About: Hi Crafters, I am passionate about DIY and make many objects, mainly lamps. My favorite materials are wood and metal, don't hesitate to take a look at my site.

Intro: Bird Cage Lamp

DIY birdcage lampshade to hang on a lamp stand.

Here is the list of the necessary equipment:
bare structures for the lampshade

  • a toasting roll
  • spray paint
  • a large LED bulb
  • birds

You will also need some tools:

  • Wire
  • Cutting pliers
  • Gloves
  • Possibly a clamp for holding the wire mesh to the structure

Step 1: Fix the Screen to the Lampshade

Using clamps and/or some pieces of wire.

Step 2: Once the Structure Is Fixed

Pass a long wire with a tight squeeze, as if you wanted to “sew” the screen to the shade.

Step 3: Then, Cut Out the Remaining Wire and Cut the Pieces of Wire As Close As Possible.

Step 4: Result

Step 5: Paint in 2 Times

leave to dry half an hour between the two layers approximately, copper color here but it is also very nice in silver or old gold.

Step 6: Fix the Lamp on Its Foot or Suspension

Placing the bulb, then add the birds to the grid. The other option is to lay them on branches or chopsticks that you can also bend.

    That's an adorable idea for a shade! I have some little birds like those that are hair clips and I love them :)
