DIY Wall Art--Popsicle Stick Hexagon Shelf

Wall Art 05.20.16
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 Hour 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 glued my sticks to some poster board so there would be a base. I used dollar store sticks and two packs is great. I painted it all white and it's a nice catch all basket,
