Left over from the house stucco project was a pile of Chicken wire.
Chicken wire is one of those things that when you see it
you just want to build something.
It has so much potential. Original use: Chicken coops.
Such a versatile building material.
I’ve never used Chicken wire in home décor projects before,
but thought it might be interesting to craft with it.
So here it is!
My DIY chicken wire basket I put flowers in.
A cute partner for a pretty pink chair… a chicken wire basket full of pink lilies!
A little rustic and refound!
Such a simple project that maybe took 15 minutes and it’s complete.
Here’s what you’ll need: Chicken wire shaped to a cone.
I started with a square piece of chicken wire. Lay it flat and rolled it to a cone shape.
Using a pair of needle nose pliers, I wrapped the cut ends of the chicken wire around to fasten the cone shape in place.
You may have to close up the end of the cone as you might have some sharp ends remaining.
Simply tuck the lose ends inwards using your needle nose pliers.
Attach wire, ribbon, or even jute string for a hanger.
Wrapped newsprint around the bouquet. When hanging, use a little jar or a small plastic container to tuck inside the wire basket to water the flowers.
Add your favorite flowers and voila your project is complete.
To hang, I simply attached a bright pink ribbon.
Hang it on your front door, but if you don’t have a front door like me, right now…
Hang it from your garden gate or maybe an old squeeze chute out in the horse pasture.;)
I am loving it! You know I might make a few more!
Maybe a new obsession! Who knew!
