Step by Step Learn the Easiest Farmhouse DIY Lampshade Makeover Out of Chicken Wire

"Farmhouse Lamps are something I adore. They are gorgeous and can bring so much character to a room. I found an iron lamp at the thrift store. So I decided to make a Farmhouse Lamp Shade out of chicken wire. I use chicken wire all the time. I love DIY chicken wire projects because they are so affordable. And absolutely love the rustic look it bring. It’s so easy to use and can be used for many different projects."

Materials List

  • Iron Lamp
  • Lamp Shade
  • Chicken Wire
  • Wire Cutters
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Black Acrylic Paint
  • Edison Light Bulb


  1. So to start out I cut the middle of the lamp shade. I left the circular top and bottom part of the lamp shade.

  2. I painted the circular part of the lamp shade black so it matched the iron lamp.

  3. Next you will want to wrap chicken wire around the lamp shade circle frame. Because that is the easiest way to measure how much chicken wire you should cut.

  4. And then you will hot glue chicken wire to the lamp shade circle frame.

  5. And that’s it. Just attach the lamp shade back onto the lamp. So here is an up close of the chicken wire lamp with the gorgeous Edison light bulb I bought for it.
