trust in the magic of new beginnings!
it is transition time - high school and college graduations, new jobs and relocations - and these chicken wire frames make the perfect gift! is it a frame, or a jewelry holder, or a memory board or a place to hang your tiara...well, whatever your pleasure, be yourself!
this is a top selling pretty clever item, and i usually sell them out at craft shows before i can get them online! so i made extra, just for you.
similar projects using old picture frames can sometimes make for a very heavy product, and often leaves the wire exposed, to scratch you and your walls.
this chix wire frame is crafted to be lightweight, to fit anywhere in your home, college dorm, or new apartment (inside or out) and to protect your walls and your fingers from the pointy edges of the cut wire! it is made from layers of reclaimed yardsticks, chicken wire and velvety chalk paint.
three open frames of yardsticks are sanded and painted, with a layer of chicken wire pulled taut and sandwiched in the middle of the frame stack. the entire frame is then sanded and painted again, distressed and stamped with a quote, funny words or some inspiration.
one final coat of wax is applied for a creamy smooth finish.
the finished chix wire frame measures 19 x 19 inches, is a lean 0.75 inches thick, and it weighs in at 0.5 lbs!
