Banana Stand with Love

I admit it.. I purchased a banana hanger! 

Why??  You ask.. well, honestly I'm just NOT sure!  I guess I just pictured myself hanging my bananas until they were ripe.. but um.. unfortunately, it seemed that MY
banana bunches were always TOO heavy and the stand would tip over...
So what do you do with a leftover banana stand you ask? 
Well, why not make it into a bird cage stand for V-day? 

So here is mine..
First I hit it with a fresh coat of paint.. everything looks better with one right?
Then I made my bird cage using thin strips of white paper and an old egg drop soup container.

Then I hung the bird cage from the banana stand to make a Banana Stand with LOVE!

And one more shot.. just because!

Pretty cute, huh?  I LOVE it!

  5. The cage is so much cuter than a bunch of bananas. :) Thank you for linking up to the K.I.S.S. blog bash.

  6. haha, very cute and a great way to reuse the stand! I heard that it's better to rip the bananas apart because if one rots, they all do. Anyway, the bird cage is super cute!

  7. pretty darn crafty! and I so love your love bugs header :)

  8. Great idea!! I have a banana hanger sitting around my house that I am sure is just dying to be a bird cage hanger too! I love this idea!! :) Thanks for linking it up at Sassy Sites for our Trash to Treasure Tuesday! Have a wonderful weekend! xoxo!
