Follow my blog with Bloglovin I have always admired the high-end Urchin Iron Asterisk in the Gold leaf finish but not at $200 a piece. So I decided to recreate the look for the every day savvy homeowner. Get the look for less with this simple DIY project.
Here is the Step-by-Step:
For this project you will need:
- A hot glue gun
- BBQ Skewers
- Gold Spray Paint
Step 1: Cut the points off the end of the skewers and Cut Skewers in half
Step 2: Hot Glue an X with two skewers. (Repeat step three times)
Step 3: Interlock the (3) X's and secure with hot glue. The interlocking creates the frame of the asterisk and able to stand on it's own.
Stand 4: Apply more skewers until filled. Spin and glue to avoid empty spots
Step 5: Spray paint your urchin. Spin and spray until all edges are covered.
That's the finished look! Enjoy your urchin accessory on coffee tables or in a bookcase. Where will you display yours? Tag @byamadesigns on Instagram - I would love to see your finished look.
