I have made a few of these metal star with berry wreath on chicken wire hangings for my daughter, sister, and friend recently. Doesn't that sound like a Hallmark commercial? Anyway, one of my other daughters asked if I would make one for her with "weathered wood", a cream star, and brown chicken wire. I love everything about this, but especially the L-shaped connectors that hold the mitred wood frame together. They don't show up much in the picture.
Put steel wool in a canning jar and cover with vinegar (I used white). Let sit 12-24 hours. Mine sat 36.
