DIY Wall Art--Popsicle Stick Hexagon Shelf

482K Views
I absolutely love DIY projects that transform utilitarian everyday objects into unexpected works of art. Not only do these become fantastic conversation pieces in your home, they also allow you to create super budget-friendly art that doesn't feel too "crafty."
(Don't get me wrong, I love crafts. That's why I made a whole website about them. But I especially adore DIY that achieves a high-end look for a fraction of the price.)
Time: 1 Hours Cost: $5 Difficulty: Easy

In a moment of frozen-dessert-craft-mashup inspiration, it occurred to me that I could make an awesome mid century modern hexagon shelf with one of the most basic craft supplies out there--popsicle sticks. Wouldn't this just look amazing in Don Draper's office?!

The supplies for this project are simple--glue, popsicle sticks and wood stain. You can make the entire honeycomb shelf for a few bucks, especially if you already have wood stain laying around.

    I have a cache of popsicle sticks perfect for this idea - thanks!
    One question though - who's Don Draper?

    Perfect! My hubs is always eating popsicles, leaving the sticks wherever and the German Shepherd picks them up to chew on. Now, all I have to do is find them before Lucas does!

    HGTV magazine recently had shelves like these on their cover. I loved the idea, but upon researching where to get the shelves, I found them to be quite expensive -- around $40 each for unfinished shelves. Way over MY budget !! lol I never would

    I love this idea. It definitely is a project that can be done with kids from start to finish. Paint it, stain it or leave it natural and it is a keeper. Nice job.
