Make this dollhouse scale miniature bird cage easily from thread and wire, using the same two basic weaves as the other scale miniature basket projects. The regular weave for the base, sides and doors using pairing, or twining, while the heavier decorative weave at the base and top of the sides is made with a three rod wale.

As shown in the instructions it is woven with white thread over white wire to make a bird cage for doves for a wedding scene, or plants for a conservatory. It can also be made from beige or brown thread and wire to resemble woven willow or wicker, or made of colored thread and wire and hung on a stand to become part of a woven suite for a porch or sun room.

Instructions are available for making tiny white doves or pigeons for the bird cage.
