Farmhouse Look on Lamp Shade With Chicken Wire

I just like chicken wire, what can I say, so when I say a chicken wire lamp project from Adrianne at Happy Hour Projects, I reeeallly wanted to make one, too.
Lamp shade wrapped with chicken wire.
I started out with a plain old jane old lamp/lamp shade.
I measured the lamp shade and then cut a piece a good 6" larger than needed.
I wrapped it around the lamp shade and secured with craft wire.
I trimmed off the excess.
And then I tucked the chicken wire to the inside of the lamp shade **** making sure to wear protective gloves for this part.
Chicken wire can be tricky to work with, but I was able to do this in an afternoon.
The same general technique could be used for a round style shade.
I like it!!

    Where can I find the Old Jane Lamp Shade? I’ve a couple of tables and I need that type of a shade. Does it come in different width and length?
