Chicken Wire Never Looked So Lovely

Chicken wire chic

Chicken wire made chic...gotta love that!  And with spring nearing my brain is on overdrive looking at how I can doll up my garden.  Over the past few months I have seen a few different ideas for ghost gowns or ghost dresses, most of which are too large for my garden, but the one that my friend Darlene made for her garden is just the right size.

She tells me that she made it by forming it around her own body.  Probably would be easiest to do this with a friend helping I imagine.  Once the form was to her liking she spray painted the wire lavender and added the ribbon at the waist which makes it just adorable.  Don't you think so too? 


  1. LOVE it!! I have got to try this in my garden this year!! What a wonderful look!! Thanks for sharing.

  2. I am a dress designer and gardener too. This is such a cute, creative idea.
    Thanks. Pinned it!

  3. VK, I am so happy you loved it. Thank you for pinning it!

  4. I think it would be great to protect a plant that was being attacked by bunnys or deer. Great idea!

    1. That is an interesting idea. I had never thought of that. Wire cloches that are pretty. Love it!
