pedestals of different heights. Use scrap lumber, old wooden candlesticks, dowels and pieces of picket fences as pedestals. Stain or paint them to coordinate and glue different birds on top. Arrange them in a grouping for decorative impact.
