Project Note: For today's project, you will need a staple gun, scissors, chicken wire, and a frame.
Chicken wire has always been something we have wanted to toy with. Thanks to Lola and her obsession with purchasing frames and mirrors, we had plenty of options to choose from. Here is what we had lying around the garage:
Once you can get past the weird blue suits and pink bonnets, punch Jack and Jill in the face and get them away from your beautiful frames!!!
Before you start with the chicken wire, find a pretty color and paint your frame(s)! It doesn't really matter what kind of paint you use (spray paint and latex is what we prefer).
Project Note: Whether you painted or not, place your frame on a blanket or soft surface to ensure that you don't scratch the paint on your frame when you start stapling.
Being that chicken wire comes in rolls (like wallpaper), roll out the amount you want to use and cut it! If you try to work with the wire on the roll, there's a chance you'll end up like I did:
This is the proper way:
Once you roll out the wire you need, put it where you want it and start stapling it to the back of the frame like a crazy person! In my humble opinion, the more staples the better!
Project Note: Don't worry about what the back looks like, people only look at the front!!!!
Here are what the frames looked like once I finished stapling. IT'S THAT EASY!!!!!!
DISCLOSURE: Mr. Dump (yes I'm talking in 3rd person) paints, pounds, staples, hammers, hits, and hangs. Sarah decorates! Here is what she and YOU can do with chicken wire frames.
