I got this frame with no glass in it at the Habitat for Humanity re-store for $2 a while back thinking I wanted to do this project sometime. I painted it white, laid out the chicken wire (hard to see against the cream carpet. Sorry), stapled onto the back (requires a little muscle strength), and trimmed off the excess wire. Done!
I hung it by my desk replacing the old window I had hanging there and attached favorite pics, a calendar for the month of May, a magazine clipping of flowers for a future flower garden, and fabric strips.
You should make one! You won't be sorry.
