DIY Chicken Wire Frame

Don't forget to stop by and Like my Facebook Page and Follow me on Twitter!

Get ready for a fun project!!! {Tip of the Day: You will need to wear some gloves}
Materials:
~ Old frame
~ Paint
~ Stain
~ Chicken Wire
~ Wire cutters
~ Staple Gun
~ Clothes Pins

Find an old frame or purchase one from a thrift store for a few bucks. Remove the picture, glass and matting.
Paint the frame in your favorite color.... or whatever you have sitting around.
Once dry, sand down edges of the frame.
Apply a dark stain. Make sure the stain gets in all the creases of the frame.
Again, patiently wait for it to dry and attach chicken wire with a staple gun to the back
CAREFULLY trim away excess wire with wire cutters.
I found these cute miniature clothes pins at Michael's. It was in the $1 bins by their check outs
Attached your favorite photos and you're ready to hang the frame




Thanks for stopping by!
