Have you all seen one of these?
A garden wired cloche? I've seen a couple in farmer hubby's magazines....usually covering plants!
I took (snuck) some chicken wire (from the chicken pen) and cut it with my handy dandy wire cutters. Snuck some 18 gauge wire (from hubby~barn) and started cutting it.
I made some wire bobbie pins to wire the cloche closed.
After I shaped it into a round cloche I smooshed the top of the wires closed so they would meet each other at the top. Then I would close it and put a finial on top.
I had decided a while ago that I wanted to make something with chicken wire...and I had also wanted to make a cloche. I see so many creative ideas out there and wanted to try this project.
Once the cloches were closed and rounded at the top I spray painted little terra cotta pots to attach to the top.
I had enough chicken wire to make three....all different heights. This was very fun and addicting. Of course hubby wasn't too impressed, but he did recognize what they were.
Tomorrow I am joining the Winter Cloche party and I will show all that I did with these and other Cloches I had around the house! Come back soon for a visit!
Today I'm playing along with:
