DIY: Chicken Wire Frame with Bud Vases

This is one of the projects that I recently made: it really wasn't hard to do and it's a great way to add seasonal color to your porch [plus I'm thinking it could look super cute inside too...].
 


Here's what you'll need:
 
A frame without any back or glass
 
Chicken wire
 
tin snips
 
Staple gun
 
small vases
 
string
 
Here's what you do:
[If needed: paint frame to desired color]
Using tin snips, cut wire to the size of the frame
Using staple guns, staple wire tightly to the back of the frame
tie string around the top of each vase leaving one side long to tie to the wire
 tie vases to desired location on chicken wire
 



 
Once you've got your vases secured, fill them with water and add season flowers from the garden [if you're a cheap-o like me] or purchase flowers and put them into the vases [if you are super rich and ultra extravagant]. Whatever works best for you ;)

 
And enjoy! I love the punch of color it adds, and I love even more that I used items that I either already had or could purchase at any thrift store [not chicken wire: you'll want to get that at any home improvement store in the garden center].
