chicken wire wreaths

author62(z6 Alaska)November 17, 2004

Hi folks,

Can anyone tell me what size of chicken wire frame I need to cut to make a 20-22" (finished sized) pine Christmas wreath? I'm interested in making the tubular form which will be joined on the ends to make a circle wreath form.

Thanks in advance for any advice of tips.

The only reference I've seen to chicken wire wreaths is in
Malcolm Hillier's Book of Dried Flowers. Here's the directions given: "Cut a piece of 1 ft. chicken-wire to the length of the circumference of the base you want".
