What can you do with Chicken Wire?

April 12, 2010

For some time I have been drooling over vintage dress forms. I love the simplicity and aged beauty of these treasures. I also love that it is a display form where beautiful necklaces, millinery, vintage lace, handmade aprons and clothes can be displayed. So recently I ran across a blog that had made one out of chicken wire.... So I had to try my hand at making one of these beauties. I so love how it turned out and it fits right on top of my vintage milk can so I can display my aprons. (It wasn't planned that way, but I found out that it sat just perfectly on it.... gotta love that!)

I can't believe how easy it was and I am so delighted with my chicken wire dress form. Since I love to decorate with chickens, this was a perfect fit for me. It is amazing what you can do with a little chicken wire, paint and a few bends of the wire.

I would love to see what you have done with chicken wire... let me know!!
