Starting with a vintage window frame from the flea market and adding some chicken wire, you can make this country theme window wall art! It’s perfect for farmhouse style decorating.
Here is a fun craft, I decided to make. Now let me say I found this old window at a Flea Market for ONLY $1 the other day! The glass was already out of it, and I thought, WOOHOO what a find!!
This whole craft only cost me $2! Note that most of this stuff I had around the house. The only thing I had to buy was Chicken Wire and the window!
Once the window wall art is completed, it can be used to display photos, vintage kitchen utensils, favorite family recipes or anything else you would like to feature.
Here is how to make this fun craft.
DIY Country Window Wall Art
- Vintage Window
- Chicken Wire
- Small Nails (or a stapler)
How to make your vintage window wall art:
Start with an old window – with the glass taken out of it!
Take a scraper and take off the paint that is loose. After you get all the loose paint off, you can choose to leave it how it looks or you can paint it however you would like. In my case I chose to keep it with some of the old paint on it, and make it look old. It fits right in with other farmhouse decorating.
Cut your chicken wire to fit around the frame. Once you have the chicken wire the right size, you can take a stapler or a hammer and small nails and secure the chicken wire around the border of the frame! I used hammer and nails because that is what I had on hand.
Then once the wire is secure you can hang it on your wall! I decided to put old kitchen utensils in it, along with a few pictures, and a recipe.
You can put whatever you want for your decor. I used clothespins to secure the pictures on the wire.
It’s that simple! I love a fun and easy decor DIY project.
I would love to hear your thoughts on this project, or ideas on what else you would put in the frame as decor!
