So I've had many ideas on how to create the armature for the Chihuly tower! If you have some ideas you'd like to share...please leave a comment. I bought chicken wire at the local TSC(after seeing another teacher use chicken wire)...but had to figure out how I was going to make it stand & take shape. I ended up cutting out circles of cardboard so that it would hold its shape. I then wired yard sticks to the end so I could anchor it in the ground. This has worked out very well. Like I said...there are many ways you can do this, and I'd love to hear what you've done or are considering doing.
