I took inspiration from my Mother’s old broken bits and pieces of broken jewelry to embellish a basket I made from chicken wire!.
In this FREE project tutorial, you’ll learn how to create a basket from chicken wire. These make great gift baskets and organizers too!! Oh and don’t forget the spray paint
Hardware Store Chicken Wire Baskets
by Linda Peterson
*Caution*: The chicken wire can get a little naughty and cause cuts, so be careful when cutting and wrapping the wire. Use protective gloves to be safe.
Wrap the end of the wire around the center to secure loops and create a handle. Add additional wire if needed to finish.
OPTIONAL spray with desired color of spray paint. Allow to dry. You can distress some of the paint away as we did with a little bit of sandpaper to give an aged vintage look.
