All wired up!

Hi Sweeties!  I'm happy to report that my creative mojo is back and I'm feeling like blogging about it!  I guess you could say that I'm "wired-up!"  Literally wired up....

First you take some chicken wire (ooh this stuff can be difficult to work with) and shape it into a cloche like form.  Gather it at the top and secure with wire.  Start stuffing in some pretty stems and sticks, add a burlap bow and you're off to a good start....
Add a little song bird(get sheet paper)....put him on a nest and wire him into the chicken wire cloche...
So far, he's lookin good....Oh, add a little tag too for extra cuteness.

Add a thrift store glass cake plate and some hydrangeas from your garden......and things are looking even better.

You could spray paint the chicken wire if you want but I was too lazy to paint mine.  It's still purdy, don't ya think?


I'm joining the party at Coastal Charm's Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays!

Very pretty, Sissie! I love the bird/nest you attached and that tag is great. So glad you got your creative mojo back! : ) I didn't think you'd lost it, but I guess we all feel that way from time to time.

NanaDiana said...

I love it, Sissie. I like it natural better than painted, I think. I will NOT be working with chicken wire myself. My only experience with it left me with scars...what do you mean I'm a klutz? LOL I will admire yours from a distance though- xo Diana

It does look purdy ! Now I'm going to have to see if I can find me some chicken wire an try that !

Dorthe said...

A wonderful idea, and so pretty ,dear Sissie.I love things in chicken wire, but often don`t want to work with it because of its nasty wire-but truly you can do so many wonderful things with it, like you did here.And the bird and hydrangea are the sweetest decoration.
Hugs and love,Dorthe
