10 Clever things to do with Chicken Wire

Chicken wire or if you are politically correct- Poultry Netting, has such a rustic vibe. It’s country without being red and white gingham. When you incorporate it into your home design it can really bring a level of texture and depth.

I always seem to have an extra roll of it lying around. If you don’t have any Chicken Wire
you can always buy some from Amazon.
I found some cool DIY projects to put it to good use.

1. Chicken Wire Chandelier - How great is this DIY chicken wire chandelier from Funkytime? It really doesn’t look that difficult to make. Get the full instructions here.
