Today's post is brought to you by the letter B, and nostalgia for Sesame Street. Birdcage, bear, and Batman, but we won't be making the bear or the Batman.
All you need is string, white glue, and that same thin cardboard we used to make Edgar Allan Poe his pink bunny slippers, plastic wrap, wire, toothpicks, and a thingamajig the shape that you want your cage to be.
After some fiddling, here it is. It looks a little dinged up, but I think that gives it character (like it's been piled under two novels, an old geode, a lamp, and a bowler hat in the depths of an intergalactic garage), and it's not bad at all for a first go!
