DIY Chicken Wire Frame Tutorial

I kept seeing this pin on Pinterest.  Which was basically just a link to a photo, no instructions how to make it or anything like that.  I have had an old frame kicking around the house from a friend.  It originally had a broken corner, that I glued back together but I still couldn't figure out what I wanted to do with it.

Last night, I decided to attempt my own chicken wire frame.  Basically I cut my chicken wire a little bigger than the hole in the frame (I was able to cut mine with scissors).   If your chicken wire is in a roll like mine you will have to kind of pull and stretch it out to flatten it.  Then secure with thumb tacks!

If you don't have a loop in the chicken wire you may want to wrap some of the excess around the tack.

Finally, secure whatever you would like to on it, using strong magnets or clothespins!

Check back later this week, I will have a tutorial on how to make the lovely little book page flower in the lower right hand corner!
