Use What You Got! Inspiring DIY Home and Garden Decor

The Idea: Chicken Wire Photo Display

Cut picture frame or household moulding to desired size of display area, spray paint, and let dry. Measure chicken wire to length and width of moulding and cut to size. Nail the top of frame into wall, using a level to make sure it is straight. Staple the chicken wire into place, and nail the remaining frame pieces along the edges. Use clothespins to hand snapshots, art, etc.

The Blogger:

Why It’s Smart: This is an easy photo display that you can make as big as you want, that also allows you to swap out pics whenever the mood strikes. (A lot easier than redoing a gallery wall of frames.)

Level of Difficulty: Medium. Best done with a partner who can hold the wire in place while you staple. Takes around three hours.
