I was wondering about how to make birdcages yesterday (seriously... how does the mind wander to that anyway). I attempted to make one on my own from scratch but was so bad I won't even share it with you. "Off to the internets" I scoured and came across this easy peasy tute by Bird From A Wire. ( <-- click the link to see the tutorial)
The only diversion I took was to use an empty tuna can as my base, other than that her tutorial is as clear as you can get. The little gal inside would not have been my first choice, it was a left over piece from some other project that didn't fair so well, but she was just hanging out there on the counter so I stuck her in the cage...poor thing.
It was a nice daily diversion from my studio, which is in shambles and needs a really good cleaning out. Maybe my desire to spend more than just an hour in there will come along soon to prod me along
