White Chicken Wire Cloche

A DIY chicken wire cloche is easy to make
and a gorgeous Spring decorating must have.

Chicken wire from the hardware store never looked so good....

I began by measuring a length of chicken wire that
would wrap around this extra large jar.

I wrapped it around then folded over the wires to 
hold it together along the seam.  At the top I cut
and molded the wire to fit around the top of the jar.

Using extra wire I "sewed" a circle to hold the 
chicken wire together at the top.

At the top where the circle is I inserted 
a wooden knob then used wire wrapped around
to secure the knob.

I spray painted the whole cloche and knob,
 inside and out using a flat white spray paint.

  1. Super cute project! You make it look so simple. I would probably end up looking like I got in a fight with the chicken!

    1. Hahaha Well you do need to be careful with the wire... it can be a little sharp :)

  5. I have been meaning to make one of these for a couple of years, but never seem to get around to it. I love how yours looks with the nest & eggs, perfect for Easter.
    I saw you sharing at the Makeover Madness Link Party
