Anthropologie Inspired DIY Home Decoration


Last night, while I was browsing some home decor ideas, I came across something interesting. As I had all the materials at home, and a little spare time, I decided to give it a try.
Although I have no talent for mathematics and geometry, it seemed it's not that complicated. Assembling geometric shapes can`t be that hard, even for me ...
This idea is inspired by Anthropologie, and we all know they have so many beautiful things, but prices are often too high .
Inspiration for this DIY are this beautiful geometric pendant lamps.
I wanted something similar, geometrical shaped decorative item for the coffee table.
For this DIY, you will need:
-straws
-thread and needle
-scissors
-spray paint
-spray varnish

Cut the straws into desired length(requires two lengths, mine was a half of straw and a quarter of straw). Swipe the needle and threat through straws and connect them.
Make a triangle.Tie the knot on one end.
Make another two triangles,connecting it with the first one, and tie every one.
At last, add one shorter piece of straw and make a pyramid.
On the bottom of the pyramid add another two triangles (I decided to make it different size, because I thought it will make interesting shape).
And tie it firmly all together.
I filled the gaps with a pieces of straw, as you can see on the picture.
When it was all finished, I spray painted it with gold paint and clear varnish .
And got an Anthropologie inpired DIY decoration.
