Wall art can be expensive as fuhhh. It can be super hard to find something dope for a good price, especially if you’re looking for something that’s decently big. Hell, even those basic gradient sparkle paintings from Home Goods can be $60 for not a single reason.
My solution, as with anything that’s unnecessarily expensive, is to just make it myself.
I did some Pinterest creepin’ to get inspiration, and I noticed a lot of small popsicle stick diys. So I decided to do my own twist on it by making it bigger and throwing some paint on it.
If you want to recreate your own SUPER easy, super cheap (less than $10) wall art, read on:
The supplies you’ll need to get it done:
- Hot glue gun
- Popsicle sticks (I used this 200 pack from Amazon – $5!)
- Piece of paper
- Writing utensil
- Paint (optional)
Step 1: Glue together 6 popsicle sticks to form a hexagon.
Step 2: A trick to keeping the shape consistent as you keep adding more to the figure is to trace the shape on a piece of paper. Once you have it drawn out, cut it out to use as a guide.
Step 3: Using your guide, connect more hexagons to your existing figure. This is where you can get a little creative with the shape. The good thing about something so buildable like this is you can modify the shape as you go. I didn’t really have a plan for my figure, I just kept adding a little here, a little there.
Step 4 (optional): If light wood isn’t your thing, slap some paint on it. Paint it all the same color, alternate colors, or if you’re feelin’ real froggy, make a second structure to pair with your piece (like below)
We love cheap, and if cheap looks this good, why would you ever spend more money??
