I’ve finally finished the details to my little girl’s ‘big girl’ room. So far, I’ve created a ‘SISTER’ sign and a new lamp. For the last project, I made her two chicken wire organizers- one for her hair bows and one for her jewelry.
- Frame in the desired size (measure the area where it is going and find a frame in the appropriate size). I found one in bronze and spray painted it white.
- Chicken wire remnants
- Wire cutters
- Hot glue gun/hot glue
- Fabric the size of the frame
Spray paint the frame the correct color if it’s not already.
Cut the chicken wire the size of the inner lip of the frame. I wanted to staple the chicken wire to the inner lip of the frame, but it was too thin. So I had to hot glue it instead. After doing a little research, I discovered that my friend Lindsay had the same problem! This step is by far the most difficult. Cutting the wire and gluing it is hard on the fingers! Chicken wire is pliable, but it’s still not easy to glue to the thin part of a frame. Try hard to glue the chicken wire on straight.
Now it’s time to create the fabric backing. I knew that my little girl would be stabbing the wall with her barrettes, so I wanted something to protect the wall. Cut a piece of cardboard a little larger than the frame opening. Wrap the fabric remnant around the cardboard and hot glue it in place.
To finish up, hot glue the fabric-wrapped cardboard to the back of the frame. Now you’re ready to hang the holder! I used small ‘S’ plant hanger clips on the chicken wire for bracelets and other things that wouldn’t stay by themselves.
