I am always on the look out for new and interesting ideas for planters.  Nurseries and Plant shops have lots of them, of course, but it is also great to see re-purposed items used as planters. These lovely Bird Cage Planters fit that bill just beautifully.

Charming Bird Cage Planters

Bird Cage Planters Turn Trash into Treasure.

Whether you use modern ones, or find old antique styles, when you turn unused bird cages into Bird Cage Planters, you will have a unique and unusual garden decor idea that is sure to draw compliments.

Here are a few of my favorites:

Carlene from Organized Clutter has a great vintage bird cage planted with succulents.  I love the contrast of the black iron and bright green colors.  See more of this decoration theme over at Organized Clutter.

Jeannie found the bird cage for a dollar on her way home from church and made the great transformation.  See the project at Flea Market Gardening.
