White Chicken Wire Cloche

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

Plain old chicken wire never looked so good!


DIY chicken wire cloche with nest

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.  

The jar was just a big pickle jar I was using to mold the chicken wire. 

You can use anything you can find depending on the cloche size you need. 

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.

This wire was actually the wire that came wrapped around the chicken wire roll.

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

Wooden knob added to the top of the wire

I spray painted the whole cloche and knob, inside and out using a 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 :)

  2. Your cloche turned out awesome....a couple of years ago I made one and used a wood knob like the one you used...great minds think alike :-)

    Hugs and Kisses,

    1. Well thanks Ana! It is a fun and easy project... I'm happy with the white spray painted look too :)

  3. Love it! I have the chicken wire...knobs and white spray paint, so it looks like I ready to tackle this project.


  4. Love this Susan! I have some chicken wire laying around so I'm definitely going to try this. =) Can you believe how cold it is again??? Argh!


  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.
