Farmhouse style is an incredibly hot trend and no wonder as it blends in with all kinds of other decors.

Adding a few well-placed farmhouse style items in your home is all you need to bring the charm of farmhouse style to your living spaces.

Every season I update my home with inexpensive DIY projects for decorating. You can check out my other seasonal decor ideas and crafts here.

Building a Chicken Wire Frame for an Easy Backdrop

Cut the 1" by 2 " lumber into two 21 inch pieces and two 23 inch pieces.

Form the pieces into a square and nail the corners together. Stain the frame any colour you like. In this example, I used espresso coloured stain.

Attach metal corner braces to make the frame extra sturdy.  

Spray paint the chicken wire as the plain silver wire does not look right for indoors. 

Make sure the wire is tight and staple around the edges as you work.

Once you have the wire stretched and stapled, cut off the excess wire.

Wire the chicken motif or another figure in the middle. 

Once you place the chicken wired frame at the back of the vignette shop your home for anything you can use. You can add items from your yard or garden.

I also had some white fall decor that I placed in front. The blog post gives you some other simple ideas for farmhouse decor vignettes.

If your lacking ideas, paint some dollar store pumpkins or use a tea towel as a table runner.

Add any simple white kitchenware you have available. Milk glass or enamelware works very well.
