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.

Wooden knob added to the top of the wire

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