DIY Easy Sculpture Ideas
Hi and thanks for checking out my project. I want to show you an easy DIY sculpture idea today.
To start my little project I needed a couple of items including this wooden box. I loved the bottom portion of the box because it would work as a perfect base for my DIY sculpture.
I am also going to use the large square dowels from the package of dowels.
To build the base of my DIY sculpture, I used a flat edge and pencil to mark the center of the bottom of the box.
Then, I used some No Nails glue to attach the dowel to the box bottom. This is a glue where you don't have to use nails...
but I did go ahead and add a little finishing nail to keep the dowel in place.
I also added a bead of hot glue around the base of the dowel for extra strength.
To build my modern sculpture, I used a big box of Tumbling Towers and start gluing them together.
I created a few different shapes before adding them to the sculpture tower by gluing them together with hot glue.
Once I had a few different shapes glued, I started building the sculpture by adding the blocks to the dowel. I created a mass cubistic shape using the blocks and just kept adding on and adding on.
I attached the blockers at all different heights and different levels.
Once the little piece was all glued together I left it to dry for a few hours and then used some black and gold spray paint to finish it off.
I love how easy this DIY geometric sculpture was and it cost next to nothing.

I tried it but I made mine a little larger. As soon as I get it painted I’ll send you a photo! Seriously the possibilities are endless! Thanks for the great idea and inspiration! I may make another one. The one I made today will grace the stage during a show at the local community theater!
