DIY Marinated Chicken Wire Frame

Chicken wire is not just for chicken coop anymore! We're adding it to our crafts! We used it with the "Marinated Chicken Fabric" collection to make this unique wall hanging.

Here's what you'll need...

• 1 - 12' x 12" Frame
• 1 - 12" x 12" Chicken Wire
• 1 Panel of Marinated Chicken Fabric or other fabric of your choice.
• 1 Bunch of Sunflowers
• 1 Fabric Scissors
• 1 Fast Grab Tacky Glue

Let's get started...

1. Cut out one of the 12" x 12" squares from the Marinated Chicken fabric panel. Make sure to cut slightly larger than 12" x 12" because you will need to wrap it around the back side of the frame.

2. Take the frame apart. Using the cardboard part of the frame, wrap and glue down your material and allow it to dry completely. You could put something heavy on it (like a heavy pan) to hold the fabric down while it's drying.

3. Once dry, take your chicken wire and wrap around the material. We did not glue down the wire. We simply bent the chicken wire around the cardboard.

4. Now place the fabric and wire back into the frame and secure down with the back portion of the frame. You may have to wiggle and press to get the chicken wire to fit back into the frame.

5. Cut your sunflower and glue to the bottom corner of the frame. Tip: We cut the extra plastic under the flower to make it as flat as possible. We also glued the layers of the sunflower bunch before we glued to the frame to make sure it does not come apart.

6. Lay flat to dry completely. Now you are ready to display.
