A couple weeks ago, a few of us got together at Hodgepodge to construct chicken wire cloches. I made my first one a few years ago when I participated in a design challenge. We were all given the same product and we had to arrange a display, but we couldn’t use any other vendor’s merchandise—only stuff we made or found at flea markets. That’s when I had the idea to make a cloche out of chicken wire.
They are great for display, but also serve a practical purpose. Nita will be using hers to protect young plants from deer.
We used chicken wire, macramé rings and a loose leaf binding ring from an office supply shop. We had a lot of fun and collaborated to improve the construction process. Here are a few pictures:

Here’s Ryan and another Kendall (what are the odds).

Another fun evening with friends!
