Grab some chickenwire for these easy farmhouse Fall decor ideas!

Step 1: cut down

First, grab some chickenwire and cut it down to size.

Step 2: attach

Next, create a short fat tube. To attach the tube cut down some wire and twist it to secure.

Step 3: mold

After that, mold your shape. Pinch in the bottom and press down to round it out. Pinch in the top to a point.

(it should look like the above picture).

Step 4: spray paint

Next, add some spray paint!

You can make these in all shapes and sizes! Add some fairy lights or keep them plain :)

This is the perfect centerpiece or accent to your fall mantle!

Step 1: cut down

First, grab some chickenwire and cut it down.

Step 2: roll & attach

Next, roll the chickenwire into a long skinny tube and attach it using wire.

Step 3: add pinecones

After that, add some pinecones, acorns, or other fall decor!

Step 4: cut off excess

Next, wrap the tube around so it creates a circle & cut off the excess so it doesn't have any jagged edges.

Step 5: attach ends

After that, attach the ends using wire to finish off the circle.

Step 6: add burlap

Next, add an accent bow! I used burlap but you could use any ribbon you want!

step 1: remove glass

First, grab 4 dollar store frames and remove the glass.

step 2: remove pegs

After that, clip off the pegs.

step 3: cut to size

Next, cut the chickenwire to fit the frame.

Step 4: staple

After that, attach it to the frame using staples.

step 5: trim & repeat

Next, trim any excess edges that are sticking out & repeat it on all 4 frames.

step 6: hot glue

Following that, hot glue the frames together creating a box.

Step 7: spray paint

Next, spray paint them any color of your choosing, I also distressed mine using sandpaper.

step 1: cut down

First, cut down the chickenwire.

step 2: twist

Next, create a cone shape by twisting the chickenwire.

step 3: trim

Following that, trim off the top of the cone so it's a straight edge.

step 4: add decor

After that - fill the cornucopia with some decor! I chose to fill mine with faux pumpkins and gourds but the possibilities are endless!

step 1: staple

First, staple some chickenwire to an old frame.

step 2: trim

Next, trim off any jagged edges.

step 3: measure

After that, measure the frame and create or purchase words that will fit inside it.

step 4: attach

To attach your saying - cut down some wire and pinch it in so it looks like a staple. Twist it around the ends of the letters.

step 5: add decor

Next, add some faux flowers, or other decor!

I hope this inspires you to create your own custom farmhouse decor this season!
