DIY Popsicle Wall Art

Happy New Year to you all. I know it's a little late but it's better late than never.
How is everyone? 
The family and I are great, Thuraya is now one year old.
Could you beleive how time flies, OMG!!
She's walking, trying to talking and turning our lives absolutely up-side-down.
She's a little firecracker and runs the whole house.
We wouldn't have it any other way.

Today, we're doing something soo easy, a kid can do it. 
Seriously, my 10 year old actually made one for her room as well. 
I needed something to unique to dress up 2 long walls that are located on the side of my windows. Then I ran into this YouTuber call Treshaja. 

Her channel is below:

She's so inspirational and does wonderful DIY's. I had to make this easy project even if I didn't use it but I did.. 

Large Popsicle Sticks
Hot Glue Gun
Glue Stick
Something to stick it on the wall. I used clear thumb tacks.

Step 1:
Hot glue 4 popsicle sticks in a square.
I made 12, but you can make more or less..

Step 2:
Glue them in any pattern you'd like.

Step 3:
Paint your wall art any color you'd like.
I painted mine Gold.

Hang your beautiful wall art you created.
There you have it. 
The most easiest DIY ever...

And it looks like a masterpiece..
I made 2 to go on the ends of each windows and they look as if they were bought at a high-end store. 

I hope you like this quick and easy DIY and promise not to be gone too long..

Until Next Time....
