3 Unique Things To Use Wire Mesh For

Wire mesh, or chicken wire, is typically used to, well, house chickens and other animals in your yard. However, with more and more people wanting to follow in Chip and Joanna Gaines' tracks, people are using mesh wire for a variety of DIY projects. Plus, because wire mesh, such as from Midwestern Industries Inc, adds that country feel to just about any home, you can bring a taste of Fixer Upper into your house without actually having to go to Waco, Texas (unless you want to, of course). If you are wanting to spruce up your home without having to spend too much extra money, consider some of these fun wire mesh home decor ideas. Read on to learn more. 


Wire mesh baskets are a fun and unique way to organize your home. Whether you store shoes in them or you use them to house decorative objects, wire baskets are a must-have for just about every household. Plus, available at just about every home goods store, you can find an affordable mesh basket without having to spend too much extra money. 

A Planter

If you are more environmentally conscious and are looking for a way to add some dimension to either your outdoors or indoors, consider creating a wire planter and putting either succulents or rocks in it. To do so, simply form some mesh wire into a square shape using wire cutters. Then, add either rocks or desert friendly plants like succulents into them-- this will create a chic way to spruce up your porch, living room, or virtually any other area of your house without having to waste money on traditional plants. 

Jewelry Holder

Another great thing that you can do with wire mesh is to create a jewelry holder. Simply grab a traditional picture frame, remove the glass and back and add wire mesh instead. Then, use the little brackets on the back of the frame to hold it in place. From there, you can hang necklaces, earrings, or any other jewelry that you like to wear-- eliminating clutter in the process. 

You may not realize it, but wire mesh is a versatile project that can be used for more than just housing chickens. From baskets to jewelry holders, wire mesh can help add a more country feel to your overall home decor. If you are looking for a budget friendly way to enhance your home's overall decor, consider getting some wire mesh.
