So I read up on the tutorial and decided to give it a try and make one of my own. For my first try I didn't want to spend too much money on it just in case it didn't turn out. So I headed to my local dollar store to see what I could find.
I picked up a canvas that cost a whole dollar$$$$! I then went on search for chopsticks, I found chopsticks but there were only 5 sets per package, at that price I may as well by a piece of artwork at a store somewhere. So I opted to switch it up a bit and use skewers instead.
I got my hot glue gun out and some gluesticks and away I went, it was a little tricky getting started but I managed to get a momentum going. I glued a few on one side then would turn it around and do the other.
Once all the sticks were glued on, I took it down to my basement (it's still winter here so can't do it outside) and proceeded to spray paint the whole thing in dark brown paint. Note: I made sure I painted both sides of the artwork as you want to ensure none of the white canvas is showing.
Here is my finished piece. It took me about an hour to put together and and the then the time to spray paint a few coats and let it dry. I was pleasantly surprised how how nice it looked once up on the wall. I definitely need to get a better capture of the finished product but for now this is the what it looks like.
It was such an easy project that plan to make a much larger and longer the next time.
