No Birds Allowed

Since I replaced my house numbers with my bucket numbers, I had a blank space on the front of the house next to the porch. 
 This decorative bird cage and wire metal balls were 3.00 total at my local thrift store.  I spray painted everything white and then wired the balls into the cage.  I had these seed packets I wanted to add but this area is exposed to the weather so I needed to make them 'waterproof'.

 So I slipped them into one of these page protectors and sewed around the edges then trimmed them off.  
 The silver dots are scrapbooking embellishments that I attached with E6000 glue so they'll stay put.
 No more blank wall!
