The charm is in imperfection. At Gardenista, we found many uses for these homemade, twisted wire frames, spotted via Luli. Here’s how to make your own using bendable wire, a pair of wire cutters, pliers, and twine:
Cut several equal lengths of wire and then use the pliers to fashion hanging loops and to wrap them around unmarked clear glass Test Tubes with round bottoms (available in a variety of sizes, for prices ranging from 45 cents to $1.50 each, from Science Company). Or cut a single long length and shape it into a round frame; to form a basket, attach pieces of equal length to the frame by twisting loops at the ends of each piece of wire.
Above: A 200-foot coil of 16 Gauge Steel Galvanized Wire is strong enough to do the job and still pliable enough to twist; $6.51 from Amazon.
Above: A ball of two-ply Jute Twine is $1.93 from Dick Blick.
