How to make a chicken wire wreath step by step
Paint over the shape with the paint of your choice – this project was created using white paint, but you can experiment with the color choices of your liking!
Once the paint has dried, take the chicken wire and place it over your pumpkin shape. Cut out the shape of a pumpkin using pliers or wire cutters.
Secure the chicken wire to the pumpkin base with the help of a hot glue gun. Glue the wire to the edges of the shape on multiple points.
Cut some wire pieces, which will be used on the edges of the pumpkin shape to create the inner lines.
Take your jute twine and wrap it tightly around the wire pieces in order to achieve a rustic look. Secure the ends with hot glue.
