About Me

Fort Benning, GA, United States
I'm an army wife, working mom of 2 kids, and a dancer for fun! My husband Tim works the at the combatives school here on fort benning. I work for MWR at Outdoor Recreation as their admin assistant...I absolutely LOVE my job I couldn't have found anything better! My daughter, Kennedie, was born in January of 04 and our son, Cale, was born June of 09 - that's right they are 5 and a half years apart! Kennedie is VERY involved in dancing. Cale is well on his way to become a fighter - daddy is already working on his punching and kicking techniques! This blog started out as a recipe sharing venture but now it's going to turn into a more "granola" way to live. Cheap recipes more homemade recipes and repurposing things. I'm a crafter at heart so i'm going to throw some of that in their too!

Chicken wire frame

This was a fairly cheap and easy project I was pretty surprised when I was finished with it how it wasn't as time consuming as I thought it would be.  I got these white frames from a scrapbooking store that was going out of business for $7 a peice.  Here is the before and after I spray painted them.
 I got the chicken wire from lowes for 2.98 for a 10 foot roll - it would last me through all three of the frames I have.  I was NOT shy on using the staples, I think i have a staple in ever cross section.
 Now that I have it all stapled down....
I can snip off the excess - this is probably the most time consuming part of it all!
 All cleaned up from the stray wires, and I had to add some touch up paint because I scratched it on my cardboard.
 You can use any kind of backing to hang this - mine didn't already have claw clips like I would have liked but I did have these on hand.
 Tied my ribbon to the top and then reinforced with a staple
 I used paperclips to hang the pictures but you could use just about anything.  Even binder clips would be cute!
