Mother’s Day is fast approaching and I’ve been working on a few special gifts for the Mother’s in my life. Today I’ve got a simple DIY Mother’s Day gift idea that is sure to be a hit. Show how much you love the mothers in your life with this adorable DIY chicken wire frame gift.
Supplies needed to make your own DIY chicken wire frame:
- Chicken Wire Frame
- Chalky Finish Paint-Vintage Grey-Green
- Decorative Brass Corners
- Hot Glue
- Mini Clothespins
- Painter’s Tape
- Paint Brush
Step 1. Prep your frame by applying painters tape to your chicken wire along the line of the frame. This will protect your chicken wire from being painted.
Step 2. After the frame is taped off, apply paint to the frame. I like to apply two coats of chalk paint (letting it dry in between coats).
Step 3. After your paint is completely dry, remove the tape and use hot glue to adhere the corners to the frame. Be sure to line them up evenly so that they appear even on the frame.
Step 4. Now it gets fun! Time to personalize the frame by adding personal photos.
Use mini clothespins to secure photos to the chicken wire. You can also print out cute quotes to add to the frame as well.
That’s it your DIY chicken wire frame is done! So Simple and cute!
