Miniature Succulent Bird Cages

You’re likely aware that succulents are cute in anything, but these miniature succulent bird cages are to die for! Find out how to make your own!

I always love finding new containers to plant succulents in. I filled a large birdcage with succulents a while ago (I can’t reveal it until December because it was part of a large project I’m working on). While it was fun, it was also a lot of work. While I was out shopping I came across these miniature birdcages and thought they would make a quick and fun succulent project so I got three!

If you want to make your own miniature birdcages, here is what you’ll need:

I found my bird cages at Michael’s, but if you’d like to order online I found a set of two on Etsy that is similar. There are also these itty bitty bird cages that would be cute too! I haven’t ordered from either of these shops but they get good reviews. Hobby Lobby also carries some small bird cages. If you’re looking to make these for wedding decorations, Amazon has a set of 12 that is really cute.

Look for something that opens up from the top so it’s easy to put succulents in. It was also nice that the bars were far enough apart I could have the Calico Kitten succulent hang over the edge of the bird cage.

Instructions

Start by soaking your sphagnum moss with water. Take a small handful and place it on the bottom of the birdcage. If you want to make sure it stays put, use some floral glue to adhere it to the birdcage. If your birdcage is fairly deep, you may want to create a deeper pile of moss and add your succulent soil to it. This will help the succulents last much longer without needing to be replanted.

Use sphagnum moss as a potting medium for succulents in a birdcage

Once the moss is in place, add your succulents!

I decided to add one more succulent to fill the bird cage more. Close the lid once you have them all arranged and you’re done!

I love how these succulents look in this miniature bird cage!

While I love how they look individually, the grouping is so much more fun! You can hang these out in the garden or use them as a centerpiece for a table. I used twine to hang these in my Aunt’s garden. She has a gorgeous space full of plants and also loves birds and birdcages so I thought these would be a nice gift for her.

love these. didn’t know that there was a such thing as succulent soil. i always used potting soil. will have to check on that. looks like it would spill out of the sides. but they are so–cute. love them. Josie

I love birdcages, and the succulents are so cute. I have thought about putting some of my succulents in a birdcage but my luck isn’t going very well.
I’m in indianapolisand the weather here has to be causing the living rocks to rot, and they haven’t been watered. Several succulents also have rotted.
I use the succulent and cactus soil, but obvious some isn’t right.
I’ll enjoy looking at yours, and keep trying.

These are adorable!! And thank you for all the helpful info and tips on your site! For these birdcage, does the succulent cuttings have to have roots before planting them in the cage? Or just freshly cut or callous?
