Sick of the same floral centerpieces and décor in your home? Try adding a birdcage or two on your cabinets, side tables or outside on your patio. Birdcages will add a very hip and vintage vibe to your home. Remember, you can always change the exterior of the birdcage with paint; just make sure you like the shape and material of the birdcage. Read on for a few tips on how to accent your home using birdcages.

Things you need
You can find many types of birdcages from old wooden birdcages to upgraded, modern ones. Don't be afraid to mix a vintage-looking birdcage with your modern interior. It can easily be blended into your décor.
Hang two or three birdcages from your living room ceiling at different lengths each. Hang the birdcages using silk ribbons, fabrics, chains or wood vines. This will also look great outside hanging from trees.
Add a nice floral arrangement, potted plants or candles inside. Since it is a birdcage after all, feel free to stick one or two faux birds inside as well. If you decide to put a floral arrangement inside, you don't have to confine all of your flowers inside. Have some stick out of the cage to add some interest.
Use the birdcage in your kitchen! If you have a small birdcage, arrange your cupcakes or cakes inside and place the birdcage on your kitchen island or countertop. This will add a beautiful, eye-catching centerpiece to the space. Colorful fruits would also look great inside the birdcage. It is best to find something that is a contrast in color, such as green apples inside a black birdcage.
