Step 1:

Place the fence into a wooden plank or any flat working surface. Cut the spikes from the fence using your utility knife. Set aside the 3 pieces as you are still going to use them later on.

Step 2:

Using a sponge brush, paint the front of the fence. For the back, use a thin brush. Don’t paint the whole surface for a shabby chic look. Also, paint the spikes.

Step 3:

Trim the small triangles on the back bottom of the fence, be careful when doing this. Once you trimmed all of them, bend each one lightly to make a cage. Do not use too much force as it may break. Use a hair dryer to bend them easily.

Step 4:

Use the dollar tree wire to make a dome shape effect for the four corners. Bend the pieces while twisting the wire.

Step 5:

Attach the spikes on top of the cage using hot glue. Add hot glue to the corners to secure them. Once dried, paint the wires and hot glue.
