New Life for a Busted Lamp Shade With Chicken Wire.

Vee Ashburn
by Vee Ashburn
3 Materials
This was a very nice shade till the cat knocked over the lamp and busted the bracket. So I love the shape and needed a basket.
Finish removing the broken bracket.
Strip all the fabric and glue from the wire frame.
Cut chicken wire for the bottom, leaving extra wire to wrap around the fram.
I cut panels as I went, 5 total. Large side and small pannel in one piece. Securing each as I worked my way around.
Wrap and secure all loose and poking wires.
Now fill and decorate!!!

    How did you get the chicken wire so good against the lamp

    Because chicken wire is not so easy to work with

    Aren't you afraid the chicken wire will attract chickens?
