Parisian Flea Market Birdcage Terrariums

You don’t need to wait for Spring to “sprung” to add some bohemian color and charm to your décor. Picture a Parisian flat in the 1920s: Long strands of pearls, brass cigarette holders, beaded dresses… and these fabulous birdcage terrariums. They put a girly twist on the modern indoor garden. Filled with moss, airplants and maybe a faux butterfly or two, they make a sweet centerpiece for your next party or permanent decoration for your dresser or mantel. The best part? This piece looks expensive and sophisticated but it’ll only cost you about $20!
