DIY Wall Art!!

Standard

As a kid, everyone of us have some memories of doing crafts with Popsicle sticks. Isn’t it fun to create something again and feel nostalgic!! :-)Well, I have seen a ton of amazing stuff on internet that are made of popsicle sticks. But there was one wall art  that caught my eye  and I could’t resist to create.

Here is the link : http://www.pinkstripeysocks.com/2013/10/diy-honeycomb-hexagon-popsicle-stick.html

This is one of the simple, easy, quick and cheap wall art that can fill those big walls for less than 5 bucks..:) You need few popsicle sticks, super glue/hot glue gun & Paint. If the walls are dark colored I am sure the natural color of the sticks would look great.

And this is how mine looks 🙂

Well, the whole purpose of creating it is to make it as a collage photo frame. When the initial thought came up, I was confident that it is going to be easy, however, when I actually started putting things together  it wasn’t practical. I was very disappointed. It looked okay but not as I expected and here is the picture.

Firstly, since we rent this home,I wasn’t comfortable using any sort of tacky glue and place them well on the wall. So I had to create little room for a push pin 😦 Lastly, I added hexagon border to the  pictures and in that process there was misalignment ..:-(

Since, I am unable to decide if I should continue  adding pictures and make it a photo collage, I am open for inputs & suggestions.

Have a great day!!

Hi, I am very delighted that you stopped by! Welcome to Creative ME!!! I 'm a wife to an amazing hubby, an Asian(Indian) native, nomad for a while and finally settled @ The Grand Canyon State in 2012.

Some of them also said I should not look for a job, instead start a blog or sell some of my projects ;) They thought I was doing something very cool!! That was a great motivation and I decided to tickle my creative senses to tame the stress monster ;-) And then, one day here is my blog , where I share my ideas and projects with friends, family and all other aspiring DIY-er's :) And if you like my blog, please come back and also don't forget to tell your friends :) Lastly, if you have a fun and functional craft or project or even a simple recipe I want to hear….please let me know and I can feature, down the line we will make Creative ME to WE..;)
