6/30 | DIY 3D Geometric Shapes

I have been so excited to share this project with you all. Geometric shapes are super trendy right now as I am sure you can tell by going down the aisles of practically any store. I put my own twist on those 3D Geometric shapes you see out there. What I love most about these is how inexpensive they are while still making a big impact in your decor.

You will need: wooden dowels | hot glue gun | sand paper | Americana Decor Multi-Surface Paint | paint brush IMG_0061
Step 1: Cut the wooden dowels to the sizes needed for the shape you are making.
Cube: twelve 4 inch pieces   Prism:  six 6 inch pieces    Diamond:
Step 2: Sand the ends of the cut pieces. An easy way to do this is to rub the ends on a piece of sandpaper.IMG_0109IMG_0077 IMG_0092
Step 3: Construct the shape by glueing the dowels together with hot glue. Start with the base of the shape, the part that lays flat, and build up from there. The hot glued corners will look welded after they are painted.

Step 4: Paint your shapes with Americana Multi-Surface paint. The three colors that I picked were Iris, Coastal Waters, and Soft Jade. I love how they look together.

These DIY 3D geometric shapes turned out so cool! They make great accents for inexpensive room decor. They may seem a little intimidating but trust me, they are actually quite simple. I thought that the cube would be the easiest to make but it was surprisingly the most difficult.
