Have you noticed that chicken wire frames are all the rage? But don't you love them? There are so many alternative uses for them... I'll share some of my favorites and inspirations with you!

There are tons of ideas out there to get you started with making your own chicken wire project. Now let me share my own chicken wire project with you...
I apologize, I got a little too excited and forgot to take the before picture of the frame that I bought from a yard sale for .50 cents. I decided to give it a base coat of antique white acrylic paint first. I wasn't too careful, I wanted it to have a shabby chic look to it.
Stapling on the chicken wire
You will need tin snips to the the chicken wire to fit your frame and clean up any loose ends that hang over the frame. Luckily, the main had a pair for me to use. To secure the chicken wire to the back of the frame, I used a regular stapler - and it worked!
And now the finished product. Sorry If I missed a few steps here and there. My camera was not cooperating with me again...
So there you go. I'm sorry that I don't have a "real" tutorial to share with your but I believe that you can probably find one somewhere on the internet... Or do what I do and just create as you go... learn from the mistakes & have fun!
Thanks for stopping by!!!
