You can make these,

Chicken Wire-Like Cloche with wire baskets from Dollar Tree!Chicken Wire Cloche

Welcome to my version of wire cloches made from $1 baskets from Dollar Tree. 

(Check out this one from The Gathering Place)

Chicken Wire Cloche

The tall one is a trash can and the small one is just a small basket that had a handle on it.

I used wire cutters to remove the handle.

Dry brushed, leaving an aged appearance on both baskets and the handle with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White.

Drawer pulls from Hobby Lobby.  I used the dremel tool to remove the excess part of the screw.

Repurposed the handle, that was removed from the top of the basket.  (I forgot to take a before picture.)

 I find myself thinking of ways to use every part of something that I repurpose.  Do you?

It reminds me of mini of chicken wire.

The question that has me baffled ~ Why do things look better under cloches?

“I’m a plastic pear, look at me!”

And when there’s a group of us, we really impress!

If you have something screaming for attention, put it under a cloche.

  10. Fabulous! I’m definitely copying this. I’ll pin it, too.

  11. Love them. You’re being featured! Great job Debbie as always! 🙂

  12. I just loved this idea, not sure if it was the ease of doing it or the cost. Both obviously and the look is wonderful and versatile. The problem was finding these baskets since the pictures of these things hit the blogworld and pinterest. After checking 3 discount stores, I finally found these at ‘DEALS’. They just got them in! I grabbed several because I knew my friends and daughters would want them too. Got the knobs at Hobby Lobby and we’re good to go. What a great idea; thanks for sharing this!

  13. Those are great Debbie. Such a perfect thing for spring!
    ..and I made the switch from GFC to Linky Followers!

  14. Love these adorable cloches. Would you mind sharing where you found the gingham background to your photo? I am starting to play around with graphics and find that it’s really fun. I found a high resolution white background but nothing else so far. Thanks and have a great weekend! p.s. I hope to have time this weekend to do the whole Linky Follower thing. What a great idea…

  15. Debbie,
