Happy Monday folks!
Today I have a quick and easy DIY project for you. I have dubbed it “Wooden Sticks Wall Sculpture”
I spotted this picture on Instagram via “Inspired By Charm” not too long ago and had to have a few of these wall hangings for myself
I took to the internet to find out where I could get my hands on these wall sculptures. I didn’t really find a wall sculpture, but found this table top object at Dwellstudio.com

The only problem, it was $375 and it wasn’t a wall sculpture.
So, guess what I did? I made my own. I have made only one so far for my son’s bedroom makeover for the One Room Challenge but I plan to make another one with the left over supplies
Interested in making your own?
Here’s what you will need………
Wooden dowels – These I got at Michael’s
Hot glue gun
Notice that the picture contains floral wire, which I didn’t end up using. All that was needed to hold the dowels together is the hot glue.
Using the picture above as reference, I laid out the base of the sculpture using the wooden dowels.
Here I started with the floral wire and quickly realized it was making the process a bit more tedious than it needed to be. Plus I didn’t like the thought of the wire being visible with the finished product.
I continued to layer the wooden dowels until I was happy with the general layout, then I started to glue the dowels together.
This is what I ended up with after gluing all the pieces together. Close enough 🙂
The next step is to remove the glue residue and then spray paint. Of course I chose gold, but it could also be painted silver or any other color you like.
Here is the finished product hung in my son’s bedroom.
It adds a nice texture to the room, and a great piece for this small wall.
Here’s a closer look
This project cost about $20.00 and took about 45 minutes to complete.
Thanks for stopping by today!
Wishing You Beauty and Inspiration!
