{challenge tutorial + giveaway} chicken wire frame

For the last few weeks, the Piggy Bank Parties Crew has been working on a top-secret team challenge. The Crew was divided into two teams, given one theme and asked to create adorableness…on a budget!

I was teamed up with Mariah of Giggles Galore, Mayra of In Flight, and Aimee of Project Aimee. We dubbed ourselves the “Barnyard Babes” and quickly got to work. Ideas were flying like chickens fleeing the coop! I have to say, these girls have some serious talent!

Planning an event with 4 party planners from all across the country is definitely a challenge. Mariah took all of our ideas and pulled them together to create, what I believe to be, a fun and creative party! {Under budget, baby!}

My small role in this shindig included providing the food and snacks that could be shipped and handling the details for the Barnyard Buddies printable collection. We chose to use a custom 8″ x 10″ Menu, 8″ x 10″ Party Sign, Favor Tags, Party Cards, Banner and Lil’ Party Tags.

Here is a simple, yet adorable, way to display a Welcome Sign (or Menu). And…are you ready for this…it costs only $4! Yep, we party on a serious budget!

You will need:

  • 1 – 8″ x 10″ Frame (from any dollar store)
  • 1 Can of red spray paint
  • Enough chicken wire to fit the 8×10 frame
  • Cutting Sheers
  • Tacks (to secure the wire)
  • Miniature Clothespins

Start by removing the glass and backing from the picture frame. Then spray paint your frame.

 While the frame dries, cut the chicken wire to fit your frame.

Secure the chicken wire to the back of the frame using tacks (2-3 per side). Secure the sign with a miniature clothespin and…WAH-LAH! AdorableNESS!

I want to send Thank Moos and Love to the Barnyard Babes! They were an amazing group to work with! I’m very proud of how all of our crazy ideas came together! xoxo

  1. I;d love to put mini pies in my lunchbox for my own 30th birthday shindig coming in Sept!!

  2. I would put goldfish crackers in it. What kid doesn’t like those?

  3. Kettle corn. My 4 kids love it. I think I’ll go make some right now.

  4. I would let my daughter put whatever treat she wanted to in the lunch box…… which would most likely be ham & cheese & crackers. Her favorite. :)

    1. The lil’ piggy loves Ham & Cheese Crackers! Thanks for entering the giveaway!
