Small Hanging Cages with Lights for the Holidays

The entire group of 3 lighted cages hanging together
Lighted Patterned Circus Tent with Nest-This piece contains a new circusy printed fabric of mine that creates the tent top.

Lovebirds on Hanging Plaque with Light-On this variation of one of my earlier pieces, I have added a wire word "Love" near the top of the wood plaque.
Lighted Circus Nest with Lovebirds-In this piece I created a tiny fabric lightshade for the bulb. There is a small rusted metal heart in the bottom center of the cage and a tiny fabric sign that reads "Circus" on the cage front.

This was an entire family project but we have finally succeeded in putting some tiny 12 volt lights in my small hanging circus cages! The lights contain replaceable screw in bulbs and they run on a 9 volt battery that is inset into the back of the piece. There is a small on/off switch at the bottom of each piece. They are now for sale on my website-www.homemadecircus.com or in my Etsy shop.

I absolutely love these little lights! They seem very you and I love that their functional .:) Anyone would be lucky to have such an artful addition to their home. I especially like the scale of these pieces as well as the somewhat haphazard look they have. Very in keeping with your other work and they have so much personality. The circus fabric seems made for these! Good luck with them!

PS I'm trying to envision homemade circus table lamps too...they might be easier for some people to work into their decor. Although I'd switch my entire room around to accommodate one of these!:)

Ok never mind the adaptibility comment. I just took another look and realized their battery operated. GENIUS!!!!
