Option Two: Form a Dome-Shaped Cloche Without a Frame

These chicken wire cloches can be easily made without a lampshade frame, as well. Simply cut a piece of chicken wire to approximately 20" x 10" with a pair of wire cutters. Roll wire into a cylinder and twist wires together to hold in place where ends meet (Image 1). Cut three to four vertical slits in top of the cylinder about 3 inches long (Image 2). Fold cut pieces in toward the center, so they overlap and form a dome shape (Image 3). Cut excess wire sections and twist ends together to hold dome shape. Make sure all edges are trimmed or folded under. Finally, spray with one coat of black satin spray paint and allow to dry prior to use (Image 4).
