Hi friends! It’s Destiny from A Place for Us Blog and I’m back today showing you a fun DIY project I recently made for my office gallery wall. I didn’t even know what I wanted to call it at first, but Studded Wall Love seamed appropriate. When it comes to crafting I’m all about easy and this project falls right into that category:0)
I think gallery walls of any kind are personal and unique. But it’s fun sometimes to look at something other than a photo or poster. It actually started out as a project with my boys, but I turned it into a little art project for my wall. I’m in the middle of making over my office and I just wanted to try out something new. You can do the same thing and make a state, shape, letter or anything else cool. I found my “spikes” on the jewelry isle at Michaels.
Wood Cut to Size
Gold Beaded Cones
I made my design pretty abstract but like I said you can make any shape you like.
Start with your wood cut to size and start placing the cones/spikes on. Have fun. Relax. It’s art:0)
Feel free to use craft glue, wood glue or any other friendly glue that you have on hand. With my piece I started at the top and made my way to the bottom and then flared out on the sides just a bit. Kinda looks like Italy;0)
After that, use your favorite spray paint and give it a spray all over. My favorite right now is Gold Glitter by Rust-Oluem. It gives the entire project a more chic look. I think this would look super cute in a boys room too. I’m thinking red, blue, green spray paint for a boyish look:0) My boys loved the feel of the spikes! We used them for some dinosaurs!
So, that’s a little different right?! But I really do love how it came out. Not super traditional, and a little more edgy than my style normally is but, it works! You can come and see the rest of my gallery wall over on A Place for Us along with some more updates!
