Hi everyone! Today, I am going to show you a new way to bring the outdoors in that results in a creative piece of DIY 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. You can check if your area has one, otherwise splurge and buy a $3 can.

Make these knockoff Target decor pieces yourself with sticks and spray paint. So easy!

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.

This modern decor is so cheap; you would never know they were sticks unless you took a close look!

I hope you liked my easy idea for knockoff Target decor and found my tutorial photos helpful. Tell me, would you try making this for your home?

Until next time!

Signature welcome to the woods

    Hi Melissa,
    I love your creativity! Such an excellent sense of style and imagination. I bet your whole house is like an issue of Better Homes and Gardens. Your stick spheres are so crazy cool. Outstanding. Thanks for posting, I’m going to try this out and see if I can do it too.
