Recently Sonoran Living Live was kind enough to invite me on their show to demonstrate one of my “clever creations.” Andi Barness, one of the co-hosts, saw something I made my friend Shelley. Shelley was kind enough to show her my book and the rest is history. Andi, Stephanie, and Denise, along with the entire crew, were a lot of fun to work with and made me feel right at home. I dusted off my TV newsbroadcasting classes from college and got to play DIY Network on our local ABC 15 Phoenix affiliate. The feedback was positive so I thought you might want to make this creation for yourself or as a gift. While I taught the craft in 4 minutes on the live TV segment, it will take you slightly longer than that to make yourself – but not by much. I’ve included step by step photos and directions below for this repurposed frame. Here’s your opportunity to take something ugly or unuseable in its current condition and turn it into something beautiful and purposeful…your own ugly duckling story. It reminds me of my 6th grade school photo (why did I let Denise fix my hair like that for the picture I will never know!) to my somewhat improved 10th grade photo – although my kids still laugh when they look at my yearbook. In one craft you will have gone green, supported a charity and your community (if you purchase your old frame at a thrift store like I did), and make a gift/item for your home for under $5-10 (depending on the cost of the frame). So get your cluck on – it’s time to make chicken wire frames!
