Target Inspired Wall Art


A few weeks ago this wall art from Target popped up on my Instagram feed. They were asking how people would style it. Well, of course, my first thought was "I can make that!"

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.
