My list of materials was short and simple:
wooden skewers // hot glue gun // Krylon gold spray paint
** side note: I found thin wooden dowels after I had finished this project that would work also **
I began by laying a foundation of skewers all facing the same direction but with varying space between and varying angles.Then I laid more skewers on top at angles in the opposite direction forming a cross-hatch of sorts and glued. I continued to layer the skewers in different directions until I had the pattern I was looking for, hot gluing as I went. * Finally, I spray painted the entire piece gold.
* Lessons learned: I didn't realize how much the hot glue would show up once painted. I would recommend spray painting the skewers/dowels first, then building and gluing.
Overall, I think it turned out very similar to the Nate Berkus for Target version. I plan to hang it in my foyer along with another piece of wall art I'm working on.
