Knockoff Target Decor

The other day I was perusing home decor aisles in Target (they really do have great stuff) and I came across this piece I knew instantly that I could make myself.

This decor accent was modern and shiny, definitely something I would go for in my house. But the price tag was $14.99 or something and I knew I could make it for next to nothing.

I gathered a bunch of straight sticks. In hindsight, I should have sanded them or stripped the bark, but I didn’t. I clipped them into similar length pieces.

Using a hot glue gun, I began to glue the sticks together in a spherical shape.

It was arbitrary, I just did what looked good.

When I was done, I had two of these stick creations and they were ready to get spray painted!

I picked up leftover spray paint from my local household hazardous waste facility for free. To find out about how to get any color paint you want for free, read this!

I love how they turned out! One in silver, one in gold, and oh so shiny!

They do have some fuzzies on them from being sticks and all, I think if you sanded them that wouldn’t happen. I did consider using a smooth medium like straws for this project, but I didn’t think straws would be strong enough to stand on its own.
