Today we are going to be making an over-sized, outdoor, tussy mussy of sorts. ?Typically, a tussy mussy is a small, triangular, metal vessel designed to hold flowers. ?Sometimes they are used in weddings to hold bouquets or placed on doorknobs in the home. ?This chicken wire version is a monster sized reconfiguration of the idea, meant to add an outdoor “vase” for your garden. ?These could also be really fabulous at an outdoor wedding to line the aisles!
