In autumn I bought a fun chicken-wire frame at a craft show from Shantilly, and since then I’ve had fun restyling it for different holidays and seasons. November’s design reminded us to give thanks, December’s spoke of joy, and January’s is all about snow . . . a clip-art mitten illustration mounted on scrapbook paper, letters snipped from alphabet fabric, and tiny clothespins to hold everything in place. ♥
That is a versatile frame. Just keep changing it for different seasons and reasons! Cool.
It was definitely a perfect craft show purchase at $8 or so! 🙂 And I love the pop of red in the dining room all year ’round.
Your frame is cute but could I share some of our almost 3′ of snow with you? Here’s hoping you get some snow of your own because I know you need the moisture. Happy New Year!
Yikes! Stay safe and warm, Judy!!! Hugs, Katherine
And to think when I was a kid, I thought chicken wire was only good for chickens. I love this idea – I could try holding some of my japanese chickens that way. They move around too much though. 😆
That made me laugh! 🙂
Katherine, I absolutely love that! I can see so many possibilities 🙂
Thank you, Pam! It was one of those fun purchases that just keeps on giving! 🙂
Thank you! And it made it snow here . . . brrrrrrrrrrrrrr! 🙂
A lovely idea. Gave me a giggle cos I only saw snow once after a long car drive and we are very hot here!
We had below-zero wind chill here in Kansas yesterday . . . plus snow . . . cold but pretty! 🙂
I knew we would see it at the beginning of each month. I’m hoping that we can move on quickly……this next week is going to be brutal!!!!!! Cute display, though!!!!
Even Kansas has below-zero wind chill right now, so I know what you mean! Stay safe and warm!
love things that can be changed seasonally…my centerpiece on my kitchen table…is what I change!
I would love to see it! Have you written a blog post about it, Marilyn? If so, could you send me a link? 🙂
Happy New Year, Katherine! Hope you’re staying warm & cozy over there. xx
I’m so lucky to be able to work from home now so I don’t HAVE to get out . . . I can just enjoy the pretty snow-scenes through my window! 🙂
Very clever and cute!
Thank you, Victoria! It’s fun to be able to do an easy 5-minute holiday craft each month! 🙂
…and it did! Happy New Year.
Here, too! So pretty . . . but SO cold! 🙂
Too cold!!! Stay warm and enjoy the day.
I love the versatility and function of this type of crafted item. So many ways to use this. Nice job.
Thank you! It was a fun find . . . and fun to restyle each month, too! 🙂
Just love this frame. And that is exactly what it is doing here…SNOWING and snowing and snowing.
We got a “little” snow with a “BIG” windchill this weekend! Ready for a warmer day tomorrow . . . hope you get one too, Ginny! 🙂
Thank you, Erin! 🙂
What a lovely piece of art!!!! You’re so creative 🙂
Thank you so much for your sweet comment! Hugs, Katherine
What a great idea – love the way you can keep changing it. x
Thank you! It’s definitely a fun find for someone who love to dabble in crafting! 🙂
Adorable! I’m looking forward to each frame “creation of the month” this year! 🙂
Thank you! It’s fun that the red frame works for lots of holidays! 🙂 Have a blessed week, dear Kim!

Oh man that is so cute. My niece asked me if I would be interested in having a frame similar to yours to hang my crochet pieces on in my booth. I might just have to have her make me one. 🙂 Thanks for sharing.
Tamara, that’s such a good idea!!! And you can make them in all sizes . . . plus the little clothespins come in all sizes, too. Can’t wait to see your next booth! Hugs, Katherine
