I’m So Lucky! Chicken Wire Home Decor

Just about everyday I say to my husband, “How did we get so lucky?” There still might be a lot on our wish list, but we are incredibly blessed with four fantastic children. When it comes to decorating for St. Patrick’s Day, I couldn’t think of a better way to add some family fun to our decor than with pictures of those kiddos. After a silly photo shoot, complete with green mustaches and rainbow lollipops, I created this chicken wire piece:

I pulled my favorite green embellishments and papers from the Citrus Bliss collection, as well as a little bit from Atlas. After matting my photos, I began creating tags and cards with the patterned papers, frames, die-cuts, and wood veneer. I love this particular tag. I layered paper, die-cuts and some gold thread and sequins from my own stash onto a shipping tag. My little Addie loved her lollipop!

This tag is also a favorite. The clear acrylic tag is printed with gold triangles and the perfect home for the first part of my title: lucky us.

I wanted to add a rainbow to my collection of tags, so I used this chipboard sticker from the Atlas collection. Because the airplane at the end of these colored arcs didn’t coordinate with my theme, I simply covered it up with a photo. With a little creativity, stretching your supplies to cover other themes is easy.

Once my tags were complete, I attached them to the framed chicken wire with safety pins, plain mini clothespins, and gold-glittered clothespins. When it’s time to decorate for the next holiday, I can simply remove the tags, put them in safe keeping, then use the chicken wire for another project.
