I recently saw in Country Living something similar to this made with glass frames and of course we have seen gorgeous ones on different blogs. So I decided to make a small one! I used little dollar frames from Michael's and hot glued them together. Spray painted them and then added
a little wood decorative embellishment.


I ended up using 4 rectangle and 2 square frames.





After it was glued together I laid it on chicken wire to measure it. Cut it with wire cutters and pushed it up into the little house. The great thing is it just stayed up in there and didn't have to be glued or anything!

This is what it looked like right after I hot glued it together. I am sure it is not real sturdy but It won't be played with!

Thanks for looking and coming by. If you have any questions you can email me....



Blessings,

Debbie

It is so CUTE!!! I saw that in my Country Living magazine. On my sidebar of favorites CosmoGirl made one of the conservatories from the magazine a post or two (maybe several) back.

You are so clever. I just wrote a little post on chicken wire. We must be on the same page!

Hi Debbie! I saw a fun sort of cloche (think that's what she called it!) done like this one once, but I LOVE the idea of using chicken wire! What a fun and very clever idea for a country kitchen! ~tina
